Storyline

Jim Jacobs and Nick Carlton, childhood friends, are CIA operatives on a sting operation in Chechnya. 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

Dean Cochran has arrived
30 July 2005 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Target of Opportunity finally announces the arrival of Dean Cochran as a full fledged leading man. The movie itself is pretty good, it's got a decent story, good action, it's fairly well directed, and has a high production value for a Nu Image film; but, the key here is Cochran. I've followed him through his lead roles in Air Marshal and Shark Zone and seen him in supporting roles in films like Phone Booth but Target really marks his arrival. I read that he was cast opposite Chuck Norris in an upcoming movie and think he has a new series coming out. It's good to see a film company take the time to build stars.

Target follows Jim Jacobs as he defies the CIA to go to the country of Ghorna to rescue his former parter Nick (played very well by actor Todd Jensen). It starts out a lot like SPY GAME in that sense but quickly becomes like The Borne Identity as Jim finds Nick has completely lost his memory other than knowing that he has left himself clues about a mission.

It's all pretty well done - now understand, it's well done considering it's a lower budgeted action film but it does more with a small budget than a lot of 40 million dollar films have done with all that money lately. I can only imagine what these guys could do given time and money.

I recommend this very highly for action fans.
