Editorial Reviews

Inspired by true events, BLUE CAPRICE investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Recently abandoned by his mother, teenager Lee Malvo (Tequan Richmond) finds an unlikely father figure in John Allen Muhammad (Isaiah Washington, Grey's Anatomy), who takes the boy in and shows him the moral decay of the society that declared him unfit to be a husband and parent. Before long the impressionable Lee follows in John's footsteps and learns the art of killing for vengeance. When John obtains the whereabouts of his estranged wife and children, he outfits a blue Chevy Caprice with a shooting bay and he and Lee head for Maryland. What follows is a weeks-long assault that held the nation's capital in fear as the duo's sniper attacks took the lives of innocent men, women, and children until their apprehension by police. Featuring captivating performances by Washington and Richmond, BLUE CAPRICE paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and is a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that endures long after the final frame. "Riveting.a masterfully controlled thriller driven by the intense mesmerizing performances of Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond." - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chilling! September 18, 2013
By scoop
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Very Dark and Chilling movie. I lived in that area during the shootings, and found myself watching my back everywhere I went. A lot was left out, but it was probably because most people knew the outcome. Both Isaiah Washington and Tequan did an outstanding job playing the parts of the lead characters. Made my blood chill.

This movie is intense from the get go. And not one second, nor one glance is wasted, It is a deep psychological thriller, full of suspense. I thought the actors, the script, the editing, the music was all hauntingly engaging,

Format:DVD
In the fall of 2002, a series of inexplicable killings took place in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Over the course of three weeks, ten people were killed and three were injured. The murderers were known as "The Beltway Snipers"—a middle-aged African-American man named John Allen Muhammed and a 17-year-old accomplice named Lee Boyd Malvo. They seemingly picked their targets at random, and their precise motives were never fully established. Muhammed was executed in 2009, while Malvo remains in prison. Much of the case remains a mystery.

Alexandre Moors' directorial debut Blue Caprice seeks to unravel a bit of the mystery…or does it? The film claims that it's merely "inspired by the true story" (which generally serves as Hollywood-speak for "we changed almost everything"), but Moors actually hews pretty close to the established facts and doesn't sensationalize things at all. Almost everything the film tells us about these guys is something that has already been stated elsewhere, from their detailed plot to hide their true motives to the dark inspiration Malvo found in The Matrix. Unfortunately, what the film doesn't do is illuminate the situation any more than the news reports did back in 2002. After spending an hour and a half with these two troubled individuals, we don't feel as if we really know or understand them any better than we did beforehand.

I'm a little dismayed at how empty Blue Caprice feels, because Moors and his collaborators clearly have some talent. It's an artful experience in many regards, and the mostly-silent opening sequence sets us up for a hushed, meditative experience that is more interested in showing than telling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Story of the Beltway Snipers December 31, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
In 2002, ten people were randomly assassinated in the Washington D.C. area by a duo called the Beltway Snipers. Blue Caprice, a film by Alexadre Moors investigates these events.

The film opens with the lush blues and greens of tropical Antigua, but to the young protagonist Lee Malvo (Tequin Richmond) having just been abandoned by his mother, this island paradise has become a prison. Just in time Lee is saved by John, a caring neighbor played Isaiah Washington. The pair soon depart Antigua for the US, Lee as John’s adopted son.

Fast-forward a few months to Tacoma, Washington. John’s pathological personality has begun to emerge. Father and son drift from couch to couch. John’s other kids have been taken away by their mother, a restraining order officially filed. Enter firearms, and John’s maniacal attempt to transform Lee into an automaton assassin begins.

John locates his ex-wife and kids in Maryland. Out for blood, John and Lee head east in a blue 1990 Chevy Caprice, what will become the epicenter for their killing spree. When they reach the Eastern US John’s psychopathology is unleashed and Lee is forced to help avenge a fictitious, eternal grudge.

Director Moors shows us that Lee is undoubtedly a bright kid. He memorizes his combat manual in detail and applies the instruction with expert precision. Had he been a year older Lee may have applied these mercenary skills in the Army. We sense Lee feels remorse and does not want to become a hardened, senseless killer. In a touching scene, Lee steals, of all things, veggie burgers.

Post Boston Marathon bombings, this film resonates strongly of the psychologically excruciating manipulation of the underling by the elder. After the Tsarnev brothers we why not keep this dialogue open? Or should we wait until after another docum-drama shows us the horrors, or another atrocity occurs?

It was too short, but excellent piece of work. A lot of details were left out of the movie, but for people that are familiar with the incident it was a great unfortunate recapture.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Blue Caprice' cold, calculating September 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The month of October in 2002 was an understandably difficult time for the residents of Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia - not to mention the United States as a whole. For those that don't recall, this was the time when John Allen Muhammad and his apparent patsy, Lee Boyd Malvo, went on a killing spree in what is now referred to as the "Beltway snapper attacks." Over a three week span, ten people were murdered, while three more were injured as innocent people were struck down by sniper bullets, seemingly without pattern or motive. Initially, these attacks were thought to have been carried out by assailants using a white van, but it was eventually uncovered that Malvo and Muhammad were using the now infamous blue Chevy Caprice. The new film, Blue Caprice, attempts to chronicle the psychological driving force behind the killings.

Alexandre Moors makes his feature length directorial debut with Blue Caprice, starring Isaiah Washington as John Allen Muhammad and Tequan Richmond as the young Lee Boyd Malvo. After being abandoned by his mother, the impressionable Malvo meets Muhammad while Muhammad is vacationing with his kids in the Caribbean. Flash forward several months - Muhammad leads Malvo to the United States, acting as his father figure. Fueled by anger after his wife takes his children from him, Muhammad plots against the "system" by forcing (or encouraging) Malvo to maniacally act on his behalf. The pair travels the United States in a blue Caprice, carrying out random murders, thrusting the country into a state of fear and disarray. Joey Lauren Adams and Tim Blake Nelson also star in supporting roles.

To be certain, Blue Caprice is a chilling, uncomfortable film that chronicles a cryptic series of events.
