Point Blank

Genre: Foreign Language; Starring: Gilles Lellouche; Director: Fred Cavay ; Release Date Limited: 07/22/2011; Status: In Season; Runtime (in minutes): 84; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Magnolia Pictures

A French take on American cops-and-chases movies, Point Blank, a hurtling thriller directed by former fashion photographer Fred Cavayé is jammed with stylish sensibility and missing sense.

Putting the unborn child at risk is a nasty touch. B
