    Raymonde and Soffer are so good they deserve Emmy noms.

    Viewers who were glued to the trial may note a misplaced detail here and there, but in general they are likely to find this 87-minute movie a solid summation of Arias’ disintegration.

    Lifetime's take on the ripped-from-the-headlines Jodi Arias murder trial suffers from cheesy writing and an uncharismatic lead performance from Jesse Lee Soffer. [21 Jun 2013, p.60]

    Yes, Arias (Tania Raymonde), comes off as a narcissistic, sexually manipulative psycho, but because we never get a convincing take on Alexander (Jesse Lee Soffer), the film is confusing.

    Mostly, it feels like a big missed opportunity.

    Any guilty-pleasure potential is spoiled by the unsettling aftertaste of a real person losing his life to make the movie possible.

    Lifetime chose to tell a by-the-numbers tale of passion gone wrong rather than the potentially compelling (if lurid) courtroom story that played out on news channels for weeks earlier this year.

    This is an entertaining, well-directed and well-acted made for TV movie with special mention going to Tania Raymonde as Jodi Arias. HavingThis is an entertaining, well-directed and well-acted made for TV movie with special mention going to Tania Raymonde as Jodi Arias. Having following the trial, I believe it is a fair representation of the both Jodi Arias and Travis Alexander as it doesn't fall in the trap of depicting Jodi as being all evil and Travis as saintly.

The trial itself was much more riveting than this film. It felt as though the movie was rushed to TV since so little time was spent on the post-arrest story. This story would have been better served as miniseries or at very least a two-parter. The acting was quite good but this was not enough to raise this TV movie above average. Collapse
