Englishpsycho’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was such a fun film to watch. I love murder mysteries and this was so good and it makes it so much better that it was based on a true story.
The film grabs you from the opening gruesome scene. The film always keeps you guessing and hooked as to who the murderer is.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Mark Ruffalo put on great performances. They really make this film more of a delight than it already is. Robert Downey Jr is being Robert Downey Jr, so that’s great.
I knew who the killer was as soon as I heard him talk because of previous scenes. Even when they said it wasn’t him I just didn’t believe them.
Overall, Zodiac is a true spectacle directed by the brilliant David Fincher. It’s so good just to watch it unfold and it’s safe to say this film is one of the greatest murder mysteries of all time. Cheerio!
