Pretty good film, highly fascinating. Half a point off for factual inaccuracies. A great work of fiction, but the truth of the Zodiac mystery is not found here.

A great American crime film. It takes the true story of the infamous Zodiac Killer and creates a narrative around it. The film's three part storytelling was both suspenseful and dynamic. The entire cast gave a great effort and made the experience all the more enjoyable. David Fincher's style was slightly tweaked to fit the time period, but it still is very much his film.

Such a great film. So many twist and turns! Thrilled from first minute to the last, such a surprising start!

David Fincher's typically outstanding grip for suspense and a trio of powerful performances make Zodiac a compelling crime thriller.

Based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Robert Graysmith. Zodiac tells the story of the manhunt for a notorious serial killer who called himself the "Zodiac" in and around the San Francisco Bay Area (America) during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Zodiac is a dark, slow paced thriller that will have you guessing over and over again where is the plot going, all with great performances from its cast and excellent direction from David Fincher

Almost ten years after seeing this picture for the first time in 2007, I still find that multiple viewing of Zodiac is never an exhaust. This is a criminally underrated movie of all time. It under performed at the box office and was utterly ignored at awards. It does not play out like any serial killer films with vivid horrifying scenes but rather paints the picture with a realistic depiction of how characters involved trying to solve the crime by meticulous investigation. One of Fincher's best films after The Social Network and Fight Club.

Verdict: Four stars out of Four (A)

Las mas de dos de metraje estan bien compensadas por la historia real sobre la angustiante caceria en pos de un asesino en serie. No pierda de vista al reparto.

you know it's a great movie when it's 2 hours and 42 minutes of mostly talking and you're not bored at any point in the movie. to say i was invested is an understatement. great cast, superb directing, and a very big story. After seeing this again, I realize that David Fincher is my second favorite director after Christopher Nolan (2 viewings)

Pretty crazy how Ironman and The Hulk working together with Donnie Darko couldn't manage to figure this one out.

A solid, intelligent thriller by Fincher that exemplifies quality filmmaking. Warm up the edge of your seat, cause that's where you'll be for the whole of this.

Zodiac is an extremely low-paced thriller, quite unexpected from director David Fincher, that can result to be frustrating at times.
With a little more speed this very talented cast would hsve menaged to deliver much more thril.

David Fincher always makes really well-made movies. The very techinal aspects of all his films are top-notch. The camera is very smooth, the colour palette is again very stylish, the score and soundtrack haunting and the acting is superb. David Fincher knows what he is doing. His films always suck in the audience even though not much is happening. This story for instance is based on the true story of a cartoonist getting obsessed with the Zodiac killing that took place in southern California in the late 60's and early 70's. When you start to create true stories, it gets harder to follow the classic Hollywood three-act structure. This film starts off very interesting with all the characters getting equal amount of screen-time and the creepy zodiac written letters begin to start coming in. Down the stretch, it starts to become a bit of a bore when the zodiac killer becomes absent in the story. While I can't really fault the filmmakers for this because this is a true story and the filmmakers were trying to depict the story as real as possible but it's something to take note of before you watch it. This is one of those films where many little clues are dropped here and there throughout the film and while many of them might fly under the radar or you may not remember all of them, they all come back at the end to make an impactful ending. Overall, this is a really well-made film. If you like David Fincher's other work like Gone Girl and the Social Network, I think you will enjoy this one.
