[T]he film emphasizes its fable qualities and sets the stage for its moral structure, which hinges on the merging of power and racism and the possibility of resistance.

A high-minded film that at times verges on didacticism, The Tracker is redeemed by its adherence to a simple yet distinctive approach to storytelling and its uniformly strong acting.

De Heer doesn't want the violence to distract from the sadness and the substance of the movie's mythic history lesson. It's an inventive idea, one that probably doomed the movie's commercial prospects here in the States.

The Tracker is the first significant movie to find its way into American theaters in 2005.

Specially composed songs makes the study of men driven by primitive cruelty and ruthless justice something of a tone poem.

Combines a classic movie-Western setting and narrative with a Heart of Darkness-like morality play.

Interspersed with moments of great suspense, the tragic cat-and-mouse survival adventure overshadows the heavy-handed didacticism.

See the film mainly for the quiet and powerful work of Gulpilil in the title role.

As the scorned but ever-resourceful guide, Gulpilil has the richest role and makes the most of it.

The Tracker is one of those rare films that deserves to be called haunting.

The Tracker has the punch of a good Western with a clean and direct script plus an adventurous use of songs and folk paintings.

Has the same cinematic grandeur that people admire about John Ford's classic 'The Searchers' without that film's racist reflexes. It's mythmaking of a much higher caliber.

The film's bleakly inevitable ending packs a wallop and its hauntingly desolate images linger long after the story is told.

The Tracker is a deftly rendered Australian parable about white racism and aboriginal survival in the face of the politics of violence and domination.
