Point Blank (2010)

He’s no superhero.

The male nurse at the center of this crackling French thriller is an ordinary dude stretched almost past his limits, but he keeps on running.

The life of his pregnant wife, and unborn child, are at stake, so he commits crimes, gets down ‘n dirty, and keeps on plugging away, doing his best to spring a ruthless killer from the hospital where he’s shackled to a bed.

Full of twists and turns, this Gallic adrenaline rush inspired several remakes, including a fairly-decent American one in 2018, but none top the original.

Buy the ticket, take the ride.
