Tyler @ Pulptone - This Week's HUMAN TARGET Review

by Tyler Weaver.  Follow me on Twitter.

"In the STAR TREK universe, there is a general (very general) rule of thumb: the even number films are the good ones, while the odd-numbered (with the exception of Abrams' reboot) suck. HUMAN TARGET seems to be of a similar installment-quality give and take.

The plot, as with every episode, is straightforward enough: A reformed antiquities thief played by Sam Huntington (Jimmy Olsen from SUPERMAN RETURNS), turns on his compatriots in crime, and flees to a monastery in Quebec, where he writes letters to the woman whose love turned him to the side of good. But, the best intentions never quite work out that way, as Sam Fisher (interesting choice of name for SPLINTER CELL fans), played by the ever-reliable William Mapother (Ethan Rom of LOST fame) and crew track him down and head for the monastery.  Of course, the girl hires Chance and co. to protect said reformed antiquities thief.

Mix in a bit of a "lost ark" treasure, a subplot with the absolute pinnacle of Guerrero bad-assness (more later), and great performances (as always) from the three leads, and you've got the makings of a damn fine hour of brain-off evening entertainment."
