Movie Review: The Tracker (1988)

This is an HBO produced movie and featured Kris Kristofferson as The Tracker.  He is convinced to join the tracking of a lunatic Mormon and his gang.  Several historical inaccuracies here, but they start with the Mountain Meadows Massacre and go from there.  That part is really sort of silly, but this has a hardened gang which is going around killing innocent unsuspecting people, and someone has to stop them.  the Tracker's son, Tom (Mark Moses), insists on coming along.  On their way they take a girl and a young woman hostage.  A real theme to the movie is whether the son, educated in the East, will have the gumption to kill someone.  We do not know the answer to this question until the end.
