Point Blank

Point Blank ★★★★

Throws you headlong into a wildly inventive realm of abstract action that must have seemed shocking in its day and is still fascinating to watch. But it also demonstrates the hollowness of hyper stylized crime films; the mechanics of its criminal underworld strain credulity. The idea of “The Organization” as corporatized crime is superficial at best, and frankly amounts to little more than juvenilia. Of course, that might be part of this movie’s enduring influence; there would be no “John Wick” without “Walker” first.
