Synopsis
Nursing student and expectant father Samuel (Gilles Lellouche) enters into a frantic race against time to save his pregnant wife from kidnappers in this taut suspense thriller from the writers and directors of the hit 2007 nail-biter POUR ELLE (which was remade in the U.S. as THE NEXT THREE DAYS). His wife abducted as he watches helplessly, Samuel receives a phone call stating he has three hours to reach a local hospital and free a man under police protection. As the clock starts to tick, Samuel rushes to complete his mission and save his family.

Movie Critics
Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "It takes your breath away right from the opening credits with a 100 mph motorbike sequence through Paris' streets and tunnels; the pace doesn't let up for the 80 minutes that follow."
Richard Mowe (22 Jul 2011, )
Chicago Sun-Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "POINT BLANK is an ingenious thriller....[It has] a rare economy and unity."
Roger Ebert (10 Aug 2011, )
Film Comment
"Gilles Lellouche convincingly improvises as action hero, Gerard Lanvin chews it up amusingly as the epitome of police corruption, and Roschdy Zem leaves the most lasting impression as the resuscitated patient..."
Laura Kern (1 Jul 2011, )
Hollywood Reporter
"The heart-pounding French thriller POINT BLANK is a high-wire act..."
Kirk Honeycutt (27 Jul 2011, )
Los Angeles Times
"POINT BLANK will leave you breathless. Unfolding at a blistering clip from its slam-bang opening through its bravura close, it grips you at frame one at doesn't let go."
Kenneth Turan (29 Jul 2011, )
New York Times
"POINT BLANK is an exhilarating adrenaline rush with breakneck momentum..."
Stephen Holden (29 Jul 2011, )
Sight and Sound
"Lellouche copes well with the athletic demands of the role, and his pained you've-got-to-be-kidding look as crisis follows crisis brings an element of wit to the proceedings."
Trevor Johnston (1 Jul 2011, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "Gallic whiz Fred Cavaye's crash-bang-wallop kidnap thriller never lets up from the get-go -- and it starts with a chase."
Matt Glasby (1 Jul 2011, )
Wall Street Journal
"[P]reposterously exciting -- and pleasingly preposterous....The climactic chase is complicated by a city-wide crime wave that turns into a crime tsunami."
(29 Jul 2011, )
