3.0 out of 5 stars French take on 'Die Hard' that really tries too Hard
This is a French crime thriller which has borrowed a bit from the `Die Hard' franchise. It tells the story of trainee nurse Samuel Pierret (Gilles Lellouche), whose wife is very heavily pregnant. One night a man is taken into the Hospital after he has suffered a stomach laceration and been run over by a (quite fast) motorbike. He is on a ventilator, and not in a good way...

“Oh my good lord, it’s been said stupid does what stupid say, that was my saying, Can I Tell
You, this Has Nothing To Do With Any, Okay Any Die Hard Movie, you should stop watching movies,
(It’ll help others)I can’t understand people saying that to a movie like this, for one thing, there was no
Dam pregnancy in any, “Again” Die Hard that I’ve seen, when people make up stories they must feel very
prouder than not with themselves, but with the fact they’ve told a completely different story than
the original, “Point Blank” is not a crime thriller by any stretch of the imagination, it’s about a Very
Desperate man on his own quest to save his pregnant wife from some very bad people, that happen to
enter his normal everyday life of peace, with bad police in pursuit of a Art thief, who happen to see the
killing of a prominent figure, this is a very fast paced movie at only one Hour an twenty four min,
it remind me of Red Eye” with Cillian Murphy” an Rachel McAdams” closer to the end you're on edge
hoping if he’ll make it before the movie ends, great thriller,
French With English Dub 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.
Runtime 84 Min.
Widescreen 2.35:1
Very Very Entertaining Movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars French take on 'Die Hard' that really tries too Hard, Nov. 2 2011

(HALL OF FAME)    (TOP 10 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Point Blank (Bilingual) [Import] (DVD)
This is a French crime thriller which has borrowed a bit from the `Die Hard' franchise. It tells the story of trainee nurse Samuel Pierret (Gilles Lellouche), whose wife is very heavily pregnant. One night a man is taken into the Hospital after he has suffered a stomach laceration and been run over by a (quite fast) motorbike. He is on a ventilator, and not in a good way. Someone cuts the life saving tube and he starts to suffocate. Samuel spots it just in time and saves the mans life.

That was a big mistake; this guy is a wanted high calibre thief - Hugo Sartet (Roscidy Zem). His compatriots have followed Samuel home and then decide to take his wife hostage and force him to `spring' their boss. Samuels wife has been told she is in danger of losing the baby and has to spend the rest of her pregnancy lying down, so this brutal interruption sends Sam a bit desperate. He decides to do all it takes to get her back.

He goes back into work (after a night shift) and puts a rather crude plan into operation, meanwhile the Gendarmes have taken fingerprints from the unknown guy and are heading back to ask some pesky questions. The cops are also investigating the murder of an uber rich business guy, but are the matters linked?

Well this tries to avoid formulaic plot developments, and has some brilliant touches. I liked the French police driving Alfa Romeos. There is an however, and that is the number of plot holes. If you just go with the flow, then this is an excellent action movie, with full throttle action, double crosses and plot twists, but the contrivances just took something away for me.

I am a big fan of World Cinema and especially love European Cinema and I think Director Fred Cavaye has done an above average job, but some of the artifice he uses means that this is hard to take that seriously. If you want to suspend belief for 84 mins, with full on action, some blood and guts and some really rather good performances from all involved, then this will tick your boxes, if you thought `Anything For Her' was a bit of a stretch, then best to avoid.
