I love a good mystery thriller. Movies like The Silence of the Lambs and Prisoners are films that get my heart racing, my eyes widening, and leaves me riveted! So of course, being the thriller lover that I am, I decided to watch Zodiac; a movie that features the real life crime story of a serial killer from the late 60s’ through 70s’ by the name of Zodiac who was terrorizing California.
Starring in the film were three Marvel alums; Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and its lead actor, Jake Gyllenhaal. They each injected a sense of life into the movie but it was Gyllenhaal who stole the show, his frantic youthful obsession with discovering the identity of the serial killer driving the story forward.
I really enjoyed the movie. It felt like a cross between Spotlight and Prisoners and its last twenty-thirty minutes were uber frightening. I found myself actually peeking through the fingers a few times because it was that scary.
Is this the best movie I’ve ever seen, no, but it was enjoyable.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
