But as time goes on, Finkel realizes how dangerous Longo really is.

Critics Consensus: James Franco and Jonah Hill make a watchable pair, but True Story loses their performances -- and the viewer's interest -- in a muddled movie that bungles its fact-based tale.
Gripping, disturbing drama based on real murders.
