45 out of 100  Excellent

Very much influenced other serial killer movies, in particular se7en. Based on a true story, this movie however focuses not on the serial killer but mainly on the men that were obsessed with finding out the identity of the killer who taunted the media and police at the time, urging them to find out who he was.

This is a look at a real life serial killer in San Francisco in the 1970's and how the hunt to find him affected the lives of three men, two journalists and a cop. Although it could afford to lose 15 - 20 minutes, this is an engrossing and entertaining film which captures the times perfectly. All three leads are strong, as are the rest of the experienced cast. Well worth seeing.

If thrillers are your type of movie and you like a movie that keeps you guessing all the way then Zodiac is a great selection. It’s well acted and the story is based on events that happened in the 1960. For me that just makes it even more powerful. Well worth a watch.

slow, dull, slow, boring, slow, annoying. It's hard to imagine how a director with Fincher's proven skill can come along and take something as interesting as the Zodiac killings and make it this dull.

Dissapointed with this to be honest, too much time spent on the psychological aspect of the killer and not enough showing his crimes. Average really

35 out of 100  Long but rewarding
Ciaran from Dublin, 23 Jan 2008
A movie that will reward the patient among you, Zodiac is a deep look into the investigation that followed the Zodiac killer who terrorised the San Fran area from the late 60's into the 70's. As it is a true story it is more than interesting and, for the most part, the whole movie is well done and keeps the interest. It does sag a bit in the middle and this may bore some viewers but apart from that this is a very well acted and immersive experience.

Tom from Wicklow, 12 Dec 2007
This is not your usual film. Its a book adaptation mixed with a documentary mixed with a movie but it definitely works. Its long but we were engrossed in it for the entire time. the acting is excellent, the story is complex and bloody scary even more so knowing its true. Cant recommend it enough. Its not your popcorn movie all action flick, more of a continual slow burn. A+

Martin from Kerry, 28 Dec 2007
This is a very good movie. Don't approach it as a crime thriller or a suspense movie. This is about the reality of searching for a killer, its also about how the search affected the lives of those involved. If you want an intelligent film rent this, and do view the making of to see how accurate the film tried to be.
