Mike Souder (Sam Worthington, Terminator Salvation, Clash of the Titans, Avatar) and Brian Heigh (Jeffery Dean Morgan, Watchmen, The Losers) are cops in southeastern Texas.
When bodies start turning up along an isolated stretch of road, they – especially Brian – become obsessed with finding the killer.
I’m not sure how a move can be tense and limp at the same time, but somehow director Ami Canaan Mann (daughter of Michael Mann) pulls it off.
First, let’s acknowledge that we are talking about a movie based on actual events. While the police have some leads, the investigation is ongoing.
That can make true crime stories feel out of focus, or jarring.
