Pretty good. Actually it was more OK
19 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The understanding of what may have been going through Jeffery Dahmer's head and made him what he is.

No sparks flew from the screen as I watched the film. At first its slow temple was interesting,but the movie got less interesting as time past. By the end I was dozing off like it lost me.

The life of Dahmer was petty normal if you really thing about it. I think that's the point of the movie and it made their point a little too clear.

I got to the point and nothing much more.
