Storyline

John Cain is a big city cop who journeys deep into the heart of Navajo darkness to catch a brutal killer in this contemporary Western Thriller. A homicide detective on the verge of personal and career burn out, is sent to the Navajo reservation in Arizona to transport a mystic "coyote man" wanted for murder back in Los Angeles, but when the killer escapes from his custody, Cain must track him down across the forbidden Sonoran desert on horseback. Warned of the killer's mythical power to "skinwalk" - Cain is plunged into a deadly confrontation where predator becomes prey - and the quest for justice becomes a battle for his very soul.

The Trickster run amok!
12 May 2012 | by dajones-4See all my reviews

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.
