Texas Killing Fields

JOY REVIEW

Texas Killing Fields is apparently based on a more or less true story. It stars Sam Worthington as a local cop, who gets assisted by a big city New York cop who is haunted by overhearing a death of a young woman that he couldn’t save. Chloe Grace Moretz, who is from Kick Ass, is in this movie playing a young woman. This is a really confusing and very bloody movie. The idea is that young women keep turning up in this bog in Texas, and there is a huge red herring, which really was confusing to me. The perpetrators start targeting the cops and playing a cat and mouse game. This is produced by Michael Mann and his daughter is the director of it. My guess is that had she not had a famous father, it probably wouldn’t have gotten done. It is just very confusing and very dark, but there are some bright moments in it, including Sam Worthington who is just terrific in this. But it is a really grisly, confusing, dark movie. Two stars.
