Review by H Brandon (posted on 2-Apr-2008)
Mark Harmons portrait is very well done. There are some moments where the Bundy character seems to have an afterthought, where you can see that something is going on that barely shows on the surface and makes him complex with a subtility rarely seen. Harmon has one of his best moments where he is caught and wonders where it would be "the biggest chance to get the death penalty". Not because of remorse, but out of some uncanny interest, and curiosity. Bundy thought he could outwit the court anyway, and if not...
This is a film well worth its stars. I recommend it, basically because the usually brilliant Harmon makes an extra brilliant performance.
