One word review: Terrorizing!
Did you know?
The movie is based on a true story about a long running criminal case in the state of California.
Zodiac is a mystery thriller film narrating the events of terrifying crime that is set in the 60's and 70's period. The story is based on true events and hence the narration follows event driven plot rather than character driven.

The most admirable aspect of the movie is the characterisation of the multitude of the characters. With three big stars sharing the screen together, sincere effort has been made to develop and expose the nature of characters. The focus of narration is mainly centred around the antagonist but is also divided among the main characters. At first, we see the perspective of the protagonist and then we switch over to the perspective of other characters.

There are no dull moments even though the movie's runtime is over two and a half hours. Each and every scene is packed with elements of mystery and suspense. The filmmakers had decided to stay true to the real events of the criminal case upon which the movie is based on and so the denouement is a big let down. You end up watching a mystery which is unsolved.

Verdict: A Blockbuster Thriller Ride!
