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.

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.

Reduces the police procedural to its bare essentials.

Although it's interesting to see this type of rural life under siege, it's the subject matter which the director should have had grabbed by the throat, not vulnerable women.

Observer [UK]

The atmosphere of imminent evil is like that in Mann Sr's masterly Manhunter, and there are brilliantly staged, edgily unexpected action sequences.

An assured, moody police procedural rendered with rich cinematography.

Dripping in gothic atmosphere, the only problem is it's all too easy to guess who did what.

A solid police procedural with strong performances from its four main actors.

We get to know the detectives at the film's core, how they work, what drives them, and the place they're sworn to protect. And then the film ends after telling only one story, which seems kind of odd these days.

Mann is definitely one to watch.

As solid Saturday night entertainment goes, this is a consistently compelling, enjoyably old school potboiler.

The identity of the villain is beside the point; he-she-it might as well have a Looney Tunes-ish neon arrow emblazoned KILLER! pointing at their noggin. What matters more is the thick sense of atmosphere that Mann and her collaborators conjure.

The plot is a chaos of underdeveloped relationships and frayed loose ends, but every so often, Mann does something so right that it makes this seem less a matter of narrative disorganization than a commentary on the anarchy intrinsic to any investigation.

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

"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
