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.

Good thriller
11 January 2005 | by pratyushSee all my reviews

I 'pursued' this movie with low expectations but was presently surprised.

It is a fast paced thriller with a good flow. The pursuer will do any thing to get the pursued recruited. Good acting from every one in general with specially good one from Ben in the movie.

One question is why the wife is so immature to not trust her husband and find it good when a stranger keeps giving free gifts. Also, the police can be brought on if some one is stalked the way it is sown in the movie.

Its a neat movie which slowly goes into the violent aspect without being totally unreal. Good editing is of of the strong points. Over all, if you are looking for a movie which would give mild thrill without testing your brain too much and yet be slick and cool, its very much perfect.
