Storyline

Souder, a homicide detective in a small Texan town, and his partner, transplanted New York City cop Detective Heigh, track a sadistic serial killer dumping his victims' mutilated bodies in a nearby marsh locals call 'The Killing Fields'. Though the swampland crime scenes are outside their jurisdiction, Detective Heigh is unable to turn his back on solving the gruesome murders. Despite his partner's warnings, he sets out to investigate the crimes. Before long, the killer changes the game and begins hunting the detectives, teasing them with possible clues at the crime scenes while always remaining one step ahead. When familiar local girl Ann goes missing, the detectives find themselves racing against time to catch the killer and save the young girl's life.

This review is actually a warning.
27 May 2012 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

This is a movie about forgetting and confusion (what did I want to say? how come there are so many characters? what shall I do with them? what do you mean by "the plot"? I am directing a movie?? really? since when??).

Total waste of good actors, time and, of course, invested money.

This movie should have been directed by someone who is, at least, involved in it, knowing what to do. Otherwise it looks exactly like this: a bunch of characters which are connected but you'll never find out how and why, some parallel stories which do intersect occasionally (so one may be fooled and expect a wisely directed finale, when everything shows up and is explained - no, it is not), ending of the movie which over viewers head leaves a question mark big as Burj Khalifa ("hey! the movie just started! what is this?!") and so on.

On the other hand, camera work is great. Acting too. Therefore 4 stars. Otherwise it would be 0. And you'll always find a creature who will find this mess a masterpiece. That's life.
