This crime thriller stars Sam Worthington (Detective Mike
Souder) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Detective Brian Heigh) in this rather
predictable film about a heinous serial killer with a rap sheet of over
60 victims. It's not a bad film per se but it's not the most original
crime thriller either. Even so, it's still worth a gander if you're bored or a
The main protagonists of the film are Souder and Heigh,
two detectives who become embroiled in the serial killers game as they
are dragged over the border into Texas investigating his crimes in the
wastelands surrounding the Gulf Coast refineries. Unfortunately this is
not their jurisdiction which causes a problem. As they are drawn deeper into
Texas, they are soon made known to the killer who begins
to play a game of cluedo with them as he leaves a trail of evidence. And
what better way to change his memorandum by involving these detectives!
Regrettably for the locals, the killer kidnaps one of
their own, a girl by the name Anne (Chloe Grace Moretz) who is used to lure the officers into his trap. With a rather predictable
plot which goes through the motions, it still throws a few curve balls
into the story, even though you're just itching to spoil the ending. The
best part of Texas Killing Fields was definitely Jeffrey Dean Morgan as
Brian Heigh who definitely lent credibility to the story and of course
the delightful and talented Chloe Grace Moretz.
All in all, it's a fun movie but don't
expect anything that unique!
