It was shame that the movie focused on the trial part and on that particular single mother only. This movie could've been something more thrilling and disturbingly eye catching at the same time, as in good crime movie, but instead they chose safe and mediocre path. To be frank the trial part wasn't even that good either.It appears this movie is just about mimicking the actual people who were involved in that moment. Which means it didn't have to be a movie. Documentary version would've been much better. When movie loses to documentary, it simply means it was boring.

This movie had such potential, but failed to fulfill any of it.It's a real shame because the costumes, sets and locations were all fantastic. It was shot nicely. The soundtrack was okay, but could've been better I guess. The acting was great. I think given better material Zac Efron could've done great things with this role. He certainly looked the part and he did well with what he had; the problem is he didn't have a whole lot to work with.I think the main issue is it lacked a clear focus. Whose story was it? It wasn't Liz's, it wasn't Bundy's, it wasn't Carol Anne's, it wasn't even any of the victim's stories. It just waffled on showing a few of the moments/facts we already knew.If you're going to give a movie a ridiculously long title like "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" then you kind of need to show some wicked, evil, and vile acts at some point in the movie. Okay, so I get that it's not considered acceptable to glorify the crimes of serial killers. I agree with this, but you certainly shouldn't try to make the audience sympathise with them while barely mentioning their numerous victims and the families of those victims. That list of names slapped on the end just before the credits made me cringe. Was that all the recognition these innocent victims deserved?For me, the disappointment comes down to the fact that this movie was about one of the most prolific killers of all time and his crimes weren't depicted at all, nor were the stories of his victims. If you watched this movie, not knowing anything about Bundy, you certainly wouldn't leave it thinking about just how terrible his "extremely wicked, shockingly evil, and vile" acts were. You wouldn't feel the immense loss he caused. I'm really not sure what you'd take away from it. Maybe you just be confused as I was.Very poorly executed which I guess comes down to a poor screenplay.
Even if the main particularity of Ted Bundy is indisputably a disconcerting desire for exceptionally barbaric murders, the movie focuses on an unusual seduction ability thanks to a charismatic eloquence and an extraordinary IQ, and then two women who loved him, Liz Kendall and Carole Anne Boone. Indeed, the film does not really deal with the police investigation and modestly eludes the macabre scenes of crime, but, on the contrary, it highlights the duality of the monster: an odd mix of a successful womanizer and an accomplished serial killer, of Casanova and Jack the ripper. Thus, the film completely succeeds in showing, during the second half, a pathetic seducer of any individual within his tiny environment (the journalists, the jurors, the judge, the audience, ...), able to arrogantly smile like a politician during an election campaign, and devoid of any respect for the victims. This guy will literally sent chills up your spine. The film sadly ends with an exhaustive list of known victims, and as many bruised families.
Great cast, especially Zac Efron unjustly cataloged with movies for decerebrated teenage girls, and excellently supported by Lily Collins, Kaya Scodelario, Angela Sarafyan. The atmosphere of the 70s is faithfully transcribed, with a neat photography.
