Lonely Hearts (2006)
Germany / English
"Love can be murder. "Based on the true story, two homicide detectives track Martha Beck and Raymond Martinez Fernandez, a murderous pair known as the "Lonely Hearts Killers" who lured their victims through the personals.
Hard to find anything to dislike about this thriller based on a true
story, and hard not to like the actors and the way this was put
together, but it felt a little like the talent deserved a more
challenging script - or maybe the fact it was based on a true story
meant it lacked the dramatic understructure that a work of fiction
would have provided. John Travolta is a fine actor, able to create a
part unselfconsciously and make it wholly believable; Salma Hayek was
maybe miscast but carried it well and the supporting actors did well.
It is certainly worth watching - I just wished it had been allowed to
be a bit bigger given the ensemble and their talents.
