Pursued (2004) -* * *
Directed By: Kristoffer Tabori
Starring: Christian Slater, Gil Bellows, Estella Warren, Michael Clarke Duncan, and Saul Rubinek
Pursued is a fun, if silly thriller. Jack Nicholson's long lost "cousin" Christian Slater stars as Vincent Palmer, a headhunter for a transfer company. Ben Keats (Bellows) becomes a target after Keats refuses Palmer's offer. Vincent becomes increasingly persistent even stalking Ben's family. Can he escape?
Christian Slater is excellent as Palmer. He knows how to be calm and to be ruthless at the same time, and make you believe it. Bellows is boring and Duncan doesn't have a lot of screen time. The ending is suspenseful, but a little ridiculous.
Pursued is worth watching for a hyped-up Slater and the unusual plot.
