Ginty's finest film since "The Exterminator"
12 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the IMDb reviews for the film, "Cop Target" has been described as a 'slow, boring, poorly paced action film with no action.' I'm pretty sure the reviewers did not watch the film.

From start to finish, "Cop Target" was a fun fast-paced action film directed by Umberto Lenzi and starring Robert Ginty and Charles Napier.

Like all low-budget films (especially Italian ones) there is some cheesy dialogue and over-the-top acting. But "Cop Target" was not riddled with it (though, we could have done without the "automatic cat feeding machine" segment). Majority of the film has great (evenly spaced) action, decent dialogue and acting. Ginty really acts his heart out and does a great job. Next to "The Exterminator", Ginty gives one of his best performances in an action film. He plays a tough cop with humor and heart very well. However, Charles Napier (who is very much welcome in the film) could have had a better role (but, he wasn't TOO wasted). It was great to see him star with Ginty in a film.

If your a fan of low-budget action, Italian crime, and Robert Ginty...don't miss this one! I own a lot of Ginty's films and "Cop Target" is definitely one of his best and is one of my favorite Ginty films. Revok.com has DVD copies in widescreen but contains small Japanese subs (they are easy to ignore). 7/10
