The plot of Point Blank, summarized, invites parody (rookie agent goes undercover as surfer to catch bank robbers). The result is surprisingly effective.
Great review. This movie is in my top 20 greats of all time. Many critics emphasize that this film is "dumb", but you didn't. You acknowledge its tendency to be ridiculed, but you spotted its strenghts. You know how to enjoy a well made action thriller. Two thumbs way up to your review!

Lmao. Nice find. You'd think he'd have gotten that right since he reviewed this over nine years after the flick came out.
