Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo are reuniting for a Netflix film that sees them fight crooked cops to save Paul’s (Mackie) wife. Check out the first trailer for Point Blank!
The last time we saw Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo in a film, together, they were on opposite sides in two Captain America films (Winter Soldier & Civil War). Next month, we’ll see these two team up for the Netflix action-thriller, Point Blank.
When his pregnant wife is kidnapped and held as collateral, Paul, an ER nurse, must team with the badly injured career criminal and murder suspect under his charge in order to save the lives of his wife and unborn child. Pitted against rival gangs and a deadly ring of corrupt cops, the unlikely duo find a way to survive together in the fight of their lives. A gritty, action-packed thriller starring Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo.
This trailer is very odd to me, because the tone is all over the place. At first, it seems like your run-of-the-mill action movie, where our hero must save the damsel in distress. Then, out of nowhere, it turns into a buddy cop film. They even used the exhausted line about “Grand Theft Auto”. The only redemption they had from using that line for the 645 time was Grillo’s response.
Point Blank arrives on Netflix July 12, 2019!
