Storyline

John Bloodstone is a cop who is put on suspension after he uses a blow torch to stop a group of hostage takers. Bloodstone's next assignment begins when his boss, Commissioner Garth, calls him in and introduces him to FBI agent Harrington, and Garth and Harrington assign Bloodstone to transport a mob informant named Marrietta Copella to a new location. Soon after Bloodstone picks Copella up, Bloodstone and Coppella figure out that Garth and Harrington have set them both up to be killed, because Garth and Harrington are afraid Copella will mention their names in his testimony, and Garth thinks Bloodstone is too dangerous and nosy to keep on the force anymore. What Garth and Harrington have forgotten is that Bloodstone carries a pistol that is capable of blowing basketball sized holes into people. Written by Todd Baldridge

OK so the movie has problems ..... but it is strangely watchable
22 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The VHS for this low budget affair incredibly starts out with David Heavener pitching some kind of contest, where you call him for $2.00/ minute. Is this possibly to cover the movie's micro budget getting blown? Either way, the first thing that will get your attention as cheaping out, is there are no extra's milling about, especially noticeable in the final shootout on the court house steps. I mean guns blazing, snipers falling off roofs, and the town is completely deserted, except for the combatants? Every cent must have been spent on the car chases, and pyrotechnics. The script is so simple, a ten year old could have written it. So why is the movie still watchable? It's got a very intriguing cast of supporting actors. What's not to like about Don Stroud, Isaac Hayes, Andy Robinson, or Tony Curtis? The film includes some humorous exchanges between Heavner and Curtis, brief nudity, and a catchy C&W tune. You could do a lot worse than "Prime Target". - MERK
