"Most disappointing movie I've ever seen in my life. Story telling, acting, directing- its just the wonder of the worst that movie can be.
I'm feeling guilty of not being able to give it 0 star."
One of the Worst Independent Films I've Seen in Years

"D.C. Sniper is a dramatization loosely based on the story of John Allen Muhammad and the Beltway sniper attacks, with an emphasis on Muhammad's motives and alleged indoctrination of Lee Malvo.
There are only two noteworthy aspects of this film. One is the portrayal of John Allen Muhammad by experienced actor Ken Foree, and the other is achieving a better understanding of Muhammad's motives. But even scenes involving motive need to be taken with a grain of salt, since so much of film was fabricated for dramatic effect.
Director Ulli Lommel previously shot a number of straight to video serial killer flicks, but this movie looked like a film school project. Most of the D.C. footage used in the movie was literally shot by handheld camera on the second floor of a tour bus; you can even make out other tourists in the window reflections. Even when shooting exterior shots in area parks, the camera work is completely shaky, as well as scenes shot from moving cars. All of the cinematography is weak, the dialogue drags on, and the film's score is entirely overdramatic.
The movie revolves around a fictional government agent, on the hunt for the D.C. sniper. The character has virtually no dialogue throughout the film, as he simply narrates his scene like a 70's detective movie. The film loses most of its credibility with the introduction of a subplot involving the agent's daughter, who begins filming pornography in California. Apparently knowing this isn't enough, as the agent feels compelled to watch a nude video of his daughter online. It is easily one of the most bizarre and pointless story angles ever included in film, like something out of a Tommy Wiseau movie. The movie concludes with the agent luckily spotting Muhammad's vehicle and arresting the two killers, which isn't how the duo were actually caught.
The only reason why I'm giving this movie two stars instead of one, is because Ken Foree did a solid acting job. Aside from watching Foree's monologues, this movie is a complete waste of time."
