Trivia

Sometimes confused with its excellent follow-up 6-episode miniseries "Winter" (2015) with the same lead actors, this original 90-minute TV production of 2014 establishes the central character of police detective Eve Winter as she investigates the case of 5 bodies discovered in a "killing field." "The Killing Field" (2014) has been referred to as Episode 1, with the following miniseries "Winter" designated Episodes 2 - 7. The 2015 series however has D.S. Eve Winter on a new case, of a murdered young wife and her connection to another young woman who goes missing after a hit-and-run attempt on her life. See more »

Well done had it been a series it would have been amazing
27 January 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched the Killing Field January 2015. It was well done with a majority of the concept being thought out and over all it was very well rounded. I liked the concept and the way the director shot the scenes. The only thing that was missing was that a lot of it seemed forced. It wasn't till it ended that I realized that it was a made for TV movie and not a TV show. Which explains why some of the dialog feels rushed as well as bits in the middle and towards the end. Had they chosen to extend the movie to a two or three night event I think it would have been a much better canvas for the story they were painting. The story unfold slowly so it would have made more sense to let more time pass for the viewer. Plus some of the characters could have benefited from having more time to watch them and get to know them. Other characters seemed to be too hurried and choppy. Over all I think you won't be wasting your time.
