5.0 out of 5 stars Warner took over Paramount's loss. Feb. 9 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A few weeks back, the only way you could buy Zodiac on blu-ray was by laying down an easy $70 for Paramount's 2009 out of print edition. Now, thanks to Warner, the film's back on shelves with a much lower price tag. Co-productions sometimes work great and this is the case here. Do not fear of finding a different cover than before, Warner only re-printed the exact same set and the only real difference is a sticker on the plastic sleeve over the bar code.

The film itself is a masterpiece. It's a superb analysis of obsession in just about every character the picture finds, times passing by and much more themes than can be listed. Jake Gylenhaal is a wonderful actor cast as the Zodiac-obsessed cartoonist Robert Graysmith, surrounded by top-talents of Robert Downey Jr., Mark Rufallo, Brian Cox, Chloë Sevigny and more. The film itself takes its time to explore the true events and Fincher's eye for detail (visual AND narrative) makes for a very eerie film. So much so that I suspect even the actual survivors may have a hard time watching it. After Seven, The Game and Fight Club, you can finally add Zodiac on your blu-ray shelf without killing your wallet first.

In terms of audio and video qualities, the main soundtrack seems a bit dull, the only real flat point on this edition. Background action sometimes overwhelms the characters speaking, which is the main problem here. As far as video presentation is concerned, it was flawless even for a 2007 film. The colors, textures and many details are spotless, even though I'm far from a professional, it suited my tastes from frame 1 to final credits.

Special features, here we go: Warner thought it good to include ALL of the second disc again, which is another good idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is the Zodiac Speaking... June 27 2013
By keefsey TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've been looking for this movie for quite a while and I was glad to see it so cheap on Amazon.

Includes commentary tracks as well if that is your thing!

Great cast including Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr. and John Carroll Lynch.

Based on the book by Robert Graysmith, who detailed the timeline and events of the killer known as the Zodiac who was a serial killer in the San Francisco area in the 1970's

I'm so glad they released this film again, as it was taken off print for a while. One the best film of the 2000's gets a very nice blu ray treatment! Kudos to Amazon for the fast shipping!

4.0 out of 5 stars Zodiac Director's Cut Blu ray Aug. 7 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I wanted to get this movie for some time now as the reviews were consistently good.
When the price came down to a reasonable level I bought it.
Just recently watched it and enjoyed it very much.
The acting was good and the story stayed close enough to what really happened.
As people know the Zodiac was never brought to trial but one suspect who died in the early nineties was show cased in the movie.
I like the way in the closing credits where it tells what happened to the characters in real life.
That's a nice touch.

Excellent movie. I was intrigued by the story and how it would relate to the findings in the Black Dahlia Avenger II which closes the door on who committed the crimes that swept the nation over many decades.

2.0 out of 5 stars I am the Zodiac Feb. 23 2014
Lately I've been on a bit of a serial killer spree, checking out movies about/based on real-life serial killers and the times they were active.

So I was fully expecting to be blown away by "Zodiac," David Fincher's account of the Zodiac Killer (whom I had never heard of before). But Fincher's talents are drowned in a sea of minutial facts here, leading to an interesting but not very compelling narrative about a cartoonist who becomes obsessed with catching a serial killer. It doesn't help that most of the best actors are wasted.

In 1969, San Francisco Chronicle began receiving encrypted letters from a serial killer who called himself Zodiac, taking credit for past murders and mentioning his plans for future kills. Robert Graysmith (Jake Gyllenhaal) is only a political cartoonist, but his knack for puzzles allows him to figure out the code that Zodiac is using. Despite not being taken seriously by his fellows, crime writer Paul Avery (Robert Downey, Jr.) begins to listen to his theories.

After three more killings, police detective Dave Toschi (Mark Ruffalo) is put on the case, and Zodiac begins threatening Avery, and even calls a celebrity lawyer on the radio. Then... he vanishes without a trace. But Graysmith remains obsessed with Zodiac's identity -- and when the killings and phantom calls begin again some years later, he contacts Toschi in hopes of finally identifying the serial killer.

David Fincher is an absolutely brilliant director, and he's clearly trying to do his best with this movie. But his talents seem to be squandered in this story, partly because it seems to rely so much on facts and a sense of realism. He is to be admired for sticking mostly to Graysmith's facts rather than wildly sensationalizing them...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best dramatisation on the subject Dec 21 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Probably the best, if not THE best, movie about the Zodiac killer. Mysterious & intriguing. They did several films on the subject that are not to neglect, but I really think this one has its own particular way to present it, using the journalistic approached, an option never really explored in the pass in my opinion. Even if we mostly know how the story ends; worths giving it a try sincerely.
