Audience Reviews for Karla

Rather disturbing movie. Perspective is seemingly biased. News accounts of actual crime told a different tale, so I am not sure that I am buying the ole "he made me do it" perspective. She is just as much of a nutcase as he is, I think.

Very good acting and entertaining BUT this movie was not real enough or explicit enough for being based on real sickening events.

To me, any accomplice to murder is just as guilty as the person committing it. That's why I am so repulsed by this movie, because it portrays Karla Homolka as a tragic heroine, a victim. Anyone who knows how tragic and sensitive this case was knows that Karla is no victim. There is no reason that a movie should be made of it, especially not one like this.

Although interesting and quite informative of the actual case, the film is told through Karla's point of view. Not such a great idea for a script as she constantly, as does the film, paints her out to be a victim. Often more so than the actual victims. The acting is good and very believable, but the whole film is overshadowed by a certain cheapness of direct to TV quality. A different angle and a more two sided debate would have improved the film, but as it is it is an average true life serial killer picture.
