Review: Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story

Romeo Killer Stands Above Typical True-Crime Lifetime Movies
New York Daily News

Eric McCormack, Matt Barr
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 (Lifetime - Saturday, 8pm), plays like a documentary.

That doesn’t mean Porco (Matt Barr) comes across as someone we like, or someone we think got railroaded.

He’s oily and arrogant. The detective who nails him, Joe Sullivan (Eric McCormack), says Porco thinks he’s better than everyone else and can fool everyone else, and that’s true.
