Obsession is the real subject here, and obsessing about anything briskly doesn't count. Yet the film also feels self-obsessed, an intriguing drama that slowly devolves into a bleak meditation on the absence of dramatics.

As the Zodiac case fizzles out, the movie appears to contort itself.

Ultimately the lack of tautness in the storytelling, seemingly stemming from a desire to be as faithful as possible to Graysmith's book, costs the film dearly.

A long movie with lots of suspects and details but no pay-off.

The movie, directed by David Fincher, is not without value, if it's largely without drama.

Zodiac certainly has its moments, but it's no masterpiece.

It is not its lack of resolution that makes Zodiac a poor film, it is its stupefying dull progression.

When even David Fincher can't make a compelling, innovative Zodiac Killer film, it's time to hang up the old ciphers.

At over two-and-a-half hours of dead-ends and bedevilment, there isn't enough intrigue to justify the empirical extents Fincher is intent on mapping.

The film's interest is in the tireless legwork of detective work, which is accurately portrayed, though which also is so tedious, the film can't help but follow suit.

David Fincher's Zodiac begins by announcing itself as being based on actual case files. Then it spends the next two-and-a-half hours proving it.

Despite Fincher's gritty atmosphere of ominous dread, the characters are simplistic and sketchy, there's little fear and suspense and no satisfactory conclusion. Tedious!

Without a persuasive ending, Zodiac is an exercise in frustration.

For all its dramatic flaws, Zodiac deserves praise for not choosing the easy route.

Zodiac is a meandering, bland film that clocks in at nearly three hours and feels like at least eight.

This movie just goes on and on and on, with a marked lack of dramatic tension. Two hours forty minutes, but if you blink you miss the guy they blame for the killings.

Missing the operatic sense of doom that helped characterize 1995's Seven, Zodiac's effort to avoid sensationalism conversely becomes disrespectfully unemotive.

There's something to be said for a 158-minute movie that manages to hold your attention; still, it's just not the great accomplishment it's been painted as.

A psycho-killer detective story with a less-than-thrilling pace and length.

Mr. Fincher's flair for casting is the major asset of his curiously attenuated return to the serial-killer genre.
