Apple TV+ recently expanded its library of true crime series with a brilliant addition – Black Bird, a haunting drama that depicts the true story of Jimmy Keene and serial killer Larry Hall. The limited miniseries is based on Keene’s harrowing memoir In with the Devil: A fallen hero, a serial killer and a dangerous bargain for redemption.

The ongoing series about the streamer picks up the story at the time when Keene was a star football player in high school, but ended up getting entangled in drug dealing and was sentenced to ten years in prison.

Most reviews have pointed out how the excellent performances further enhance the impressive adaptation of the true story. Amanda Whiting by Independent especially loved Taron Egerton as Jimmy Keene as he gives “an astonishingly consistent performance.” “A muscular and strikingly tanned Egerton plays Jimmy with a nasal twang and a superiority complex that fits like an expensive suit.”

“This is a tense crime story told with enormous confidence and care – but it’s the performances, particularly from Paul Walter Hauser and Ray Liotta, that really make Black Bird sing,” writes John Nugent, Empire Magazine.
