Goofs

On the Coastal trail, after the official tracker (Bryce) acknowledged that they are following the wrong man, we see Arjan van Diemen at his campsite with a small brightly burning fire (no smoke). Then we see Kereama at his campsite from where he sees dense smoke rinsing from Diemen(?)'s campfire. Then once more we see Diemen's smokeless fire. See more »

Enjoyable - good dialogue, some laughs.
28 September 2011 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

The cat and mouse/hunter-prey theme is pretty well rought but this film adds a convincing human element to a film that might otherwise get caught up in the landscape or action.

The early scenes and some of the supporting cast are a little lackluster, and reminded this viewer how difficult it is for New Zealand films to escape a sort of provincialism (for want of a better word) that can often be detected in kiwi films trying to be 'international'. Winstone, Morrison and Andy Anderson as the colonial tracker all stand out in this.

The film has plenty of action and fistycuffs and ballyhoo but the focus is firmly on the tension of the hunt and the connection that forms between Winston and Morrison's characters.

Without adding a spoiler I will say the ending, while not disappointing, might have been 'more'. You make your own mind up!
