2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 30 2013
Format: DVD
A terrific late 60s thriller. The story is very simple – a man (Lee Marvin) is betrayed by his wife and best friend who
shoot him and leave him for dead during a robbery they all commit together. Marvin spends the rest of the film
getting revenge, as well as trying to get his $93,000 back.

But where the story itself is simple, Boorman brings a dazzling array of stylistic conceits, many more normally at home in European art films
of the day, than in a Hollywood tough guy revenge story. Echoes of Godard, Bergman, Truffaut, and Antonioni - just to name a few – pull
one to look deeper into this story, the loose, sometimes confusing and elliptical structure leading us inside the character's alienation.

There have been many films starring the 'lone tough guy' but this is one about just how alone and lonely it is to be that guy, and how
pointless being an individualist can seem in a modern world, where even crime is run not by street-tough hoods, but by corporate types in
suits. "The Organization" here isn't the Mafia, but might well be any Fortune 500 company, and indeed the film acknowledges the darkly comic
absurdism of Marvin's quest for $93,000 from men to whom that kind of money is chump change.

In that sense it's a beautiful, dream-like study of the old ideal of the loner coming up against a modern world where the loner is no longer
the hero, or even the anti-hero. He's simply, sadly an anachronism.

The WB DVD transfer is pretty solid, but this film really screams out for a good blu-ray upgrade.

Format: VHS Tape
Most people view this as being a classic however in my view it does not quite meet those standards. Having read the novels for such a long time and watching the action unfold to be precise disapointment was one word and awe another. Watching Marvin as Walker a thief who plays himself as wanting no blood on his hands he charges through the criminal under world with an unmatched temper. Seeking out the friend who double crossed and the wife who became his lover. Playing off as a Parker character he does it great through the acting but the action is missing a few pages. As the cold blooded Walker he does not even kill anyone rather he just forces them around. Which did not settle well with me as a reader of the novels as stated above this lead to me believe that Hollywood wanted a movie which would not offend. It makes me beg the question of why produce is anyway. High caliber actors and a great assortment of characters dot this story of a man seeking his claims but why edit the violence from the novel? Making his character like a declawed kitten however he is they do however redeem themselves. Marvin walks into a bathroom ambush and walks out leaving two bleeding and injured hitmen behind. On top of that he managed to play the character to a near Gibson like... well if you can call it that standard. Boorman directed this and he did an okay job there are things which could have been improved. Stylish film noir does not quite fit this as a tag line rather it's more of a PI story laced with the criminal elements over the noir factors. Get Payback done better and with a more cold static feeling.

If you liked "Point Blank" then check out the books written by Richard Stark (actually Donald Westlake) who also wrote the Dortmunder books ("The Hot Rock"). The character is named Parker, and the books are wonderful. "Point Blank" captures the characters' shark-like personality, he doesn't register your existence unless it affects the heist, or his appetites at the time. "Payback" is not even worth typing a sentence about. The Parker paperbacks are somewhat hard to find, but are worth the effort, find as many as you can. There is also a series of re-prints, titles have been changed.
