As they pursue the case, the two men become increasingly involved in the life of Anne Slinger (Chloe Moretz), a young woman from a deprived background whose fate seems to be linked to the killings. Jessica Chastain and Stephen Graham co-star.

Some poorer reviews nearly put me off this film - don't despair.
This is a well acted and sometimes pretty scary thriller. The storyline develops well and the killing fields of texas are an added assett. I'd never heard about this area of the USA and it brings to mind the Bayou and other less-salubrious cultures of the country.
A good, intelligent and fast moving film which is well worth watching.

Texas Killing Fields is directed by Ami Canaan Mann and written by Don Ferrarone. It stars Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jessica Chastain, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jason Clarke, Annabeth Gish and Stephen Graham. Music is by Dickon Hinchliffe and cinematography by Stuart Dryburgh. Film is based around real events involving the many murders of women whose bodies have been found in a desolate area of road and wasteland between Houston and Galveston.

Ami Canaan Mann is the daughter of Michael Mann, one of the masters of modern day crime story movies, so it’s not very surprising to see Ami, for her sophomore production, venture into murky waters. Texas Killing Fields is a bayou noir, where although the title hints at human devastation unbound, it’s actually a slow burning skin itcher more concerned with the people investigating crime than that of the perpetrators. How the sorry events affect all who come in to contact with the crimes at the film’s core, is what drives Texas Killing Fields on. Sadly the screenplay takes on board too much and nearly derails an otherwise very good movie.

If it comes down to atmosphere and technical smarts in achieving such? Then this is one of the finest of recent times. There’s a constant sense of broody foreboding throughout, the haunting landscapes are all gnarly and spectre like, the whole area literally stinks of death and misery. Even when the story is away from the fields of the title, there’s a mood of despair filtering out from Mann and Dryburgh’s lenses, the hot Texas weather draining every ounce of sweat from the emotionally troubled detectives. All of the atmosphere is helped considerably by Hinchliffe’s music, which piggybacks the misery with ominous bluesy tones.

This is a truly brilliant film, it is based loosely on the case of women who were picked up in the I-45 and dumped in an oil field in League City Texas. It opens out at a crime scene where a girl's body has been found the two homicide detectives turn up to secure the crime scene. Brian Heigh played by Jeffery Dean Morgan (`Watchmen') he prays over her, his partner is less close to god and decidedly the bad cop of the pairing. He is Mike Souther (Sam Worthington), he is divorced from Detective Pam Stall (Jessica Chastain) who works in the adjoining jurisdiction and seems to rely quite heavily on their support. Only she has a corpse too, and then they find that strangled phone calls are being made from the bayou area; a place known as the Killing Fields.

As the suspects mount so does the body count. The personal riffs in all of the players lives often get in the way and there are so many ambiguous characters that you are kept guessing for a time. We also have child drug addicts, pimps and some trailer trash low life that all add to the mix. There are moments that are truly scary and not a single performance is in the foothills of bad. Jeffrey Dean Morgan does a magnificent job of the Catholic racked with guilt trying to do good in a very bad world and finally cracking in an absolutely convincing way.

The music sounded very Tindersticks and actually is in the form of erstwhile member Dickon Hinchliffe, and as expected is bloody marvellous and gets the atmosphere smack on. The framing of shots is superb and the pace is perfectly timed to keep the tension up without giving you the vapours. This was supposed to be directed by Slumdog tedium maker Danny Boyle, but he dropped out saying it was too dark to ever be made.

The film opens with the over used phrase, "Inspired by true events." Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan play two detectives in Texas City, Texas. They are investigating a murder of a young female while having to take care of domestic cases as a subplot. Jessica Chastain (The Help) plays CSI Det. Pam Stall. She is the ex-wife of Sam Worthington and investigating a disappearance in the "Killing Field." She requests the assistance of our two Texas City detectives who initially refuse because it is out of their jurisdiction. She is a "Dirty Harriet" type. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is from New York and plays the "good cop" as opposed to Worthington's "bad cop" role. Later we see their roles reverse. There has been 50 unsolved murders involving the Killing Field. Once a girl goes missing there, they are never found alive.

Chloë Grace Moretz plays a young troubled teen, taken in by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. When the killer decides to play a cat and mouse game with the cops, Chloë Grace Moretz becomes a missing pawn. The acting was excellent, even Worthington who I don't normally like. I enjoyed the steel guitar soundtrack. The plot lacked a good twist and needed a little more depth. If you enjoy a police crime drama, check it out. As a mystery... there are not enough characters for that.

F-bomb, no sex or nudity. Adult sex talk.
