Texas Killing Fields Reviews

Deadspin

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

Ebert Presents At The Movies

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

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

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

Like the Texas City killer's plans, something's gone terribly wrong.

On more than one occasion, scenes just don't seem to fit right, as if an editing-room scuffle had left some crucial connective tissue on the floor.

The only notable element of this police procedural is that director Ami Canaan Mann, daughter of filmmaker Michael Mann ("Heat," "Collateral"), who produced here, appreciates dad's esthetic but can't replicate it.

Forget about murder: this moody cop thriller is guilty of a more heinous offence - criminal negligence of its dream-team cast.

It might be unfair to read an artist's work on the basis of her lineage, but Ami Canaan Mann is asking for it.

Director Mann does a fine job in presenting a bleak, matter-of-fact police procedural TV pilot. Only problem is, Texas Killing Fields was not made for television.

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

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

It's all just shorthand and clichés from other cop movies - the moral avenger, the workaholic loner.

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.

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.
