Point Blank review

Fred Cavayé’s latest tense thriller barely gives you time to breathe...

Making Furiously paced previous effort Anything For Her look like the work of an overmedicated Terence Malick, gallic whiz Fred Cavayé’s crash-bang-wallop kidnap thriller (think Taken to the power of 10) never lets up from the get-go – and it starts with a chase.

Gilles Lellouche is a trainee nurse whose latest patient (Roschdy Zem) is wanted by both cops and robbers; Elena Anaya is his pregnant wife who soon finds herself becoming collateral.

The game of chat and mouse that ensues manages to be gallopingly preposterous and an absolute blast, frequently at the same time.
