Solid, well-acted crime story about the hunt for San Francisco's so-called Zodiac killer who terrorized the region beginning in the late 1960's, focusing on an investigative reporter (Robert Downey Jr.) and cartoonist (Jake Gyllenhaal) at the San Francisco Chronicle and two police detectives (Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Edwards) whose obsession with catching the killer wreaks havoc on their personal lives. Director David Fincher handles the murders, horrific though they are, with admirable restraint and minimal on-screen gore and though the plot, which spans a couple of decades, is at times complex, the nearly three-hour film holds one's interest. Rough and crude language and profanity, brutal -- though brief and nongraphic -- shootings and stabbings, a vulgar gesture, alcohol and drug use, reference to child molestation and fleeting images of porn magazines. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
