Lee Malvo (Tequan Richmond) is a 17 year old boy living in Antigua. His mother has abandoned him and he is living on the streets. An American by the name of John Allen Muhammad (Isaiah Washington) takes the boy in. John was the parental figure that he never had. In John, he found the guidance and caring that he never had felt before.
John was a complicated man. He was angry as hell over the breakup of his marriage. He hated what life had given him. John had so much pent up rage that it even scared Lee but he learned to live with it. John would force Lee to do some really horrible things to show his allegiance to him. John would eventually teach Lee how to shoot. When John felt the time was right he and Lee would head east and the world would later know them as "The Beltway Snipers".
This movie is a behind the scenes look at what it takes to make a serial killer. It shows the breakdown of the human being to make him a killing machine and someone who would follow orders. This look at the wave of terror these two men did is something almost out of a horror movie.
Director Alexandre Moors does an excellent job with this film and shows the audience just how screwed up these two figures were. This is a movie that if you can stomach the psychological thriller at it's purest. Then this is a movie for you.
