Lethal Target (2001) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
The first time I watched this I thought it was extremely boring, but I have to admit that the more times I see it, the more it grows on me. It’s the story of a marshall (C.C. Costigan) who’s in a women’s prison on some asteroid for some reason (she’s innocent of whatever charges, of course). It turns out that there’s a spaceship somewhere that was conducting experiments in inter-dimensional travel, and they’ve brought back a menacing alien. The powers that be decide to send our imprisoned marshall to investigate, in exchange for a reduction in her sentence. Yeah, okay, it doesn’t make much sense that they’d send a prison inmate instead of a genuine commando, but who knows, maybe they’re really short of regular commandos in the future. Besides, this way you get to see the women in the prison in their tattered little garments with lots of upskirt and through-the-armhole shots. So be happy.
Once aboard the spaceship, the menacing alien is pretty much forgotten about for a long time as our hero has sex with some guy on the ship, and the evil genius doctor in charge of the project (Kim Dawson) has sex with some other girls.
Towards the end, we finally do get to see the alien - and if you’ve seen the movie Xtro II you’ve pretty much seen all of this before since a whole lot of footage is borrowed from that movie. And a lot of the footage from this movie is borrowed to the movie Fatal Conflict. But, what the hey.
Overall this movie can be pretty slow moving at times, but it definitely succeeds in establishing a nice mood which is the reason I like these sorts of movies. There’s fairly plentiful T&A, just in case I’ve left any doubt. So if you’re a fan of this sort of stuff, give it a try.
