Audience Reviews for Point Blank

    A movie that is light on plot and characters, but still makes for good entertainment. It won't make you think deeply, but Point Blank has more than its fair share of chases and thrills to keep you engaged.

    I've never been one to watch movies that aren't filmed in English, but this may well be the film that changes my mind; watching something with subtitles is a whole different experience and shouldn't put someone off watching this. "Point Blank" is a wonderfully acted, action packed and twist filled film, with some great chase scenes. If more Hollywood movies were like this I'd be a happy man.

    This movie is absolutely fantastic to an, almost, absurd degree. I may be over-rating it but I really loved this movie. It maintains an absolutely incredible pace from beginning to end. No scene runs too long and it's full of tense moments and some great action/chase sequences. The story, while unoriginal, is incredibly effective and when the bad guys finally got fucked in the end, it felt really satisfying as a viewer. As far as thrillers go, this has to be among the best I've seen in years. Again, I may be over-rating it but I thought this movie was tremendous.

    Totally absorbing tale that grips you from the beginning to the end. Caught in the middle as a pawn between the gangsters and rogue police responsible for an assassination of a political element, Samuel (Gilles Lellouche), a male nurse's aid on the verge of being promoted gets into a world of unexpected confusion for not only him, but for his wife Nadia (Elena Anaya) and unborn child..(being held hostage!?!?!) in this mess. As the story unravels, you experience pain, anguish, and suspense as a desperate man holds onto his sanity in an insane situation. Please see this!
