Reviews:  Review by Kevin…

I saw this film when it came out in 1988. If I remember correctly it was when I was living in my older brother-in-laws house in Tacoma, Wa (he had since moved across the country). If I was wrong, then it was the next place on 6th Ave (I had lived in Tacoma since the beginning of 1986). The film was rated R, so perhaps I saw it by myself, since I had a very young son, Daniel. But who knows, because I had taken him to see other R-rated films (like Unforgiven, directed and starring Clint Eastwood). This film was awesome. I know that because it has stayed with me until I got the DVD today, July 1st, 2019. Oh how the actors and actress have changed over the years, and all 3 of them, Poitier, Berringer and Alley are still with us (Poitier is 92). The film is rough and tumble as it takes you from the city, to the woods for most of the film, and back to the city, all the while some snippets of laughter was hear amounst the actors. But even take didn’t take away from the heart-pounding thrills that this film provided.


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) becomes the killer's latest hostage.
