Storyline

John Cain is a big city cop who journeys deep into the heart of Navajo darkness to catch a brutal killer in this contemporary Western Thriller. A homicide detective on the verge of personal and career burn out, is sent to the Navajo reservation in Arizona to transport a mystic "coyote man" wanted for murder back in Los Angeles, but when the killer escapes from his custody, Cain must track him down across the forbidden Sonoran desert on horseback. Warned of the killer's mythical power to "skinwalk" - Cain is plunged into a deadly confrontation where predator becomes prey - and the quest for justice becomes a battle for his very soul.

A Good Mystic Movie Underrated in IMDB
21 April 2004 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

John Cain (Scott Glenn) is a homicide detective passing through personal problems. His wife has just left him, after nine years of marriage. His chief is aware of the problem, and asks him to bring a serial killer, Nakai Twobear (Benjamin Bratt), arrested in an Indian reservation. While driving back to the city with the prisoner, Cain hits the car and the murderer escapes. Cain joins Ray Whitesinger (Angela Alvarado) and other Indian policemen in the chase of the criminal, who has some sort of psychic powers. Weird things happen with Cain, whose soul was possessed by Twobear. In the end, Cain finds again the meaning of life with Ray. This movie has a good mystic story, well constructed, having action, romance and mysticism. I am a fan of Scott Glenn, but he really has a good performance, as a tormented man in a hard time. The slow pace is the unique problem in this good film. It is not a masterpiece, but also it does not deserve such a low rating. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): `A Presa' (`The Catch')
