Critic Reviews for Human Target Season 1

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (18)

Valley's Christopher Chance is hard to resist as a devil-may-care hero-for-hire who charms and disarms before moving on to another mission: improbable. Easy come, easy go, easily watched.

The actors, including Valley, are but cogs in the wheel of suspense. Someone needs to hold the guns and steer the barreling train.

Jan 17, 2010 | Full Review…

Happily, the producers honor the "comic" as well as the "book" parts of Chance's heritage, and at times "Human Target" seems equal parts comedy and drama.

Jan 17, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Valley has an easy, rugged masculine quality that feels in short supply these days from most leading men, and he's believable and likable as this talented, versatile, nutty vigilante.

If this isn't a big hit, I'll turn in my critic credentials and join a Tibetan monastery.

It took us the entire first season to make connections with the characters, but alas true connections were made. This finale left us surprised and looking forward to the next season.

Jul 17, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Overall, this was an interesting [season finale] mostly because of the flashback scenes and the guest stars. Plus it ends with a bit of a cliffhanger.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Due to the lack of any emotional connection with any of the characters, this premiere episode was just an action flick where we get to watch Christopher Chance and team do their work to get the job done.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Every element of "Human Target", from its mission-of-the-week format to its incredibly-cheesy opening credits, will remind viewers of the right age of the kind of mindless escapism that was far-more-common in the '70s and '80s.

Jul 13, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Human Target was a step above the ordinary action hour; it was engaging enough on its own terms, it had enough character seeds that there's something for future episodes to harvest .

Audience Reviews for Human Target: Season 1

  • Dec 16, 2013
    A truly underrated show that had one of the most clever premises, memorable set of characters, and some of the funniest dialogue I've heard in a television show. Even if it was really far fetched. But I believe that was the idea.
