Point Blank 2019 Review:-
If your cinematic wish list includes watching a steel-faced Marcia Gay Harden blast a big guy named Cheetah with a shotgun, then, by all means, check out “Point Blank.” Anybody outside of this niche constituency can skip this flaccid.
Netflix action flick — including fans of Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo, who ill-advisedly used their vacation from playing Falcon and Crossbones in Marvel movies. Directed by Joe Lynch, the film attempts to graft buddy-comedy antics onto a “we’re running out of time!” plot. Mackie’s Paul is a nurse desperately trying to rescue his very pregnant wife.
Taryn (Teyonah Parris), who was abducted for contrived reasons having to do with Grillo’s character, Abe, a tough guy who may not be as bad as he first appears. There is also something to do with police corruption, which, in case you were wondering, is where Harden comes in.
Paul and Abe find themselves in increasingly ludicrous situations, culminating in an encounter with a diminutive kingpin (Markice Moore) whose dominant trait is an acute case of cinephilia: “It’s Friedkin week on TCM,” he announces at one point, bringing up a director who, unlike Lynch, knows what to do with a camera.
The movie starts off promisingly enough, if only because Mackie is a naturally compelling performer. It’s not long before alarm bells go off especially when a fight in a carwash is set to the Oran “Juice” Jones song “The Rain,”
the first in a series of distractingly preposterous soundtrack selections pulled from what sounds like a “Now That’s What I Call the ’80s” compilation. If anything, the film emanates a startling ineptitude, unable as it is to clear some basic standards of craftsmanship.
