Fred Cavayé’s last film, Pour Elle, was a tight and well-made thriller which was almost totally derailed by its catastrophic American remake The Next Three Days. We do hope the same won’t happen to his latest effort. Exhilarating, fast-paced and only a little bit unbelievable, Point Blank is exactly what people who liked Taken should be watching instead – it’s an action film, yes, but it’s far more than macho drivel.
Pretty much au fait with your ‘Cinema Du Look’ directors? Yeah, we thought not. This is what happens if you spend your days in your worst pants, watching re-runs of Dragon Ball Z (rock the dragon) and drinking Tango. Thank God you have us and Cheat Sheet Tuesday, eh?
Did you ever wonder what Indiana Jones would have been like if he’d been a bit more French, significantly more female, and pursued by an inconveniently re-animated pterodactyl? Lucky for everyone then, that The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec is twisting its quick-witted moustachioed ways into cinemas nearby.
