This is actually a movie with a decent plot. Starts out with a bang and keeps on going just like the energizer rabbit. Lungren plays a US Marshall who goes with his mentor to Eastern Europe to abduct Maruska Detmer and bring her back to the US for trial. To be honest this movie has a better plot than Mission Impossible but not as flashy. I first caught it on cable but liked the movie enough to buy it on video tape.

Dolph decided he wanted to make the transistion from action hero to well respected movie star, so he dedicated himself to acting on broadway in an attempt to relearn his trade, this was his first film afterwards, and you can notice the change, Dolph makes the jump from bare chested shenigans to silk suits and his acting stands him at head and shoulders above the rest , this film has at all, set in the beautiful city of prague, it has great scenery, action scenes(including the traditional groping for a gun, while hanging off the edge of a building), love scenes(dolph manages to turn a lesbian onto men) and great cliches, buy it, you'll love it...

I feel bad writing this review, since my less-than-perfect rating mostly reflects my disappointment in having expected a different kind of movie. By most accounts, "Hidden Target" is a pretty good film from Dolph Lundgren's early DTV career...if you're looking for a spy thriller. The film is directed by the maker of First Blood and co-written by one of the scribes behind State of Play; and contained within a low-budget sphere, the quality is there, but it just doesn't deliver the kind of thrills I want to see from the Swedish Superman. This is definitely a movie you'll have to check out for yourself to get the full gist of it, unless you're looking for a genuine action film like me - then you can save your money.

The story: CIA agent Michael Dane (Lundgren, The Expendables) is assigned to apprehend the prime suspect in an ambassador's murder (Maruschka Detmers, The Mambo Kings) in Prague and bring her to America, not knowing that he's about to be thrown into a web political intrigue and treachery.

Considering that the film was made for a slim $7 million and as a cooperative effort among five countries, it looks admirably good.

This wasn't a bad cardboard action movie. Plenty of brawls, gun battles, and road chases. It wasn't a bad plot either. Even if the cardboard action doesn't hold your interest, watching Maruschka Detmers is worth the effort to spend 89 minutes with the film. Great location scenes. Dolph Lundgren is not Dirty Harry, but he comes off well as a Swedish souped-up Gary Cooper. I knocked off one star because of the .45. Hitting a bad guy with a .45 at 30+ yards was too much to swallow.

Hidden Assassin is one of my favourite Dolph movies. In fact, I visited this website after I realised I could not find my worn out copy...(if you have a suggestion as to where I might have misplaced it, please leave a comment). Since I can see the film has not been reviewed in quite some time, I thought I would contribute my three cents.
Anyway, first things fist:

Things I hate about it:
1) the haircuts (Dolph's and the two female leads') - whoever is responsible, should not be allowed to work in movies again...
2) some parts of the dialog, especially those spoken by the bad guys - too cartoonish...

Things I love about it (other then the fact that Dolph is in it, of course):
1) the setting - Prague is charming, no matter how bad the cinematography
2) the story - there is a love triangle, an assassin, a traitor, two countries on a brink of war; almost like a shakspearean tragedy...almost...Still, the story is far better then anything you would typically associate with a Dolph flick...
3) the low key (read: budget) approach to the chases/special effects - in this case, it actualy makes the entire story much more credible...
4) the two female leads - Detmers and Serna are sexy, each in her own, surprisingly different way (at least to this straight female)...

A four star rating is rather high, but I am awarding it based strictly on the value of other movies in the same genre. This film was never an Oscar contender, but sure did what a good movie was supposed to do: for a while, it pleasantly transported me out of the mundane reality and into the exciting world of spies and heroes.
