Shoot to Kill ★★★ 1988 (R)

A city cop (Poitier, better than ever after 10 years off the screen) and a mountain guide (Berenger) reluctantly join forces to capture a killer who is part of a hunting party traversing the Pacific Northwest and which is being led by the guide's unsuspecting girlfriend (Alley). Poitier may be a bit old for the role, but he carries the implausible plot on the strength of his performance. Good action. 110m/C VHS, DVD . Sidney Poitier, Tom Berenger, Kirstie Alley, Clancy Brown, Richard Masur, Andrew (Andy) Robinson, Frederick Coffin, Kevin Scannell; D: Roger Spottiswoode; W: Michael Burton, Harv Zimmel, Daniel Petrie Jr.; C: Michael Chapman; M: John Scott.
