Plot Summary

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 movie. Written by Donny Dollar

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Called "Deadly Pursuit" in the UK. Because of the recent massacre in Hungerford, where Micheal Ryan had gone on a shooting rampage killing around dozen people and injuring a number of others, it was thought to be in bad taste to release a film with "shoot" in the title. See more »
Goofs When the jeweler wraps the diamonds, the bag is open at both ends, and is essentially too pieces of cloth tied together (which is why some diamonds fall out when he picks it up). For the rest of the film, the bag is a proper bag made of a completely different material. See more »
