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.

The-Stickup-2002Pursued is a good mystery\thriller with some silly moments. Christian Slater  does such a excellent job, you root for him.  The other main character is Ben Keats, played by Gil Bellows. Unfortunately, Ben is a two dimensional character who is a little too laid back. There are a couple of plot missteps like Ben getting a speech about secret cameras that could be in a pen and then the next scene is Ben getting a pen and he doesn’t check for a camera. It’s like he forgot the whole speech. The climax is exciting but a tad goofy. In the end: It’s worth seeing for a great, hyped up performance by Christian Slater and a lot of other tension filled moments.
