Christopher Lambert kicking terrorist butt! 8/10
11 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Usually I despise these direct to video action films, but something about The Point Men struck me, and I walked away with a smile on my face. This film is much better then some recent major studio movies that dealt with terrorism; I am of course talking about the disappointing Collateral Damage and the god-awful Bad Company. The film doesn't really go for too much style, instead the action scenes are raw and bloody. I've always enjoyed Christopher Lambert, he's not a great actor but he gives it his all; like he does here. Nothing to seek out, but if you are looking for a good way to kill an evening, Point Men is a lot better then most are giving it credit for.
