Starkweather is the kind of mean-spirited film that uses violence as a way of selling itself and shocking its audience.
Audience Reviews for Starkweather
The true story of Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugit, who went on a killy spree, often compared to 'Badlands' although this is the actual story of the pair, but evidently not as popular. Also I'm sure 'Natural Born Killers' was probably influenced by the original story too.
This story is one to be watched if you have a general interest into the case, however it's comparison to the film 'Monster' in terms of quality is definitely not accurate.
Awful. The actress who played Caril Ann Fugate was hardly convincing as a 14-year old, and the script wasn't very good. There are better versions of Starkweather's story.
What's good about it? Well, it's got some pretty shocking murderous scenes, and the girlfriend is an interesting piece of work. What's bad, everything else! The movie makes us believe this guy was mentally disturbed as he conjures up the image of a faceless man, but there is no great payoff for such unecessary plot lines.
