4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: Texas Killing Fields [DVD] (DVD)
This film has attracted so many bad reviews bit I really enjoyed it. It is slow and a little complicated but worth sticking with. The story follows two detectives in the industrial city of Texas City investigating the murders of young women in the killing fields.
Sam Worthington plays the religious and conscientious one who wants to help the county police with their search for a pair of serial killers whilst Jeffery Dean Morgan plays the more aggressive partner who wants to stick to their own case involving two vicious pimps kidnapping young girls. Connecting the two cases is Chloe Moretz as a young girl from an abusive family who is somehow connected. The locations are moody and the soundtrack even moodier and yes you have to pay attention to follow the strands of the story. One reviewer criticised the pimp storyline for being left incomplete, so one of them got away, it happens. Not all polce work is neat and tidy and this film reflects that well. One scene in particular when Morgan tries to arrest the pimps is an excellent portrayal of how the best laid plans go awry.
If you enjoyed 'In the Electric Mist' and 'Surveillance' then you'll probably enjoy this.

You are quite right, sometimes the bad guys do get away. Such as life. My gripe about the pimp regards how inconsequential the plot device was to the film as a whole. Not so much a red herring but a waste of time. The film made a mockery of the actual cases involving the killing fields. Just my opinion, the film could have been so much better.

Good Summary of the film.

btw, Sam Worthington was Bad Cop & Jeffery Dean Morgan was the Good Cop.

You have both actors mixed up, Worthington is the 'stick to our patch' guy, Morgan the religious type - other than that I would say your review is fair but as I'd say with the other reviewers don't give spoilers away.
