    Despite it's chase scene and ambush scene. Texas Killing Fields is dead. It suffer uneven pacing, confused script, to many plothole and bad acting from its stellar cast.

    While we are watching Texas Killing Fields, our mood keeps changing in a very strange, uncontrollable way. We are bored, interested, bored, surprised, and unfortunately, bored again. Maybe this is the fault of clumsy directing, maybe of annoyingly simplified screenplay... and maybe of both of them.

    Dull, Dull, Dull. A Terrific waste of time. Terrible plodding storyline that failed to deliver on any front. The movie ended with me wondering what the point of it all was.

    Michael Mann was one of the producers, and his daughter Ami Canaan Mann directed; a couple more Manns fill out the credits, which makes you wonder why they couldn't just have a nice picnic and softball game at a state park somewhere.

    The story simply doesn't stand up, with its combination of well-worn plot elements and confusing red herrings -- or maybe they're just details that don't add up.

    Texas Killing Fields begins along the lines of a police procedural and might have been perfectly absorbing if it had played by the rules: strict logic, attention to detail, reference to technical police work. Unfortunately, the movie often seems to stray from such discipline.
