Texas Killing Fields Review

  • Excerpt: It’s hard to pinpoint who you’re supposed to like in Texas Killing Fields , a movie so ruthless, even the two leads can’t seem to squelch their attitudes between each other. Pimps, drug dealers, hookers, violent mothers, distressed teens, rapists, and CSI crews with egos make this clunker up. Apparently, that’s Texas, at least if you believe what you’re seeing.

Texas Killing Fields (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Though Mann’s devotion to the real life people who inspired her protagonists is admirable, it also makes for a dramatically inert movie watching experience. The Blu-ray doesn’t do much to enhance the experience. I think Mann’s got potential, but right now the best chance this movie has of being remembered is as a footnote in Jessica Chastain’s career if she goes on to accomplish the great things people are expecting from her.

Texas Killing Fields

High-Def Digest
18 January 2012
  • Conclusion: 'Texas Killing Fields' is a very middle-of-the-road thriller. Though the cast is strong, as presented, the plot isn't very compelling and the direction stumbles at times. The elements of a good film are all in here somewhere, they just don't come together. Video and audio quality are both solid with only some minor issues here and there. Extras are limited to a commentary track, but the discussion is worthwhile. The movie is mediocre and the disc itself is OK.

Texas Killing Fields

DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: Texas Killing Fields is the feature directorial debut of Ami Canaan Mann, who is the daughter of Michael Mann ( Heat , Collateral ). Normally, one might bury that lede, lest the charges of nepotism overshadow the result of her efforts, but the promotional materials have all but made that the banner headline, so what the hell.

Texas Killing Fields

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Television has made it hard for movies like Texas Killing Fields . A better-than-average police procedural rooted in the not-always-pretty world found at the edge of the Texas bayou, the film tells a tight, contained crime story, filling the edges with the shaggy details of police work and life on the underside of Texas City, Texas. Without The Wire and its like as a point of comparison, Texas Killing Fields might seem the natural heir to a gritty ’70s cop drama.
