Tracker

Action thriller set in colonial New Zealand, starring Ray Winstone as an ex-Boer War master tracker aiming to collect the bounty on a man (Temuera Morrison) who has gone bush after being accused of murdering a British soldier.

Kereama (Morrison) and Arjan (Winstone) test their wits and bushcraft skills against each other in a life or death game of cat and mouse through the varied landscape of New Zealand. Kereama is repeatedly caught by the master tracker but manages to continually escape before Arjan can claim the bounty. The pair gradually come to know and respect each other but as Kereama continues to protest his innocence to Arjan, a British possee intent on capturing and hanging the seaman is hot on the trail, following close behind.

I thought the movie flowed along great, the scenery was stunning. The 2 main characters did a great job with the acting, it seemed to need something else rather than just tracking as it seemed monotonous at times. Kia Kaha.

I wasn't expecting much but was a decent watch. Ray Winstone is always great to watch and Temuera Morrison wasn't too bad. The whole 'tracking' thing got a bit old after a while but I liked how the main characters bonded. Not bad...and the New Zealand scenery is as always...breathtaking!
