Audience Reviews for Shoot to Kill (Deadly Pursuit)

    Starts brilliantly but reveals the killer too soon leaving the tension to just evaporate away. Shame.

    PLOT: Warren Stantin, an FBI agent (Sidney Poitier), and tracker Jonathan Knox (Tom Berenger), are paired together to track a killer who has kidnapped Knox's girlfriend, played by Kirstie Alley. They must over come their personality differences in order to catch the elusive murderer. This was a great action/thriller 80's movie, with a little comedy here and there by Sidney Poitier. It was nice to see Berenger and Alley in their younger days.

    Brilliant movie showing Poitier hadnt lost it.

    A truly unique 80s action thriller: in order to chase a killer and diamond thief, an FBI agent (Poitier) has to team up with an expert hiker (Berenger) whose girlfriend (Alley) leads a group of men through the mountains to the Canadian border, among them: the killer. The movie takes this idea and creates a breathless trip through beautiful scenery, adding lots of action, suspense and guessing which one of the hikers the killer actually is. Additionally, Poitier's performance adds so much humor to the excitement that you won't look at your watch once during the movie. Some minor plot holes at the connection points to the showdown back in civilization don't really ruin the overall perfect impression this movie leaves, especially the first time you see it. A little known gem of the genre. Not only for fans. They just don't make such action thrillers anymore!
