    A fact-based film of exceptional power.

    It's too cut-and-dried: You'll wish the movie were as salacious as it would have been if this were '90s Lifetime.

    Barr is suitably creepy as Chris and McCormack--while slightly miscast--turns in a solid performance. For true-crime buffs only.

    By the standards of Lifetime ripped-from-the-headlines movies, almost all of which aim to reduce viewers to a gasp of horror at some despicable villain, Romeo Killer plays like a documentary.

    As presented, it’s moderately suspenseful but also an awfully dry, unimaginative approach to the story, with McCormack’s personality and natural sense of humor completely lost in this straightforward cop role, and Davidovich burdened by Frankenstein makeup. Barr, at least, is convincing as the ladies man with a dark streak, however familiar that might be.
