This movie was a total shock for me! I read some of the reviews, and expected it to be a throw away. This movie is inspired film making. The acting is great. Everybody fits their part. The actors make their characters totally believeable.
Writing and directing are really inspired. This movie is NOT fact based, it is absorbing as a serial killer thriller however.

The film opens with the over used phrase, "Inspired by true events." Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan play two detectives in Texas City, Texas. They are investigating a murder of a young female while having to take care of domestic cases as a subplot. Jessica Chastain (The Help) plays CSI Det. Pam Stall. She is the ex-wife of Sam Worthington and investigating a disappearance in the "Killing Field." She requests the assistance of our two Texas City detectives who initially refuse because it is out of their jurisdiction. She is a "Dirty Harriet" type. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is from New York and plays the "good cop" as opposed to Worthington's "bad cop" role. Later we see their roles reverse. There has been 50 unsolved murders involving the Killing Field. Once a girl goes missing there, they are never found alive.

ChloŽ Grace Moretz plays a young troubled teen, taken in by Jeffrey Dean Morgan. When the killer decides to play a cat and mouse game with the cops, ChloŽ Grace Moretz becomes a missing pawn. The acting was excellent, even Worthington who I don't normally like. I enjoyed the steel guitar soundtrack. The plot lacked a good twist and needed a little more depth. If you enjoy a police crime drama, check it out. As a mystery... there are not enough characters for that.

F-bomb, no sex or nudity. Adult sex talk.

There is an area known as the "killing fields" in Texas, where 30 girls and young women have turned up dead since the 1970s. This stretch of land runs along I-45 between Houston and Galveston, Texas and is the bloodiest stretch of highway in America. Here are the basics on the murders that have haunted the area for decades. Just 50 miles long, over the past 38 years nearly 40 women and young girls have been murdered or vanished along this highway. Their bodies have been dumped in fields, parks and the many bodies of water in the area, usually in a sickening state. As of today, the killer is still on the loose. And detectives admit, they're no closer to catching him--although scientific advances could finally end the macabre dance of death. He first struck June 17, 1971. Colette Wilson, 13, had been dropped off from school band practice by the conductor at a bus stop. The young girl seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth. Five months later her nude body was discovered 40 miles away. She died of a single gunshot wound to the head and her flute was never located.

The story is grim and unfortunately so is the film version written by Don Ferrarone, a federal agent who investigated the slaughters, who has said `If you can just imagine having one of these little girls out here...one of these young girls out here...and there's no chance for them to be rescued, to be helped. And they're on they're own.' It was the haunting faces of the lost that inspired Ferrarone to write the screenplay for the film.

The story for the film changes the names of everyone.

I just recently got this movie because the true crime lover in me was watching Investigation Discovery and one of their shows did an episode around these cases and mentioned it had a movie made around it. Well, I want to say while the acting is really amazing and I love all the actors in here and have watched many of their others movies and shows they've played in. This movie isn't as much about the cases as it is about the detectives lives. I had hoped it would focus a bit more on the cases and the like but it's too character heavy for me to be centered around the Texas Killing Fields murders.

If you are looking for someone closer to the crimes this isn't for you. If you are looking for a mystery and thriller this would be a great movie. It's not heavy on any blood or gore so it's nothing crazy either. For those that don't like blood in movies and over the top killing. It's maybe 5% murders and the rest is all about the characters and chasing someone they believe to be the murder. Sometimes I was confused where the direction of the movie was going but it ended up where in the beginning I had predicted.

Had this movie been more around the killings I would have enjoyed it because I like the closer it is to the actual events and more about the crimes it's more interesting. Knowing about the detective and his partners ex-wife isn't something I needed to know. That's just me.

This should have been a lot better movie. The story line appeared to be good and, they did a good job hiring the actors. Jessica Chastain's performance was excellent.
But, they took good actors and good material and did a poor job of tying everything together and making it into a good movie.
The plot of the movie was full of holes and hard to follow. They did a bad job with the sound recording. And, it made it hard to hear the actor's dialog and still harder to follow the plot.
