A good movie

10 years, 10 months ago at Aug 26 12:37
Even though Sidney Poitier is a movie legend, I haven't seen much of his movies and he was the main reason why I decided to watch this flick. Eventually, even though it is nothing really amazing, I thought it was a pretty good movie. Indeed, it is basically a rather standard action buddy movie but, I have to admit it, it was actually very well made. Furthermore, Poitier delivered a decent performa... read more

Description: Sidney Poitier returned to the big screen in this action-thriller, after a decade-long absence. When a cunning murderer vanishes into the rugged mountains of the Pacific Northwest, pursuing FBI agent Warren Stantin (Poitier) must exchange familiar city streets for unknown wilderness trails. Completely out of his element, Stantin is forced to enlist the aid of expert tracker Jonathan Knox (PLATOON'S Tom Berenger). The killer has infiltrated a guided hiking trip led by Knox's girlfriend Sarah (Kirstie Alley, at the height of her Cheers fame). Viewers don't know which of the hikers is the killer, and the tension lasts well into the ... (more)

"A forgotten gem. This cracking thriller has Sidney Poitier as an FBI agent in pursuit of a diamond thief and killer. Heading into the wilderness where the criminal has hooked up with a fishing party, being led by Kirstie Alley, Poitier has to team up with wilderness expert Tom Berenger but will nature kill them before they can find their target. A tense and exciting film that is helped by a good double act from the two leads and Poitier's instinct for comedy. "

"20.1, PC Jotenkin oletin tämän olevan vakavampaa murhaajajahtia kuin mitä tämä loppujen lopuksi on. Alku lupailee juurikin tällaista synkempää meininkiä, mutta tapahtumien siirtyessä luonnon ääreen ja Sidney Poitierin lyötyä hynttyyt yhteen Tom Berengerin kanssa, alkaa Shoot to Kill saada enempi perinteisiä buddy-elokuvan piirteitä. Vähän harmillista, sillä parivaljakon meininki on hitusen päälleliimatun oloista hassuttelua paikka paikoin. Clancy Brownin pärstän pamahdett"
