A relative lack of action, pared with simplistic message-movie sentiments, that hampers what in any other case is a solid movie.

With Winstone in the lead you won't expect it to have the action power of Seraphim Falls, which starred Pierce Brosnan and Liam Neeson in 2006, but prepare to be surprised.

The scenery is glorious, but the movie's a hard slog all the same.

[Winstone] is the main reason to watch Tracker, though the scenery comes a good second.
