The film doesn't really go anywhere or establish any narrative sense, which is problem, since it's ostensibly a police procedural.

I know many people don't like Sam Worthington and I'm one of them. Worthington is trying to prove that he's not the one-dimensional actor that we all think he is.

"Texas Killing Fields" is nothing more than an average crime thriller with some better-than-average suspense. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Don Ferrarone's script could have used one more revision for sequential flow, character depth and back-story clarity. But there's promise for Ms. Mann.

A pretty routine police procedural with...a little bit of regional flavor.

works sporadically, but never consistently, and ends up feeling much lighter and more forgettable than its "inspired by true events" tagline would seem to merit
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Mann Jr shows plenty of promise in a film that doesn't tarnish the family name. But hindered by niggling flaws, it hardly revolutionises an over-saturated genre.

Despite the jumbled plot and structural problems, the shady characters and gritty settings compensate.

A procedural without structure. It's a mood piece with no definable mood. It's a thriller without clear villains or even threats.

Post-Silence of the Lambs and Se7en, there's no reason for the level of suspense to be commensurate with a first season episode of C.S.I. New York.

Merely an elongated version of any current crime show on television

Just uses a spooky atmosphere and fractured style to disguise the fact that it's actually covering quite familiar territory.

The story simply doesn't stand up, with its combination of well-worn plot elements and confusing red herrings -- or maybe they're just details that don't add up.

[A] southern-fried rehash of David Fincher's Seven.

The police intelligence couldn't be more basic--oh, really, do you think those sleazy dudes changed the license plate on their car?

Scenes do not always necessarily follow one another. I was sometimes unclear who some of the characters were.
