Point Blank

Point Blank

  Point Blank Run time 90 minutes Not for children. If I weren’t on a scale of best out of five, I’d give this a six. Brilliantly directed by Fred Cavayé, this starts out with a bang and picks up speed from there. Because it’s not an American big studio film, it is pretty much […]
