Very great action and suspense.
½ February 3, 2016
It is a protracted chase scene, which quickly becomes fairly tiresome.

An excellent action film
½ June 7, 2015
One of the best action thrillers of its genre. It moves so fast, yet carries much in it's lean 84 minutes, you'll want to watch it again. Love it. Never one dull moment or an unnecessary scene, you'll want to watch it again - it;s that exciting and fast. Think of it as a better Taken, much much better.

Fast paced French action thriller about a male nurse forced on the run when his pregnant fiancee is kidnapped. Short running time means all the unnecessary fat has been trimmed from this quite realistic chase movie which is a nice change. A good way to spent 80 minutes.

Fast and exciting thriller. Jump scares but nothing gratuitous. A good one!

this is a "bourne like" chase crime film that gives you the adrenaline rush while watching. With a very interesting plot about police corruption, the intensity remains still that gives this movie a top notch class on its own.
½ June 27, 2014
An interesting French re-take on a much familiar/clichéd plot. Gripping for most part, except for a couple of 'makes-no-sense' coincidences and the stretched ending. However, the impeccable acting/tight editing/'no-cgi' action easily make up for that.

Very good action film! Gilles Lellouche is outstanding! A very different role then he had in "Tell No One". He's just an everyday guy caught in the wrong place @ the wrong time just trying to save his family. The plot & dialogue are superior & the reason it's believable!
½ March 13, 2014
No-bullshit action thriller that delivers the adrenaline from start to finish, which is just over 80 minutes. Anyone having a nonsense prejudice against European/French cinema as unapproachable or pretentious has got to watch this film. And anyone looking for a fine piece of action cinema, or an alternative to a couple strong cups of coffee, will find it here as well.

Director Fred Cavaye's Point Blank, Is A Fast, Ferocious, Tense And Gripping Thriller, Which Does Not Fail The Genre.
It's The Classic Man On The Run Story, That We May Be Sick To Death Seeing, But This Is One That Executes The Plot Excellently.

Samuel Pierret (Gilles Lellouche), Is A Trainee Nurse, Who Just So Happens To Save The Life Of Safe Cracker, Hugo Sartet (Roschdy Zem),
When An Attempt On Sartet Life Is Made In Hospital. The Next Day His Pregnant Wife, Nadia (Elena Anaya) Is Kidnapped By A Band Of Mysterious Masked Men.
Samuel Receives A Phone Call To Get Sartet Out Of The Hospital, Before Another Attempt On His Life Occurs, And He Has 3 Hours To Get Sartet To Safety.
Hunting Samuel & Sartet Down Is Commandant Patrick Werner (Gerard Lanvin), Who Is On The Case Of The Murder Of A Wealthy Business Owner, Who Sartet Supposedly Killed.

The Film Fits Into The Thriller Genre Excellently, With It's Great Fast-Paced Gripping Introduction, Which Features Great Cinematography, Great Music And It's Great Atmosphere.
The Pace Tends To Slow Down Until The Kidnap, Which Is Done Without A Soundtrack, & Very Shaky Hand Camera Shots To Provide Realism. The Fast Pace Remains Throughout The Movie.
This Film Above Many Others & So Like Some Others Lacks In Instrumental Score Slightly Adding More Realism Throughout. With This As Well As The Great Performances From It's Main Cast,
And Direction From Fred Cavaye, This Is One Thriller, That Real Movie Fans Will Enjoy, As It Sets The Right Atmosphere To Make A Realistic & Tense Film.

½ December 27, 2013
great chase scenes and plot, with wonderful acting too
December 22, 2013
From start to finish, this is one of the more solid thrillers I've seen in a good while...its well written, well paced, well acted...overall, there really isn't very much to say is wrong...I suppose my only qualms with it is that it wraps up rather neatly and that it doesn't really require very much thought or effort to watch outside of the subtitles (its a French production)...overall, its a great way to spend 84 minutes
½ December 14, 2013
A great French film with fine acting and thrilling chase scenes that tells a story about a man trying to find his pregnant wife in exchange for one of his hospital patients.
October 20, 2013
Fast paced French noir thriller about a nurse who frantically tries to rescue his pregnant wife as they are both unwittingly caught up in an intricate (and deadly) conspiracy.
