Tracker – 2010 – English

Film directed in 2010 by Ian Sharp, and starring Ray Winstone, Nicholas McGough, Gareth Reeves…


Synopsis: An Afrikaner veteran of the Boer War has just immigrated to New Zealand and is hired to track a man accused of killing a soldier. While hunting through the countryside he captures his fugitive, only to learn that he’s innocent of the crime. When faced with the life-changing decision to turn him in or set him free only, one man will walk away alive.


Review: I saw Tracker at a preview screening a few days back and wasn’t sure what to expect – The idea of Ray Winstone attempting a South African Accent in particular made me nervous. And it does get off to a slowish start. But…

As soon as the chase is underway the film really opens out. Moments of genuine threat, tension and some really quite crunchy violence are counterbalanced by a pervading air of melancholy – hunter and hunted have both lost everything – and an increasing dramatic weight to the story as they find common ground whilst engaged in a high risk game of cat and mouse.

It’s not the most psychologically complicated movie in the world, basically being a boys own action film, but it’s made well, with obvious love and attention to detail plus two towering central performances from the leads. And it has a heart. By the time the film reached it’s climax I was properly choked up and genuinely on the edge of my seat.

And Ray did a good job with the accent after all.
