Based on the novel The Hunter by Donald Westlake this is one of the best films of the 60s. It's a rock hard story of revenge with an effective subplot about corporate anonymity. Lee Marvin is terrific as the type of thug which defined his career - not the kind of guy you'd want to rip off which is what happens here. John Vernon and Angie Dickinson are among the many culprits and all perform like they mean it. It's a bold looking film with primary colours and includes a psychedelic nightclub scene that wouldn't look out of place today. Which makes me wonder...why don't they re-master and re-release this film instead of making rubbish remakes, in this case, Payday?

Point Blank review

One of a few popular crime flicks of its genre. The beginning just a slow-burner that tends to move around. Lacks character development, an adequate soundtrack and realism to it. The man falling off the building just tops the cake since it felt cartoonish. The interrogation and action sequences were nice but for its genre, it felt unsatisfying. Background support was not convincing though there were instances that you were waiting for something to happen from the protagonist. It had some positive aspects such as the acting of Marvin, direction and plot. Conclusion didn't make much an impact and makes you feel cheated after viewing the entire movie. Point Blank was impressive for its time, unfortunately this doesn't hold-up and entertainment-wise for this reviewer.

"Point Blank" by Yojimbo

Lee Marvin gives his most uncompromising performance as Walker, a hired gun who goes on the warpath after he is double-crossed and left for dead by his wife and friend. John Boorman resurrects film noir, overlaying elements of contemporary trippy psychadelia and western themes to create an ice cold revenge thriller to rival the likes of Get Carter and Coogan's Bluff. Alongside an iconic Marvin stars John Vernon who sets out his stall and makes this the starting point to his career of playing every douchebag in the 1970s and Angie Dickinson who is the epitome of swinging 60s glamour. The one criticism I would have to make is the fact that its roots in contemporary culture has dated it a little, particularly the occasionally dreadful soundtrack and the unnecessary romantic scenes. Otherwise...
