Crop And Save
Q: Why did god make farts smell? A: So that deaf people can enjoy them too.
I am shocked and very disappointed that most of the the world has no sense of humour whatsoever. It's a most pitiful indictment on humanity that a fun, silly little kids movie like this could be scorned by so many and scored so lowly on IMDb. This movie doesn't really deserve a score of 10 but I feel that I need to somehow redress the balance on this film which I have enjoyed many times over.
I recall when this film was released that there were a number of good reviews published in various newspapers and it was mainly shown in the more "Arthouse/Independent" cinemas around Sydney. I never got around to seeing it until a few years later when I rented it on video. I loved it, and it was one of those films that I tried to get as many of my friends to check it out as well.
This is a film that I would suppose would be most suited to young boys who love a good fart joke, but some of us never grow out of that.
The film has an excellent cast, (you'll recognise many of the adults), and the set designs are an absolute blast.
One of my favourite kids movies.
This happened more than once? You gotta be shitting me!
Are Americans really that incredibly stupid? I watched the whole film mouth wide open, just amazed at the stupidity of every character involved. The movie was quite well made considering the budget. It was hard to sit through however, not because it was poorly made, but because it was very hard to believe just how foolish most of these characters were. The fact that they didn't once question the identity of the officer was mind boggling. I looked up the story on Wikipedia after watching this film and was astounded by the movies accuracy.

Truth is indeed far stranger than fiction.
NZ tourism commercial?
Perhaps I wasn't in the right mood but I just couldn't enjoy this film no matter how hard I tried. I felt this movie had all the artistic merit of a NZ tourism commercial. When I read about the cast and story I was ready to get down to business because if Ray Winstone is in a film I'm ready to at least give it the time of day. By about the half hour mark I was beginning to question Ray's involvement. Temuera Morrison is an actor who can display rather marvelous psychotic abilities, but his acting range is rather limited beyond that, and that was a big let down for me. I found him more and more annoying as the film progressed.
Overall I just couldn't get into The Tracker, it's greatest crime in my opinion is that it is a very ordinary film. If it was indeed cut down to a 40 second NZ tourism commercial, it may very well have been a success.
I Cannot Believe That This Film Only Has 4 Reviews.
I have an old VHS copy of this film and I haven't had a VHS player for more than a decade. I'm not even sure if this ever came out on DVD, I've never seen it in a video shop and I have looked through many. This movie is kind of like an Outback Australian Sci-Fi Jazz Road Trip, brought to you by the man who blessed us with Bad Boy Bubby. The opening scene when Miles Davis lands his space ship (commercial airliner?!?!!), in the desert and proceeds to blow fragile rural minds to smithereens with an awesome array of Jazz Fusion is priceless. I pray to the almighty gods of Jazz that they might one day release this fine film in a format befitting cinema as far out as this.
