Shoot to Kill Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Sidney Poitier makes his long-overdue return to films in the 1988 thriller Sidney Poitier. Poitier plays an FBI agent, on the trail of an elusive killer. Reluctantly teamed with tracker Tom Berenger, the citified Poitier braves the wilds of the Pacific Northwest in search of his quarry. For Berenger, the pursuit is personal; the killer, whose identity is not immediately revealed, has joined a hunting party being guided through the country by the tracker's girlfriend Kirstie Alley. Though only bearing the slightest resemblance to Real Life (you'll love the scene between lifelong city-dweller Poitier and a huge grizzly bear), Sidney Poitier delivers the goods in the suspense department. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
