Editorial Reviews

In TARGET, Chris Lloyd (Dillon) does NOT get along with his father Walter. Walter is too careful, cautious, and boring to Chris, and never tries anything new, and Chris had to live by the same standards when he was growing up. But when his mother is kidnapped while in Europe, to Chris's confusion, Walter suddenly turns into a man of action and springs to life.

gene hackman and josef sommer are pros and bring the other amateurs along for the ride in fine style. almost campy, but suspenseful and entertaining at the same time. The theme of "dad is a boring twit, oops, he is speaks three languages, kicks [...], and handles a gun and a car like a CIA grandmaster", is terrific ego boost for old fathers. I only logged on to buy a dvd copy. unbelievable that it is not released in that format.

Ever since this movie came out, it has been one of my favorites. I watch it once a year or so, and enjoy it each time. This is an action/suspense movie with spy elements as well. The balance between action and suspense scenes is just right and the interaction between the father (Gene Hackman) and son (Matt Dillon) is very entertaining along the way - the son finds out the father isn't such an old fuddy-duddy after all!

The movie does start out pretty slowly, but the beginning does a good job of introducing the main characters and sets up the tense yet humorous relationship between father and son.

The plot of the movie is very good except that the ending, while being exciting and suspenseful, is a bit contrived (a little suspension of disbelief is needed here). The acting, with the exception of a couple minor characters, is also top-notch. The characters are believable and seem natural.

Finally, I'd just like to mention that this movie has a couple of great car chases that are a blast to watch, and seem plausible, unlike some movies where the chase scenes are totally unrealistic. Plus the fact that they are in Europe, with European vehicles makes them feel different than the standard fare.

The DVD itself has no special features, but the price is right. The video and audio quality are good (typical 80's movie quality), and are better than my laserdisc copy and much better than my old VHS copy. However, they did leave in the film change markers; so you have been warned if that bothers you.

If you are at all self-conscious about appearing to be a frumpy, irrelevant anachronism to your clueless teenage or slightly older offspring, you will get no small satisfaction out of the change in perception that occurs in this film. It also allows for the > 45 yr old viewer to indulge in an odd nostalgia as you are reimmersed in the international tensions and intrigues of the Cold War from what is now a bygone era. And it is a very decent suspense/action film that would only disappoint one looking for the fun, campiness, and hypertech of a James Bond Cold war adventure. It will come as no surprise for most movie buffs that Gene Hackman is perfect for yet another role. A young Matt Dillon and the rest of the crew pull their weight as well.

Gene Hackman is one of my favorite actors, and he doesn't let me down on this one. Actually, I think this is one of his best films. He sounds pretty natural speaking several European languages as if he's always spoke them. There's great action in the movie, great intrigue, and suspense. I love the European setting as well. The movie progresses with a crescendo intensity towards climax. I stole this movie from my cousin and kept looking for the DVD until I found it in Amazon, and here it is.

Overall a good film with just enough action and intrigue to keep you interested. Good points: gives those of us who fought in the "Cold War" a look back at the days of the Berlin Wall, East Germany, and the cat and mouse games where no one could be trusted. Bad points: the ending seems disjointed, rushed, and leaves more questions than answers.

Slow to develop, sometimes wooden acting, but what can I say? I like the movie. Maybe it's because Hackman's character Duke isn't cut from the same cloth as Bond or Bourne - Duke is more about competence and craft. Anyway, I enjoyed the show well enough to buy it 20 yhears after seeing it on VHS...

Those of us who are old guys, like to see someone gain the respect of out young son. That's what Gene Hackman does when his son is surprised that his "boring" dad has a background in espionage and negotiates a crafty search for kidnapped family member.

A young Matt Dillon is the center of questions and actions in this 80s action action thriller. When his mother mysteriously disappears on a trip to Paris, a young man finds to his surprise that stodgy old Dad has unsuspected depths and talents.
