Zodiac

Zodiac ★★★★½

This is probably one of the best mystery thrillers I've ever seen. If I didn't notice that the movie was 2 and a half hours before I started watching I wouldn't have even guessed. For as long as this movie is I was completely engrossed in the story the entire time.

This movie has an amazing cast. Ruffalo, Downey, Gyllenhaal, and all of the other supporting characters give great performances. Gyllenhaal especially is the best part of the film because he is the one person that seems to kind of tie all the aspects of the film together. His character is obsessed with ths Zodiac case for 20 years or however long and Gyllenhaal's performance makes it totally believable.

This mystery and this story is so interesting that I am so glad this movie was made. I didn't know very much about the Zodiac Killer before watching this and now that I have it's so hard to believe that this all really happened. The ending is very satisfying because it very clearly wants us to believe that we know who the killer is and that he's dead now, but it also leaves a bit of lingering doubt in the back of our mind wondering, was he really the killer? I was considering rating this 5 stars, but I think I might need to wait until I see it again before I decide. If you love mystery, and honestly even if you don't, watch this movie.
