“Point Blank” is a remake of a French film that was released in 2010 with the same name. This action film stars Anthony Mackie who was seen in the Avengers franchise as Sam Wilson or the falcon, Frank Grillo who played the role of Brock Rumlow or the Crossbones. Apart from these Marvel feature actors, the movie also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Teyonah Parris and many more. The action thriller has a lot of cliffhangers and a good plotline.
Apart from all this, the movie is not as thrilling as we expected it to be. With Netflix’s reputation, the movies released are a hit overnight. Point Blank was not one of them. With a rut action routine and with everything going super fast in the movie, the story felt a little pointless.
The movie is just a mediocre remake of every action movie ever. The movie has everything from shootouts to fight scenes to cops and car chases. But none of the scenes even remotely do justice to the acting capability of this star cast.
Also, the movie had a fine background watch but nothing that will keep you hooked to the screen. The movie starts with an action sequence which does grip the audience but is something that we see in almost every movie. The scenes seem to drag a bit and the comic sequences appear all of a sudden. There are a lot of missteps in the movie that make it average.
The movie relied heavily on the Marvel cast in the movie which was not sufficient to make the movie a hit. They can do only so much with their actions if the script is not up to the mark. Point Blank can be said to be a one time watch.
