Our Score
An understated yet expressive lead performance distracts from all the clichés in this watchable crime drama about parenting and second chances. Scott Patterson adds depth to his small-town stereotype, playing a Rocky Mountains ex-sheriff and expert tracker who takes to the mean streets of Chicago to try to clear his estranged son of murder. Though his deduction-based, investigation process is often a little hard to swallow - causing predictable conflict with Polly Shannon's sceptical, no-nonsense city cop - it's the subtle handling of the emotional and family issues behind this contrived detective work that keeps the film interesting. You can really feel the regret in Patterson's affectingly human character, which makes the reconciliatory finale, in particular, inevitable but satisfying.


A wilderness tracker travels to Chicago when he learns his son is a murder suspect and has gone missing. He joins forces with the homicide detective handling the case, intending to use his skills to both find his son and identify the real killer. Mystery, starring Scott Patterson, Polly Shannon and Emilie Ullerup.
