Pavement Movie Review Summary

Actors: Lauren Holly, Robert Patrick

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Pavement

Samuel Browne (Patrick) is a professional tracker who lives in Alaska. He is notified of his sister's murder and goes to San Francisco, expecting to track the animal who killed her. He learns hers is one in a series of deaths of nurses and doctors. Each appears to have been perforated with hypodermics after being lethally poisoned. When Browne enters and flees the crime scene at his sister's apartment, he is then forced to meet and work with detective Buckley Clarke (Holly). She is dubious about his ability to track the suspect until she sees him at work in the park behind yet another murder scene. Their initial profiles match. She reluctantly lets him help. Soon her supervisors and the FBI find out about the layman's help and are none too pleased. They develop both a mutual attraction and a profile for the killer. It appears to be a person who walks with a leg brace and rides the bus. The others investigating assume the targets are random, but the tracker and cop uncover a pattern involving health care workers specializing in neonatal intensive care. Will they be able to find the killer before s/he can reach a next victim?
