Exclusive: Point Blank Clip
Never answer the phone!

23 May 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

French director Fred Cavayé has been on Hollywood's radar for a while now. His new thriller Point Blank offers plenty of the same ingredients as his last, Pour Elle: a damsel in distress, a race against time and a man increasingly out of depth. That one was remade with Russell Crowe as The Last Three Days and nobody would be surprised to see this go the same way.

This new clip sets the movie up neatly. Hospital nurse Samuel (Tell No One's Gilles Lellouche) has woken up to discover that his pregnant wife has been kidnapped by some shady underworld types. They'll only spare her life if he hands over a patient in his care (Roschdy Zem), and not because they want to tend back to full health. All in three hours. Zut alors.


If this was Liam Neeson, we'd expect a lot more by way of gravelly threats about his particular set of skills. Instead, Samuel must make do with what he has to hand which, at first glance, ain't too much.

 

Watch the trailer in full here
. Point Blank is out on June 10.
