Shoot to Kill Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P106725~Sidney Poitier~sidneypoitier]] makes his long-overdue return to films in the 1988 thriller [[Feature~V143499~Shoot to Kill~disparenamatar]]. [[Performer~P106725~Poitier~sidneypoitier]] plays an FBI agent, on the trail of an elusive killer. Reluctantly teamed with tracker [[Performer~P5539~Tom Berenger~tomberenger]], the citified [[Performer~P106725~Poitier~sidneypoitier]] braves the wilds of the Pacific Northwest in search of his quarry. For [[Performer~P5539~Berenger~tomberenger]], 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 [[Performer~P1093~Kirstie Alley~kirstiealley]]. Though only bearing the slightest resemblance to Real Life (you'll love the scene between lifelong city-dweller [[Performer~P106725~Poitier~sidneypoitier]] and a huge grizzly bear), [[Feature~V143499~Shoot to Kill~disparenamatar]] delivers the goods in the suspense department. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
