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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

Had to watch it a few times before I could understand what the actors were saying, because of their Texas accents (I'm English, - also watched with subtitles), but it was worth it... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
