The police intelligence couldn't be more basic--oh, really, do you think those sleazy dudes changed the license plate on their car?
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Scenes do not always necessarily follow one another. I was sometimes unclear who some of the characters were.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 19, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 17, 2011
A two-pronged police procedural whose misdirection can't disguise its essential lack of juice..feels half-baked and half-hearted.
October 16, 2011
The atmosphere of imminent evil is like that in Mann Sr's masterly Manhunter, and there are brilliantly staged, edgily unexpected action sequences.
October 14, 2011
Mostly, we see characters glancing significantly toward one another or arguing about things that don't matter all that much in the outcome, and there is one oh-so-clever red herring.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.5/10
October 14, 2011
An assured, moody police procedural rendered with rich cinematography.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
October 14, 2011
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...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 14, 2011
Dripping in gothic atmosphere, the only problem is it's all too easy to guess who did what.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 13, 2011
A competent film but only marginally better than typical TV fare.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 13, 2011
Takes its suspense for granted, which leaves it weak where it should be at its most chilling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 13, 2011
Like the Texas City killer's plans, something's gone terribly wrong.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 13, 2011
Forget about murder: this moody cop thriller is guilty of a more heinous offence - criminal negligence of its dream-team cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 13, 2011
It's all just shorthand and clichés from other cop movies - the moral avenger, the workaholic loner.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 13, 2011
It might be unfair to read an artist's work on the basis of her lineage, but Ami Canaan Mann is asking for it.
October 13, 2011
A solid police procedural with strong performances from its four main actors.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 13, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 12, 2011
Mann is definitely one to watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 11, 2011
As solid Saturday night entertainment goes, this is a consistently compelling, enjoyably old school potboiler.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
