      British and New Zealand co-production film "Wilderness Tracker"

Van Diemen, a farmer, killed many British officers and escaped the British many times. Now the South African Boer Van Diemen, along with the soldiers who returned home after the Anglo-Boer War, took a ship to New...

      a maori

      A Maori.
      The first time I saw the name Maori was about 30 years ago. When I was a child, I liked the comic strip "Children of Captain Grant", which was changed by Jules Verne's novel. That was my first contact with Verne. The content of the novel has been vaguely remembered, but I am deeply impressed by the Maori people in the novel. They wore feather headdresses, rowed canoes, were naked, had strange stripes on their faces, and, horribly, cannibalized. In the novel, they are uncivilized...

      Ravenston did a great job

      A tired, disappointed and helpless guerrilla, hehe.

      Van Diemen, who went through the three-year Boer War, in order to fight for the independence of the Boer country, as a result, the Boers and the British could not fight this war, and spent 220 million pounds, the basic young and middle-aged of the Boers or Die or be locked up. Van Diemen's wife and daughter disappeared into the British concentration camps, and the Boers recognized Britain as their...

      two heroes

      It feels very simple, a man from thousands of miles away, whose home in South Africa was ravaged, a barbarian descendant who was close at hand and whose home was taken away, two men who were also brutally bloodbathed by British sergeants. .
      The history of modern civilization is bloody killing. More than 100 years have passed, and the descendants of the slayers now seem to be developed and civilized people. We, the descendants of barbarians enlightened by "God", are still at the bottom of...

      What's the point of tracking? ——The look and feel of "Wild Tracker"

      Recently, I have started to like New Zealand, and I want to find some information.
      But not because of the scenery. A few days ago, I learned that the British Chinese in New Zealand first invented the secret ballot method; later, I noticed that the Transparency International Corruption Perception Index ranked New Zealand first for many consecutive years. Politics is as clean as the landscape, making the landscape appear cleaner to people. Clean scenery cannot be replicated by other...

      New Zealand Westerns, not to mention the plot, the historical background is quite rich. Even the scenery is much more eye-catching than the long yellow sand of American Westerns. It really looks like a beautiful landscape...

      1. Imitation of the American Western-style tracking story, too many convoluted tracking techniques; 2. The story is old-fashioned and has no suspense; 3. At least one point is added to the landscape scenery, which is completely the same as a New Zealand tourism promotion film. Compared with traditional Western films, in this way Beautiful places to escape and track are a...

      The pace is too slow, the scenery is too good, the story is too old, the old man is too cool. ....

    Movie quotes

    • Arjan van Diemen: They will probably find you, and shoot you.

      Kereama: If I were in your shoes, which I am

      [glancing down]

      Kereama: , I'd just worry about them finding me.

    • Arjan van Diemen: I'm not taking chances with the rain, not in this bloody country.

      Kereama: It's not going to rain. I'm a sailor. I can tell you the weather from the color of the water.

      [a sudden cloud burst starts pouring down]

    • Arjan van Diemen: During the war, me and my men would cut off the trigger fingers of the bravest British officers we captured - only the bravest, mind, the ones most worthy of respect. Do you understand that? That's what I did to people I respected.

      Kereama: Doesn't leave much hope for me then, does it?

      Arjan van Diemen: Hope kills fools like you every day.
