1.0 out of 5 stars Ambulance-Chasing Exploitation At Its Worst March 26, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
It's hard to tell what's more appalling, that people would so eagerly cash in on a horrific murder, or that they would do such a rank-ametuer job of it. The producers rushed this film into production shortly after Cunanan's death, filming it in 22 days for $5 million. Based on the finished product, it looks like they spent $10 on the screenplay, $90 on the props, $900 on videotape, and $4,999,000 on acting lessons for Shane Perdue. I don't know how Perdue could be cast in a high-school talent show, let alone a motion picture. An embarrassed Franco Nero plays Gianni Versace by averting his eyes and sighing his lines, as though hoping no one recognizes him. Playing a fictional FBI agent leading the investigation, Steven Bauer just goes through the motions with "where's my paycheck?" restlessness. He would have been convincing if he were playing a lawyer for Enron. Nothing else works, either. The script provides less insight than a National Enquirer article, the the score could be described as disco elevator music. There is not one scene, performance, or technical aspect of this film that's worth watching. This isn't even good opportunism.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too bad for TV October 13, 1999
THE VERSACE MURDER was originally planned to air as a US made-for-TV movie, but the plan was nixed quite possibly because of the shoddy execution of the film. While the excellent techno-rock score by ex-Goblin member Claudio Simonetti and the performance of lead Franco Nero can make the film watchable for some, the rest of the participants are terrible. Model-turned-actor Shane Perdue, who plays Cunanan, is embarrassingly impossible to watch. Initial reports suggested that director Menahem Golan was seeking to avoid exploitation, but instead the film seems to be nothing but. There seems to be little concern on the part of the filmmakers to tell the story with class and quality. Buy the soundtrack CD to obtain the film's best element and skip the film itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Late night Rental. January 9, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
FOUND THE MOVIE FAST PACED AND ENTERTAINING.DUBIOUS FACTUAL ACCURACY.HIGHLIGHT FOR ME WAS DAVID WOLFSON[ jeffrey trail].Gave an urgency to the events. Other actors seemed to just walk through their scenes, except STEVEN BAUER.ANYONE WITH PRURIENT INTEREST IN THE DARKER SHADES OF GAY LIFE WILL STAY ENGAGED.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Drivel December 2, 1999
By Miguel
Format:VHS Tape
Don't waste your time.
An amateur night at the set, whoever though Shane Perdue (?) was a suitable actor must belong to an extraterrestrial culture. Awfully shot and written, full of loopholes and inaccuracies, even Nero looks properly embarrassed.
An "Ambulance chasing" production a viewer must avoid at all costs. Ugh.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Nero Surrounded By Amateurs February 4, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I feel so bad for Franco Nero. He is such a talented actor and , as always, he is good in this movie. The story is good also, but the real problem is everything else. The other "actors" (with the exception of Steven Bauer) are absolutely pathetic. I've seen better acting on an episode of 'Cops'. The direction is far below sub-standard. Ed Wood would laugh at this. For fans of Nero and bad movies only.
