Movie Reviews

Interesting but not impartial
Erin Esposito | Rochester, New York | 07/12/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When I first discovered that Dean Cain was cast to play Scott Peterson, I got goosebumps all over because of the uncanny resemblance of the two men. While the movie is good and interesting, it is far from being impartial. It focuses too much on Scott Peterson and every little thing that pertained to him (his actions, behavior, etc.). I believe that all people have the right to a fair trial and to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. This movie has Scott Peterson walking around with "GUILTY" written all over him. Hypothetically speaking, what if the Laci Peterson murder was something that was similar to the Dr. Sam Sheppard case? Don't get me wrong here - I have strong feelings about the Peterson case and will freely admit that I think Scott had a major role in Laci's death, however I do believe that the justice system needs to be utilized in the appropriate manner.The movie is mostly about Scott Peterson more than it is about Laci. Nevertheless, it is an interesting movie to watch."
Based on a true story

"Some of the facts were a little off. And Amber could have been cast better. The most powerful performance was of course Dean Cain. And a close second was played by Lacys Blond best friend. I started crying when she had to explain to her husband that she saw Amy go into the house with the police to search for the clothes Lacy was wearing the night of the haircut. "This is specific Tommy, Those clothes are in the bay with her" HEAVY"
Pretty Good, Could Have Been Better
J. McAndrew | USA | 10/18/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Dean Cain was very good in his role of Scott Peterson, portraying his selfishness, his neurotic sense of self-control and his sociopathic disregard for his wife Laci.

I think the movie could have been stronger in several ways. the character of Laci could have been developed to a greater degree giving the viewers more of a feel for the full tragedy of her death. Laci's parents also lacked a completeness. They were too dumbed down for the lowest common denominator TV watchers.

Amber Frey's portrayal was good, but I wish they would have shown more about how she and Scott first met and how he managed to never mention his wife. Peterson was portrayed very well as a slimey manipulator with more love of his orgasms than other people who get in the ways of his plans.

Great Accurate movie and portrayal
Fern Smlka | 04/10/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I watch this movie when the Scott Peterson trial first started. I thought it was a very good and acurate portrayal of this whole case and story. Dean Caine was excellent as Scott Peterson. Five months later we all found out the worst Scott was guilty. However, the good news came a month later when the jury sentenced him to death and even more good news came when the judge confirmed it. I was so happy. Bye Bye Scotty."
