The Tracker is a 2019 action thriller directed by Giorgio Serafini and starring Dolph Lundgren, Cosimo Fusco, and Marta Gastini. The film follows the story of Aiden Hakansson (Lundgren), a former soldier turned tracker, who is hired by a wealthy businessman to find his kidnapped daughter, who has been taken by a sex trafficking ring.

The opening scene of the movie is set in the Russian wilderness and introduces us to Hakansson, who is shown tracking a wild animal. We learn that he is a skilled tracker with a troubled past, haunted by the death of his wife and child in a tragic accident. This backstory adds depth to his character and explains his motivation for taking on the high-risk job of finding the missing girl.

The plot then moves to Milan, where we see the kidnapping take place. The young girl, Francesca (Gastini), is abducted from the street in broad daylight and taken to a rundown facility where she is drugged and forced into prostitution. The ruthless leader of the trafficking ring, Marco (Fusco), is a sadistic man who enjoys inflicting pain on his victims, and he is determined to keep Francesca for as long as possible.

As Hakansson begins his search, he teams up with a local policeman, Giuseppe (Marco Mazzoli), who has some knowledge of the criminal underworld. Together, they follow a series of clues that lead them to the traffickers’ den. The stakes are raised when they discover that time is running out, as Francesca is scheduled to be sold to a buyer in another country.

The action scenes in the movie are intense and well-choreographed. There are a number of hand-to-hand fight sequences, as well as car chases and shootouts. Lundgren gives a convincing performance as the grizzled tracker, relying on his experience as an actor in previous action films to bring a sense of authenticity to the role. Fusco is appropriately menacing as the villain, and Gastini delivers a strong performance as the captive girl who retains her spirit despite the horrors she faces.

One of the strengths of the movie is its realistic portrayal of the sex trafficking industry. The filmmakers have clearly done their research and have created a believable depiction of the harrowing reality faced by victims of this trade. The movie does not shy away from showing the brutal treatment of the girls, which adds a sense of urgency to the story and makes it more impactful.

The Tracker also touches on themes of redemption and revenge. Hakansson is a man seeking to make amends for his past mistakes, and his quest to save Francesca becomes a personal mission. The film explores the idea of whether or not violence is ever justified, and whether the pursuit of justice is worth the cost.

Overall, The Tracker is a well-crafted action thriller with a compelling storyline and strong performances from its cast. The movie avoids the clichés of the genre and instead delivers a sobering look at the world of sex trafficking. While the violence depicted may be too intense for some viewers, the film handles the subject matter with sensitivity and respect. It is a must-watch for fans of Lundgren and anyone interested in the issue of human trafficking.

The Tracker is a 2019 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.6.
