Air Canada A330-300 airplane is seen flying over Bangkok. The silver-blue livery wasn't introduced until 2004. Air Canada didn't acquire Airbus A330-300 until 1999. Otherwise, the airplane should be either Boeing 747-100/747-200 or 767-200/767-300ER with thick red cheat lines along fuselage and white maple leaf imposed on red tail. See more »
"Target Number One" is a well directed, well acted and compelling Canadian film that everyone should see.
In this drama based on a true story, a Canadian journalist investigates the circumstances surrounding the suspicious arrest of a heroin addict imprisoned in a Thai jail.
Well crafted and unafraid of telling the true story; "Target Number One" dives deep into a frustratingly un-Canadian crime story and really delivers. This is the first Canadian film to be released since Covid-19 hit and it truly is a really good film to kick it off. Josh Hartnett gives probably the performance of his career and Antoine Olivier Pilon is exceptional. The film is never boring nor does it lag, it's the perfect length and pace and I really enjoyed it.
