6 November 2001 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought it was my duty as a fellow movie buff to let you know Moving Target isn't very good. I don't know what the people who reviewed this movie positively were smoking because this is pretty sad. It went straight to video which I guess is no surprise for Michael Dudikoff fare, but even for Dudikoff fans, I don't recommend this. Seen one bounty hunter conspiracy yarn with Dudikoff haven't you seen them all?

Moving Target has the overhanging feeling of complete cheapness. Shot in Canada on a small budget with no real names involved in the project (Billy Dee appears picking up a quick paycheck) and a musical score that encompasses one track which the movie employees over and over again, it's amateur hour. Moving Target promises action and conspiracy, but delivers on neither. The action is flat out boring, the acting rivals that of my pizza delivery guy and the plot is borderline stupid. Which could also be used to describe me having watched this and somehow not turned it off.
