Prime Target (1991, David Heavener, Tony Curtis)

Published

on


David Heavener writes, directs, produces and stars in this violent actioner that pays homage to Clint Eastwood’s tough-guy persona. Plain-speaking cop John Bloodstone (Heavener) is suspended for the brutal arrest of several bank robbers. Corrupt politicians and some rogue FBI agents feel Bloodstone is becoming a problem, so they arrange for him to transfer a mafia boss (Tony Curtis) to prison, intending that, in the process, both will meet with a deadly ‘accident.’ The two escape and team up to wreak vengeance upon their persecutors.

Prime Target was the final film role for Robert Reed, who plays Agent Harrington. Reed is best remembered as Mike Brady on television’s The Brady Bunch.
