Blue Caprice (2013) Rated R

A boy is drawn to America and a dangerous father figure, inspired by the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks. Starring Tequan Richmond, April Yvette Thompson, and Isaiah Washington.

This film tells the story of Lee Malvo and John Allen Muhammad, how they met, how they developed the warped surrogate father-son relationship, and how they became deadly snipers. The film moves slowly and coldly as they train to kill. It is more of a dramatization rather than based on facts. Richmond and Washington give great performances as the snipers, and the cinematography is brilliant. The one drawback to the movie is that it just doesn’t pull you in. It’s a slow, cold build but leaves you with an anticlimax. This film isn’t worth a watch.
