The raid of a rebel militia group goes bad and the entire teams gets wiped out except for Jim and Nick, who manages to save them both. Five years later, they are out of the CIA game. That is, until one day Jim gets a call from a mysterious woman from the Balkan country of Gorna informing him that Nick is in prison. Jim is tasked to bring a suitcase left with him by Nick. Jim tries to enlist the help of the CIA who refuses, telling him Nick is now an enemy of the state, a black market dealer of state secrets and weapons. Jim is advised to stay away. But Jim owes his life to Nick and embarks on a solo mission to break his friend out of prison and get to the truth of whether Nick is now dirty or not... Written by amw

Target of Opportunity's Big Success
16 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Action films usually have a lot of Action and very little acting. Target is the first "Action" film I've seen in years where the actors deserve to be in a bigger budgeted more high profile "Action" movie. They deserve to be on the big screen.

"Target" stars Dean Cochran and Todd Jensen. Both actors really deliver the goods, but Todd Jensen undoubtedly steals the show. He plays, Nick Carlton, a flamboyant, risk taking CIA agent. Jensen's performance reminds me of a truly contemporary American version of James Bond with more "Balls." He's gritty, tough and believe it or not very funny! This film given a bigger budget would stand up to and surpass the original "Lethal Weapon" buddy picture and we all know how good that film was.

Cochran is the straight man to Jensen's seemingly uncontrollable behavior and what a great job he does. These two actors deserve MORE! MUCH MORE!! In the Action film genre where the last real action heroes are now in their sixties and even governing California, Todd Jensen and Dean Cochran are definitely ready, more than capable and in Jensen's case more than qualified to take the leap.

I hope and pray that all the Hollywood Gods smile and bless these two talented men.

Give them what they need! Give them what we all need!

Give them "A Break!"
