Storyline

Wall Street's leading headhunter Vincent Palmer isn't just extremely good in finding the ideal executives for corporate top jobs and offering them a deal hard to resist. His special knack is making them sign even if they really don't want to. Such a hard nut is Benjamin 'Ben' Keats, who invented a brilliant persons tracking device and is committed to his partners and staff to use it to launch their firm VizTrack on the stock exchange. Vincent pulls all seductive stops with Ben, his wife and daughter, in vain. Then he hints even murder is in his repertoire. Ben checks out that's true but decides ti fight back.

The head hunter
6 August 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Kristoffer Tabori's "Pursued", suffers from the screen play written by Maggie April. Mr. Tabori, an excellent actor, who has turned his attention to directing, seems to be out of his element with this movie. Thrillers that are based on revolutionary technology don't seem to translate well to the screen, as it's the case with "Pursued".

In fact, Mr. Tabori gets an over the top performance from Christian Slater, as the evil Vincent Palmer, who like all villains, seems to be miles ahead of everyone else in the story. On the other hand, Gil Bellows, who is the victim of Palmer, seems to be completely impotent to do anything, or even go to the police with the troubles he is facing. The problem seems to be exacerbated by Mr. Bellows' take on the character, as he makes him even weaker.

The result is an uneven film, that showed possibilities, but in the end, doesn't fulfill them. For a film that deals in cutting edge technology, one would think that Ben Keats, the genius behind the new program that will revolutionize cyberspace tracking, would have been aware of the spies out there, especially the scumbag that is making his life impossible, and invested in the best anti-spy software money could buy. The only point the film makes is how prevalent industrial spying is in the hands of people like the repulsive Vincent Palmer.
