  • The majority of the movie had nothing to do with the case.
  • although very well acted, the movie lacked spark and the storyline was a little difficult to follow - De Palma, as usual, forgets to let the story tell itself adn seems wrapped up in making the pic look pretty
  • really boring and weird
  • The book was alot better. The film version came within inches of capturing the pacing, settings and feelings of the book. But it fell flat on its face within those few inches. Thanks for the Josh Hartnett "buff" shot though, woo hoo!
  • Slow, boring, one of the worst movie I`ve seen this year.
  • I found this movie to be brilliantly crafted, making the audience feel like they`ve been transported through time to late 40`s Hollywood, California. The colours, the language, and the overall look, was very nostalgic. As for the murder mystery aspect, I found the artistic embellishment of the real facts to fabricate a very believable story, very intuitive. I know the crime has remained an unsolved mystery for more than fifty years, but the brutality of the crime, still leaves me bothered.
  • I was excited to see this movie for the interesting murder in the storyline. But the movie wasn`t much about that. I was really disappointed in that aspect of it. But all in all it wasn`t a bad movie.
  • in my 50 years of movie going I had only walked out of one movie,"Casanova" waaay back in 1976,this boring mess of a movie gets the honor of being the second, not even the gorgeous Scarlett could persuade me to sit through this torture.
  • I thought this movie was a huge disappointment. They story line was dragged out and uneventfull. Save your hard earned money and rent this on video!!!
  • Waited half an hour for the film to pick up and start to get good. Decided not to torture myself any further and got my money back.
