Human Target Review: "Lockdown"
This week on Human Target, action and suspense was the name of the game. On Lockdown, Chance had to help a weapons engineer escape the evil crutches of his corrupt supervisor.
We have been waiting for more action and this week’s episode overly did it. Chance begins by having to parachute and land on a building. Say what?
Not that this feat wouldn’t be difficult enough for the most talented skydiver, but he had to land on a two foot section of the roof. Impossible, yet Chance somehow manages to complete this without even breaking a sweat! This is going a bit too far!
An even more unbelievable part of this episode, when Chance detonates the water cooler bomb that was strategically placed at the exact spot he would need it…
How did Winston know exactly where to put the cooler? How did Chance know he would need this so called bomb to kill numerous men waiting on the other side of the elevator door?
Not a realistic storyline, but we guess this is what the writers are aiming at. Human Target is an over the edge, heart pounding, thrill ride! One that keeps you guessing and wanting to see what Chance will come up with next. This is why we like Human Target!
We enjoyed seeing Chance create a pulley just in time to escape down the elevator shaft, then somehow manage to kill Mr. Crease waiting at the bottom. Now this seems more like his style… making Chance accomplish something using his own quick wit!
Who is Christopher Chance’s old boss was and why he is trying to find him. We are sure his intentions with Chance are corrupt, and look forward to seeing how this plot unfolds.
Will this old boss join the team or become more of an enemy of Christopher Chance? We guess he is more of a foe than friend!
Until next week’s adventure, we leave you with a few of our favorite Human Target quotes:
Chance: Martin you're starting to freak out, I need you to calm down a little bit.
Martin: I don't think it's very reasonable to ask a sane human being to jump out of a building, and expect him to remain calm. | permalink
Martin: I can't imagine a guy like you running from anybody.
Chance: You never met my old boss. | permalink
Chance: Oh an Aunt Linda.
Winston: Uh uh, calling in the cavalry is an Uncle Dan.
Chance: No, calling in the cavalry is an Aunt Linda; I don't even know who Uncle Dan is. | permalink
Chance: The shoots toast. Looks like we go to plan B.
Martin: What's plan B?
Chance: The stairs.
Martin: The Stairs? You don't seem to get it alright. This place is like one giant mouse trap. | permalink
