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

A pretty routine police procedural with...a little bit of regional flavor.
October 20, 2011
Scenes do not always necessarily follow one another. I was sometimes unclear who some of the characters were.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

"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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.
October 11, 2011
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.
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/5.0

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
February 13, 2012
depressing characters slogging through a depressing story for a depressing movie
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
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 14, 2011
Long on style and short on coherent storytelling...

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.

The characters will be familiar to fans of police procedural shows and TV movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 21, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Nothing in this film sets your nerves a-tingling.
October 21, 2011
Merely an elongated version of any current crime show on television
