There were two reasons why I was very excited to see the new Zodiac movie.
1. The Zodiac Killer’s reign of terror occurred in the areas surrounding where I grew up.
2. David Fincher directed it, as well as Seven, one of my top five favorite movies of all time.
Even with high expectations, the movie didn’t disappoint. The acting was great, the plot was engaging, and the overall tone was fitting of such a dark and mysterious story. You really get a feel for the cat and mouse game that the Zodiac Killer, the police, and the newspapers were all playing. You also get a great sense of the obsession that those trying to solve the case had, as well as the frustration and struggle that they had to go through. I don’t want to share too much and ruin it for anyone who plans on seeing it, so I’ll just say that I recommend this movie to everyone, and that I give it a solid A.
