I have never done a movie review, but I think I am going to start. This way I can force myself to sit down and watch movies.
SPOILERS DOWN BELOW:
The movie was about the crimes and trial of Ted Bundy.
Overall, I liked the movie. There were good things about it that I love, but there were also things that I wish would be changed.
One problem that I have with the movie is that it seems to glorify Ted Bundy. Zac Efron almost made me believe that Ted Bundy was innocent. It is crazy to think that he kept up the act of saying he was innocent for over a decade.
The way Zac Efron played Ted Bundy was incredible. At the end, it showed clips from the actual trial, and it was incredibly similar.
I also kind of understand why they “glorified” Ted Bundy. During this time, a lot of women were strangely attracted to him. It was said that some even dyed their hair the right kind of brown so that he might be attracted to them. Ted Bundy was extremely charismatic, and this was how he lured women to their death.
In the movie, they showed that side of him. The side that all the women liked. I wish they would have shown the evil side of him more. The movie did not justify how bad of a person he was.
Have you seen the movie? What did you think?
