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 ...

Strong character portrayals carry a slow story
16 February 1999 | by JuBooSee all my reviews

Linda Hamilton is convincing as a search and rescue tracker searching the desert for a lost little girl. While the dialogue in many instances of the film left something to be desired, Hamilton's voice-over work when revealing the character's inner feelings and motivation was exceptional. In a particularly well-acted scene near the end of the film, Hamilton brings a heartfelt realism and poignancy that every mother can understand.

Kevin Kilner brilliantly played the violent ex-husband and kidnapping father that you love to hate. Kilner is usually a very pleasant presence on screen, which is what makes this evil performance so impressive.

Way off-the-mark were the flashbacks scenes meant to show the characters early in their marriage. While the premise was a good one, in order to help viewers understand the relationship and its origins, Hamilton's character was played by a young actress who looked nothing like Hamilton while Kilner remained in his character's shoes, looking not the least bit younger.
