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

swift pace helps story
16 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back when HBO would show an action movie every Thursday night, i happened to catch this flick. I got way more then I expected. Heavener, aping Clint Eastwood's performance in Dirty Harry, has the looks of a rouge cop. the rest of the cast is just as good, and what a cast. jenilee Harrison, best known for her stint on Three's Company, Robert Reed, the brady bunch dad in his last major role, ANdrew Robinson, forever immortalized for his role as the Scorpio killer in Dirty Harry, and perhaps the best, music legend Issac Hayes, years before his rebirth with South Park. Then you have Tony Curtis, a true legend who can make any role work. The conflict of genetic between Heavener and Curtis is priceless, as they share many good one liners. The movie moves along swiftly, and despite the rehashed story line. Not too more dependency on big explosions, nudity. The movie works, plain and simple. Prime Target is a guilty little pleasure you won't feel guilty for enjoying.
