It's good to have veteran and able actor Sidney Poitier back on the screen again, and his contribution to Shoot to Kill helps make this action-thriller set in the mountain wilds of the Northwest a slick and satisfying film. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- It marks Sidney Poitier's return to acting after 10 years behind the camera. He is probably not going to win any awards for this performance, but it's nice to have him back. Full Review

Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment:

Shoot To Kill
Sidney Poitier, one of film's most distinguished and acclaimed actors, returns to the screen after a decade-long absence in this must-see, action-filled thriller. 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). It's a turbulent yet vital relationship they must maintain in order to survive ... and one that becomes increasingly desperate when Knox's girlfriend Sarah (Kirstie Alley of CHEERS) becomes the killer's latest hostage.

Plot Synopsis:

A murderer is on the loose and it's up to big city officer Warren Stantin to chase the culprit into treacherous and mountainous backwoods territory before he can reach Canada. To do so, however, he'll need the help of near-hermit Jonathan Knox who knows the terrain. Feeling that Stantin hasn't got what it takes to go the route, Jonathan agrees only with reluctance -- until his girlfriend becomes one of the killer's hostages.
