'Point Blank's Mackie-Grillo team-up will see the unlikely duo race against time to save a loved one making the Netflix film a must watch
Being promoted as a "gritty, action-packed thriller" by Netflix, 'Point Blank' is the story of an emergency room nurse who is forced to work with an injured criminal to protect his family. Spanning one hell of a day, the Netflix thriller will see Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo teaming up. We know what you're thinking: Falcon and Crossbones have moved past their differences. Yes, but can we move past that now?
The movie, directed by Joe Lynch, will see Mackie as Paul, the nurse who will do anything for his family, and when his pregnant wife is kidnapped and held as collateral he decides to join forces with Grillo’s Abe, who is under his charge. Almost immediately Paul learns that the people working from behind the scenes are far more powerful than him, and looks to Abe for guidance.
The duo has many formidable foes including corrupt cops and rival gangs. We can certainly rest assured that Netflix has kept its trailer as spoiler-free as possible, however, the unlikely duo is more likely than not getting out of the whole ordeal scotch-free. However, that would require the unlikely duo to stick together and fight together, despite the fact that they have only known each other for a very short time.
No one said it was going to be an easy task. Paul, for example, is a repressed gamer, whereas Abe is all about being "grown-up", which apparently involves scaring old ladies with guns. What we can definitely look forward to is the back and forth between the duo, which is going to be entertaining and even funny, offering a respite from the continuous action.
Netflix subscribers sure seem to be excited about the new film, with one stating, "Wow this looks great! Netflix doesn't release action movies much, but when they do, they're really good!!!" Another viewer, who is a Mackie fan seems clearly excited about his new project: “I love that Mackie's getting more projects now ugh I love this man."
We are definitely looking forward to seeing this action-packed flick come July 12, 2019.
