"Ted Bundy: Sleeping with the Assassin" is a biographical story of the American serial killer Ted Bundy , developed from the point of view of his girlfriend Liz Kendall , and which represents how his relationship with him was while Bundy was prosecuted and accused of various murders of women in 7 states of the United States between 1974 and 1978.
Although it was thought that this film would focus mainly on the crimes committed by Bundy , it focuses much more on the relationship between Liz (Lily Collins) and Ted (Zac Efron) , leaving somewhat cruel and terrible crimes he committed , romanticizing and idealizing at some point the character played by Zac Efron, and emphasizing the charm and charisma that the murderer had, and which he used to carry out the murders , and then, try to convince a jury and the public Of his innocence. Many critics have crossed out the film of little serious, since it does not strongly portray the erratic and vile behavior that Bundy had, nor the seriousness and crudeness of his acts, idealizing man and leaving in the background the magnitude of his acts.
However, Zac Efron's performance is refreshing and quite good , something new in his career, because we started watching it in teenage movies, then in romantic comedies and later in crazy comedies, but now he stands out in the dramatic genre with a decent performance .
Ted Bundy's history has been fascinating for many decades in the United States, as has been their most popular criminals, however, this is not the right film to get to know its history or the root of everything that he committed; If that is what you are looking for, it is better to see "Conversations with Assassins: Ted Bundy Tapes" on Netflix , and if you are looking for something more sweetened, you will have no problem with giving this movie a chance that was originally released on the platform of Netflix for the United States , but that comes to the big screen in our country.
The ratings and reviews of the film are somewhat found , because it has something that makes you enjoy it, but it also leaves you with the feeling that something has been missing to fully cover the story of Ted Bundy as the ruthless , intelligent and charismatic killer Many say it was.
"Ted Bundy: Sleeping with the Assassin" is available in all cinemas beginning July 25 .
