(1988) The Tracker
Initially from HBO, which started out with a great premised, but then it turned into predictable mode. The weakness is that it's supposed to be a two hour movie, and that a great portion of this film felt that it just dragged it's viewers into nothing. It stars Kris Kristofferson as Noble Adams, who is supposed to be a well known renown tracker. His only son, Tom Adams(Mark Moses) has just come into town after graduating from becoming a lawyer. After he first informs his dad that he's moving to San Francisco for a lawyers gig, he then decides to wanting to go with his dad into the tracking of this demented serial killer, after a veteran sheriff approached him about it. Noble Adams tells his friend that he's retired, and reluctantly agrees to become a sheriff just for this very last time, and that was when Noble Adams son agrees to become a sheriff as well. I think viewers suspect that Noble Adams never wanted his son to actually know what he does for a living, which is the reason why he sent him away to get a proper education to become a lawyer. This has a little familiarity from "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance", except that it was done first and that it's still a way better movie overall. When viewers are looking at the title "tracker", viewers are going to expect to see some 'tracking' tips, but the thing is that after seeing this one, it still feels quite tame considering the movies you can see before, from such movies as "The Bravadoes" and "True Grit". With this film, you eventually know when things get to happen, and that it doesn't end very well either, just as I've said before, because it's supposed to be a two hour movie.
