You might be reminded of Jean-Jacques Beineix's 1981 thriller "Diva," which also involves crooked cops and Metro chases. But you need never have seen "Diva" to be captivated by the exhilarating Point Blank.

Put aside any hang-ups you may have about subtitles. As action flicks go, Point Blank is right on target.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
A breakneck French thriller, Point Blank is so ridiculously successful at keeping its momentum going - and keeping the audience tense with suspense - that it's likely to leave you with your heart pounding, gasping for breath.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
Frantic, violent and unrelenting, it is all of a piece, its tightly packed storytelling making cassoulet of its own implausibilities and familiar terrain covering a web of political and institutional conspiracy.

If you lop off the closing credits of Fred Cavayé's preposterously exciting - and pleasingly preposterous - French-language thriller, the running time is a mere 80 minutes. Not since "Run Lola Run" has the term been used more aptly.

It's customary to describe this kind of thriller as "adrenaline-fueled," but this is the first time apart from "Pulp Fiction" I can recall there being an actual shot of adrenaline on screen. Samuel uses it to wake Hugo from his coma, then kind of wishes he hadn't.

What the movie doesn't do, oddly, is leave much of an impression after it's over.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
A high-wire act that almost slips as it edges perilously closer and closer to the edge of improbability. But it never does.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
The twists and turns involve a high-level assassination, corrupt cops, squint-inducing violence and plenty of fearlessness.
