For better or for worse, Movies In Focus will watch anything starring John Cusack. That’s means I’ll be giving Pursuit a go when it hit select US cinema screens and On Demand on 18 February 2022.
Directed by Brian Skiba, the action-thriller also stars Emile Hirsch, Jake Manley and Elizabeth Ludlow. The trailer makes Pursuit look like a nuts and bolts thriller, but I’m hoping that Cusack brings something interesting to the table (aside from his usual black fashion ensemble).
John Cusack (Grosse Pointe Blank) and Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) star in this action thriller about a tough cop’s hunt for an even tougher criminal. Detective Breslin crosses paths with Calloway (Hirsch), a ruthless hacker desperate to find his wife, who has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. When Calloway escapes police custody, Breslin joins forces with a no-nonsense female cop to reclaim his prisoner. But is Calloway’s crime-boss father (Cusack) somehow involved in this explosive situation?
