The characters will be familiar to fans of police procedural shows and TV movies.

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.

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

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.

Long on style and short on coherent storytelling...

... Texas Killing Fields is a must-see.

A downbeat but atmospheric police-procedural thriller, that works in parts but not as a whole because of serious plot holes making it incoherent.

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.

depressing characters slogging through a depressing story for a depressing movie

Texas Killing Fields is just another dull, morally mixed-up serial-killer movie.

"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.
January 4, 2012
A pretty routine police procedural with...a little bit of regional flavor.
November 2, 2011
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
October 29, 2011
Overall, Texas Killing Fields manages to be one of the more smarter and engaging crime procedurals released as of late and shows promise of an engaging filmmaker on the rise in Mann.

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.
October 21, 2011
A procedural without structure. It's a mood piece with no definable mood. It's a thriller without clear villains or even threats.
