A Movie “Point Blank” 8/1/11

August 1, 2011

If you want to have breathless 90 minutes, you should watch this movie. It is non stop action and thriller movie with great casts. Since it is a French movie, I could not recognize any actor and actress, but everyone did an excellent job. I would say casting is actually too good (?).  Bad guys look very bad from the beginning of the movie, and an innocent wife looks so pure from the beginning. There is no confusion! “Point Blank” is produced by Cyril Colbeau-Justin and Jean-Baptiste Dupont, staring Jean-Baptiste Dupont, Roschdy Zem, Gerard Lanvin and Elena Anaya. Lellouche plays Samuel, a nurse-aid, was working at a hospital when the suspence started. His pregnant wife (Anaya-her big eyes tell the story!)) is kidnapped in front of his very eyes at their home after the hospital incident. Knocked unconscious, he comes to and discovers that a dangerous criminal named Sartet (Zem) is responsible, and if he’s ever to see his wife again, he must do Sartet’s order. Samuel quickly becomes acting like a gang member and avoids horrible danger to save his wife and their un-born daughter. His ordinal day suddenly turned into a gangster life, and he is very good at that. This movie has some twisted stories, but pretty simple as a good action movie. I loved it. I forgot I was thirsty. I did not sip any drink during the movie.
