TEXAS KILLING FIELDS (MA)
Stars: Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan Director: Ami Canaan Mann Available: Now on DVD and BD Nothing kills a thriller like routine film making and this is a prime example of relying too heavily on the genre to do the hard work for you. A police procedure flick that’s inspired by a real case, it follows a couple of Texas City detectives as they try to catch a sadistic killer who dumps his victims in a local marsh and enjoys taunting the cops with his crimes. The general story and characters are instantly recognisable. While the atmosphere promises chills, there’s really none as it lacks some vision overall.
