Michael Mann's daughter, Ami Canaan, directs this pungent thriller, based on "true events", about three detectives Mike, Brian and Pam (Sam Worthington, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Jessica Chastain) trying to solve a spate of murders in Texas City.

The female victims have been dumped in a spooky swamp area known as the Killing Fields. When a teenage girl, Little Anne Sliger (Chloë Moretz), goes missing, Brian and Mike are forced to enter the killing fields in search for her. This sometimes confusing police procedural is lifted by some impressive photography from Stuart Dryburgh, a great car chase and an engaging performance from Morgan.
