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 »
I didn't think it was possible, but I finally watched a Ray Winstone movie that wasn't very good. "Tracker" has a fine premise and could have provided a valuable history lesson, as few Americans (myself included) have little knowledge of the Boer Wars. However, despite the gorgeous New Zealand scenery, the plot, direction and acting are fairly lame. Temuera Morrison, playing the native Maori being tracked, overacts to an embarrassing degree and even Winstone - one of my favorite non-American actors - seems to be doing little more than going through the motions. The plot is predictable, the dialog stilted and the movie itself does little more than take up time.
