The Trickster run amok!
Good cast. Very well acted. GREAT scenery. And although my knowledge of such things is a bit limited, the Navajo beliefs were portrayed accurately. What's not to like?
Here you have a big city homicide cop whose life is in a shambles and whose wife is leaving him. He wants to quit, but his boss sends him on a "simple" prisoner retrieval.
Turns out the prisoner is a shape-shifter, escapes from the big city cop (Scott Glenn), and the ensuing search for the prisoner (Benjamin Bratt) brings the lead tracker (Angela Alverado) and cop together for an interesting and tense adventure.
Some of the dialog in the ending scenes was a bit cliché and tedious, but it did not detract from the overall enjoyment I had of the movie.
I liked it well enough, I may watch it a 2nd time in the future.
