Excellent Pacing Makes for Great Suspense
7 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This film delivers suspense. You rarely notice the pacing in a movie unless it's either exceptionally bad or exceptionally good--Targeting does it exceptionally well. The premise of the film about a soldier returning home from Afghanistan only to be thrust back into harm's way is absolutely fascinating. It's also relevant to the seemingly daily reports of terrorism we see in the news every day.

Also fascinating was the lead role of the soldier going to a woman. It allowed the film makers to explore the issues surrounding troops returning from war in an entirely novel way, one that I hope other film makers will tackle. Kudos to this group for taking a chance and making a truly unique experience for fans of indie film!
