Writing and directing are really inspired. This movie is NOT fact based, it is absorbing as a serial killer thriller however.
Chloë Grace Moretz plays a young troubled teen, taken in by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. When the killer decides to play a cat and mouse game with the cops, Chloë Grace Moretz becomes a missing pawn. The acting was excellent, even Worthington who I don't normally like. I enjoyed the steel guitar soundtrack. The plot lacked a good twist and needed a little more depth. If you enjoy a police crime drama, check it out. As a mystery... there are not enough characters for that.
F-bomb, no sex or nudity. Adult sex talk.
The story is grim and unfortunately so is the film version written by Don Ferrarone, a federal agent who investigated the slaughters, who has said `If you can just imagine having one of these little girls out here...one of these young girls out here...and there's no chance for them to be rescued, to be helped. And they're on they're own.' It was the haunting faces of the lost that inspired Ferrarone to write the screenplay for the film.
The story for the film changes the names of everyone.Read more ›
If you are looking for someone closer to the crimes this isn't for you. If you are looking for a mystery and thriller this would be a great movie. It's not heavy on any blood or gore so it's nothing crazy either. For those that don't like blood in movies and over the top killing. It's maybe 5% murders and the rest is all about the characters and chasing someone they believe to be the murder. Sometimes I was confused where the direction of the movie was going but it ended up where in the beginning I had predicted.
Had this movie been more around the killings I would have enjoyed it because I like the closer it is to the actual events and more about the crimes it's more interesting. Knowing about the detective and his partners ex-wife isn't something I needed to know. That's just me.
But, they took good actors and good material and did a poor job of tying everything together and making it into a good movie.
The plot of the movie was full of holes and hard to follow. They did a bad job with the sound recording. And, it made it hard to hear the actor's dialog and still harder to follow the plot.
