Another great French Thriller!!
this movie will keep your eyes open and sit on the edge of your chair
once it starts. i often consider the good french action thrillers are
the most creative and original, that's why Hollywood keeps copycatting
and adapting from the french movies one after another once there are
new good french thriller movies in the market. "the next three days(not
a bad adaptation)" and "the tourist(just horrible!)" are the most
recent examples adapted from the french originals.
this 'point blank' is a great thriller from beginning to the end. the
chases from the hospital to the subway station and the chaos in the
hospital and the police central are just exceptionally directed,
edited, acted. i was sleepy before watching this movie, but once it
started, the heavy eyelids just became light and wide open.
i didn't quite like the final scene. it seems a bit unnecessary but at
the same time quite necessary, and that's a funny thought.
