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. Written by
When Ben and the security expert are following Vincent to his house, Vincent's SUV changes from a Cadillac to a GMC then back to a Cadillac. See more »
First, I'm gonna kill you, then I'm gonna strap a saddle on your wife and ride her all the way to the finish line, then I'm gonna moonwalk up and down your daughter. You like the sound of that, buddy?

I like Christian Slater, I'm a fan. And I understand he may want to try out a bad-guy role like his co-star John Travolta in Broken Arrow, but this movie makes Slater annoying. Everywhere you turn - he's there with that grating voice and midwestern accent and pushy personality.
The movie is contrived and predictable. Yes, Slater did a good job of acting because his character evoked the desired emotions as the pursuer. But the pursuee scientist Ben Keats is a genius in the lab, but is so dumb outside as to be impossible. Never thinks to call the police. His wife is equally as dumb to believe obvious contrived stories of their chance meetings.
So about 1/3 of the way into the movie I stopped caring and just watched to see if the movie really was as predicable as I thought. I am so good, unfortunately, so I wasted 1 hour. Thank you, the movie is only 95 minutes.
