Storyline

Point Last Seen is a suspense drama inspired by actual events, in which Rachel Harrison, (played by Linda Hamilton) the head of a search-and-rescue team, works desperately to save the life of a lost child. At the same time she is struggling with the absence of her own children who have been kidnapped by her ex-husband. The only information Rachel has about the lost 9-year-old girl, is that she is wearing a size 3-1/2 tennis shoe with straight lines on the soles and a wad of gum stuck to the bottom. She tracks the girl's footprints through the hot desert sun, and becomes exhausted and dehydrated but keeps searching, determined to find the child before it is too late. Well into the search, Rachel learns that her ex-husband has been found, but her kids are not with him. She continues to look for Mandy while worrying whether or not her own children are alive.

Goofs

When Sam lands in the Sheriff's helicopter to pick up Rachel we hear the engine and rotors winding down, but as seen in the rotor's reflection in the windows, and the tail rotor visible behind Sam, they are not turning. The same happens when the helicopter is started for take-off - then engines and rotors can be heard spooling up, but the rotors are visibly not moving at all. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Harrison: The process of getting lost seems lenghty and complex on the surface but is quite often nothing of the sort. Two steps off the trail, and then two more. A wash that looks like a trail, a trail that looks like a creek bed, and you can be just as lost as if somebody had dumped you on the moon. The tracker's job is to find those first two steps. That first mistake. That first disastrous detour. That's the place the finding begins, but tracking one's life? I suppose it's the same. I suppose you ...

Another Fine Example of Hamilton's Declining Career
7 April 2001 | by (Wigan, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this purely because Linda Hamilton was in it, and the moment I found out it was based on a true story I knew it would suck. The entire movie follows Hamilton, she is in every scene and without her presence the whole thing would suck. Not that it sucks already. There was no excitement, no adrenaline rushes - it was just bad.
