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.
Texas Killing Fields provided generous inspiration for the "True Detective" concept. See more »
When the detectives find Little Ann in the killing fields she is bound both hand and foot. Detective Souder cuts the rope binding her feet, but not her hands. Detective Heigh picks her up with her hands still tied, but in the next scene her hands are free. See more »

I was looking forward to the movie for some time. Knowing the actors I expected a good performance and a good story.
But this hope was quick gone. The characters are difficult to follow, who they are and what they do.
The detective Mike Souder (Sam Worthington) and Brian Heigh (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)know another and there is something between them but you do not know what that is. This goes as well for all the other actors they do not have any story or personality and that makes them not at all interesting.
It is like a car accident you know it is not that good but every time you just want to know more and your deceived again and again.
The acting is great but is not able to lift up the lite and not very well constructed story.
At the end your lost in the story, characters are totally uninteresting and you know when you are done with the movie that you could have spend your time differently.
