If you can’t get enough of New Zealand countryside in movies, and love hunter-and-the-hunted style thrillers, then you might just want a copy of Tracker.
Ray Winstone is, for the first time in my memory at least, playing someone who never has the urge to say “guv,” a surprise after a career in films such as 44-Inch Chest and Sexy Beast. As a South African Boer who’s lost his home in the Boer War at the beginning of the 20c, he travels to New Zealand where he is employed to track down a Maori accused of killing a British Soldier (played by Temuera Morrison) only to find he has a lot in common with the man.
Those of you that are on-the-ball with names and faces may find this role-reversal oddly amusing, given that Morrison played bounty hunter Jango Fett in Star Wars Episodes I & II. However, this time he’s on the run from Winstone, and not a Jedi. It’s hard to decide which is the worse scenario.
So, if you’re intrigued (we are, immensely so), then we’ve got a competition for you, folks! We have three copies of Tracker to give away to our readers, so get cracking on the question below, and good luck! Trailer’s below and so’s the question.
Which major film trilogy was filmed in New Zealand?
And here’s the trailer:
