      Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com The question is: WHO CARES? Rated: 1/4 Dec 9, 2022 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut This is mainly a rehash and regurgitation of the infamous legend with actor reenactments that would have the Robert Stack seal of approval. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 20, 2022 Full Review Robin Holabird Robin Holabird Ultimately, the movie does little more than add to the growing pile of Cooper memorabilia, relying on the lure an unsolved mystery. Dec 17, 2022 Full Review Lael Loewenstein FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) The filmmaker undercuts the film's persuasiveness with tons of reenactments. Dec 13, 2022 Full Review Alan Zilberman Spectrum Culture It mixes docudrama and documentary to give one theory about the hijacker’s identity. At least, that’s the one way of looking at it. Another, more accurate way is that this film has no credibility from the start, and barely any entertainment value to boot. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 13, 2022 Full Review Tony Medley The Larchmont Chronicle Is he really the fugitive DB Cooper? For people old enough to have lived through the story of his hijacking a plane in 1971, bailing out and disappearing, that dominated the headlines for several weeks, if not months, it’s an interesting supposition.

      shawn h I've always been intrigued by the story of the infamous D.B. Cooper skyjacking and mystery of his getaway or demise. I was really excited to watch this "mockumentary" but learned quickly that it was trash. I have to say that Rodney Bonnifield reminds me of an old chronic BS artist that I work with. The scripted story that overlays Bonnifield's story is rubbish and unbelievable as well. I wish I could get my 5 dollars back that I paid to rent this chunk of cr*p. Don't waste your time and money. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Jennifer H Absolutely intriguing! This documentary captures the many questions we STILL ASK TO THIS DAY surrounding the infamous DB Cooper. I love how the film intertwined fiction into this documentary. It was a brilliant mix to give the audience a glimpse into what possibly went down back in 1971 paired with a fascinating documentary twist of current day Rodney Bonnifield claiming to be DB Cooper. I was hooked on hearing everything Rodney Bonnifield had to say! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/13/22 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
