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 »
Arjan van Diemen:
During the war, me and my men would cut off the trigger fingers of the bravest British officers we captured - only the bravest, mind, the ones most worthy of respect. Do you understand that? That's what I did to people I respected.
Doesn't leave much hope for me then, does it?
Arjan van Diemen:
Hope kills fools like you every day.

I am not sure what the complaints are all about. The acting is brilliant, the story line holds together just fine. The scenery is fantastic. It is culturally and historically sensitive.
The back and forth in the story between the Tracker and the Maori escapee is reminiscent of another great movie, Hell in the Pacific, which starred Toshiro Mifune and Lee Marvin. Each of them would get the upper hand from time to time.
This movie had me on the edge of my seat and the twist at the end had me gasping. I cannot say enough about this movie. All I can say is watch it!
