Dudikoff with a plot
11 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Sadly, a good majority of Michael Dudikoff's movies have pretty thin plots. I don't have much of a problem with that, but it is nice to see him do something with a slightly better story now and then. MOVING TARGET gets off to a bad start, with some terrible editing and sound mixing that results in moments of unintentional laughs. But once the film gets going, the story picks up and offers a plot with some twists as Dudikoff's Sonny McLean, a bounty hunter, finds himself in the middle of a mob war. Billy Dee Williams offers his always-reliable support McLean's detective friend, and Michelle Johnson does a decent job as McLean's pregnant wife. The action scenes are pretty well-done, including the truck/snow-ski chase, an attack sequence at a school, and the climactic mansion raid with the FBI and Dudikoff taking on the mob. With a jazzy score that gives the film a nice urban film and a good story, MOVING TARGET comes out as one of Dudikoff's best. If only the opening sequence could have been as good as the rest of the film.
