I just watched the movie, Target List

Dr. John Reizer

Target List (1h 55m) PG-13

Recently, members of Target List’s creative team had an opportunity to view the film for the first time.

After months of production meetings, script revisions, casting selections, four weeks of filming, and so many other challenges that go into making a full feature movie, I got the chance to watch the story MJ Palo and I wrote based on my 2019 novel, The Target List.

As I watched the production with my wife and daughter, I experienced several emotions. I felt joy, sadness, excitement, and gratitude.

I felt joy because of how satisfying it was for me to see something that I had worked so hard on finally come to fruition.

I felt sad because of how close we all came to not making the movie after I was targeted last year, became ill, and nearly lost my life in the process.

I felt excited because millions of people around the world are going to have an opportunity to watch a very unique cinematic production that will enlighten and entertain them.

I felt gratitude and appreciation for all the people who worked tirelessly on the movie and made what I believe to be an incredible film.

I am just going to come out and write it; Target List is a fantastic movie. I knew from reading and rereading the lengthy script that we wrote a hell of a good story. But until you see the movie with your own eyes, you don’t know how things are going to turn out.

Spoiler Alert!

I am not giving away any of the movie’s secrets, sorry! In all honesty, I think Target List is amazing, and I am not alone in my opinion.

Keep in mind that post-production is less than 30 percent complete. There are no video or post-sound effects in the film’s rough cut. The music score has yet to be written and added to the production. There are seven to eight months of additional post-production work to be done in the studio to polish Target List before its world premiere in 2023. But even at 30 percent finished, the movie has the feel and look of something special.

Get your popcorn ready, and stay tuned for more information on the project. We can’t wait to share this movie with the world!

    A lot of emotions stirring there, John. Your pride and joy shines through!

    And I concur with you. It is an absolutely fabulous movie! Being a part of the team, I was permitted to watch and give my opinion. I just finished working on my test audience questions for MJ. And the movie was better than I even imagined it would be, even without it being fully done.

    I can’t wait for the world to see it either. It is filled with danger that includes lots of fun and excitement. And it delivers a punch of a message!

    Plus, the rapport between the characters is amazing. You can’t help but fall in love with them! I can’t say, “Wow,” enough times!

    It was meant to be, John! 🙂

      Yes, it is a nice feeling to be a part of a very talented creative team. I believe our film has a chance to do a lot of great things in the future.

    Recently I reread my copy of your book, to get ready for the film, I can not wait till it comes out

      I believe most moviegoers, Kenneth, will find Target List suspenseful, and fast-paced. There are moments of levity in the film that break the mounting tension which continues to rebuild throughout the production.

      In one hour and fifty minutes of nonstop cinematic drama, the audience is led to the unexpected twist ending.

      We are so excited to share the film with everyone, but it’s going to take a little time yet.
