Point Blank does not disappoint. I gave it a score of 10. Not because it was one of the best films I've ever seen, but because it entertained, it thrilled, and it surprised. Why bother dissecting a film that leaves you feeling that way?

The movie is done well, within limits of it's genre. Plenty of fights, running, shooting, blood, etc.
Keeps the audience tense till the very end. I was expecting something better than that: some class, some elegance which sometimes come from

Keeps the audience tense till the very end. I was expecting something better than that: some class, some elegance which sometimes come from French action movies, 'La Femme Nikita', for example.. Maybe I want too much. But again, every cliché of action movie is here: the villains and the heroes; the hero appears at the very last moment (how?!); the hero (un-trained) survives serious beating from professionals; and, of course, happy ending. I am sure I will forget about this movie sooner than finishing typing this little piece...

It's a fun and frantic movie in the vein of "Tell No One." The lead actor (from TNO) and actress (from "Sex & Lucia") are both excellent, but the criminal turned "buddy" in this set-up flick is the real find in the cast.

This is a interesting, fast paced and very enjoyable thriller that shouldn't be missed.. Clever plot, interesting characters, good acting, lots of suspense and great chase scenes.

It's been a while since I have seen so much running in a movie. I see where some critic get the Run Lola Run comparism. But even after being narrated up-to-date, I still don't think I could tell you everyone's motivation for all the running and shooting. The two main runners for their lives -- one even hops up from critic care and starts running holding in his insides -- are both good solid actors when they get time to act. A simpler evil chaser would have made all the running much better. Expand
