Target Number One (Most Wanted) tells the true story of a Canadian journalist, Victor Malarek (Josh Hartnett) who investigates a imprisonment of Daniel Leger (Antonie Oliver Pilon) who is falsely accused in a drug smuggling case and lands in the Thai jail.
Based on the true events, the Daniel Roby directed Target Number One became an interesting watch right from the beginning as the protagonist found something fishing in the imprisonment of Daniel Leger. The story switches between the past and present of how Daniel Leger meeting with a drug lord and how he actually he lands up in the Thai jail while the story of Victor runs in parallel as he convinces his boss to allow him investigate the case.

The good part of watching Target Number One is that it gives you plenty adrenalin rush and action sequences that will keep you entertained from the beginning till the end. The screenplay looses the rhythm in between but gathers the pace later. Direction is good. It will be really challenging to adapt the story and turn it into reel. Story is amazing. Cinematography and editing are fantastic.
Performances by Josh Hartnett and Antonie Oliver Pilon leads the movie. Both of them play their part effortlessly. I felt Target Number One was under-rated movie which was not promoted aggressively. The energy and effort put into this film has to appreciated and turn it into a good watch. Nevertheless , it is a nice crime thriller with wonderful story which is definitely worth watching. Go for it. 3/5
Target Number One is currently streaming on Zeeplex.
