Movie Info

Seemingly mundane Walter Lloyd (Gene Hackman) confronts a world of espionage after his wife (Gayle Hunnicutt) is kidnapped while she vacations in France. Walter and son Chris (Matt Dillon) immediately set off to find her, and Chris soon learns that Dad is much more than he appears, being a former CIA agent and all. This suspense-thriller is from Arthur Penn, director of Bonnie and Clyde and Night Moves among others.

    Not one of Arthur Penn's best. I'm not sure if it was the director's goal to make this feel like "The French Connection" or "Bullet" but "Target" doesn't hit the bullseye and fails on every level. Not good.

    so so action flick with gene hackman and matt dillon playing a father son role. hackman is great to watch and dillon isn't far off but it's the thin stretched out plot that lets them down. oh and the 80's soundtrack music is funny
