Wondering why times are missing?

Point Blank

A Parisian nurse sees his pregnant wife kidnapped right before his eyes and suddenly finds himself forced to do the bidding of a dangerous criminal kingpin. As the body count rises, can our reluctant action hero evade both the cops and the criminals in order to rescue his wife? Writer-director Fred (they have Freds in France?) Cavayé last gave us the kinetic race-against-time thriller Anything for Her (remade—badly—as The Next Three Days). But here, he amps up the action to breathless, borderline preposterous, levels. The script isn't what you'd call deep, but this guy knows the meaning of the word velocity. See it now before some American studio screws it up with an inevitable remake. In French with English subtitles. 84 minutes
