"Russell Wong and Casper Van Dien are action guys that every now and then luck out with supporting roles in big budget films. Recently those were Romeo Must Die for Wong and Sleepy Hallow for Van Dien. Other than that they are straight to video leading men. The Tracker is the perfect illustration of this fact.
Van Dien plays a womanizing ex-cop turned slick private investigator. Wong is his former friend who recruits him for a major job, his sister (Lexa Doig) has been kidnapped and her husband murdered. But typically, the backstory is Van Dien and the sister were lovers and the brother had a hand in their split, which is why they aren't friends anymore. So they go to New York, hustle up a tough female cab driver (Francoise Robertson) who does not mind getting in harms way for cab fair (because all New York cab drivers care about their customers), and then Van Dien's ex-partner (Jason Blicker) who has no hard feeling towards Van Dien despite some seriously unresolved personal conflicts, to help out. Now that they have there crew there is only one thing to do. Solve the case of which New York mafia family is responsible by breaking everything, and everyone, in sight.This plot makes for some good comedy. There are some silly twists. Although it is not really suppose to be funny. There are some good fights. Still, this is one of those films where you just know the good guys will never get scratched because no matter how many beatings they take, they just dust off their pants and are fine. If that sounds like your cup of tea, then you might like The Tracker. I would look elsewhere, but I do not regret seeing it. Like I said, there are some good fights, they just weren't quite good enough to save this movie."

"One for the girls! If you love Russell Wong then you won't be disappointed and the buddy theme with casper Van Diem & action scenes make this an easy movie to watch-with the "Black sash" tv-series on the way.. it good to see RW in a leading role again."
