Wind River is set in the cold wildness of the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. FBI detective Cory Lambert is sent from her post in Las Vegas there to investigate the rape and murder of an 18 year old girl found 5 miles inside the reservation.

My opinion of this film is very average, while it was very well made and acted out it made no sense whatsoever where it mattered; as a crime mystery. Judging by most peoples reviews on the internet they seem to have completely missed that point.

To highlight this for people who have seen it. The part where the detectives go to the camp where the gang of rapists committed their crime; were they already so convinced they would get caught that all hell needed to break out in a gun fight? No. This was supposed to be the climax of the film and it just made no sense at all, no being sly or devious just shooting and killing characters rather than actually making an exciting ending based on the unfolding "mystery". Such a waste, or could it be because there never really was that much to reveal?

Offers very little in the way of mystery, simply a bog standard crime drama that most reviewers gobbled up like dogs to a plate of hot chips because Jeremy Renner stars in it.

Do people really believe this is more compelling than titles such as "Zodiac"? Because in my books a beautiful backdrop and great cinematography don't cut the cake in this particular genre.
