If you are a Highlander the Series fan, or a fan of Adrian Paul, then you probably watched the television show Tracker back in 2001. This series only lasted one season, but it did wrap up the story of the Alien Tracker, Cole, played by Adrian Paul, and his adventures here on earth. If you liked this series and would like to see the episodes again you have the opportunity to do so with the DVD release of Alien Tracker, a movie version of the series.
While this DVD does not include every episode, it does basically follow the series’ storyline from the beginning to almost the end. It runs for 103 minutes and includes footage from the first episode with China Doll, the episode where Cole is captured by a government agency, and the episode where Cole and Nestov search for Zyn in a government run hospital facility. While you probably could follow the story presented by this DVD if you didn’t watch the series in its entirety, it still is a little hard to follow. However, if you are familiar with the series, this DVD is a good memento of the series.
Pros of Alien Tracker DVD
This is a decent DVD. The sound and picture are good quality, and the price is usually around $10 or $11. It contains highlights of some of the most key episodes in the series, and its highlights the dramatic and comedic acting abilities of Adrian Paul.
Cons of Alien Tracker DVD
While this DVD movie did contain key moments from the series, a lot of the best moments were not included in this cut. A lot of the scenes that showed the development of the relationships between the main characters were lost due to trying to reduce an entire season into a 103 minute movie. Also this cut really didn’t resolve the story completely.
