This evening I saw the movie “Zodiac” at UA Cinema, Time Square, Causeway Bay.
After watching the trailer for this movie I was anticipating a movie of intriguing plot with a difference, but fifteen minutes into the movie I realized my assumption was incorrect. The plot does have the twist and turns of a murder mystery, unfortunately this was only evident on the surface.
Much has to do with Jake Gyllenhaal’s acting and his character “Robert Graysmith”. Graysmith is very similar to the obsessive nature of the character, “Anthony Swofford” that Gyllenhaal played in the 2005 movie, Jarhead.
I am now batting 3 for 3 in bad movies. Is it time for me to review my criterions before choosing the next movie to watch?
