The movie didn't really do anything for me...
The story was same old same old, just a different setting, with the same old psycho creep.
The acting was bordering on okay but exaggerated, I don't know if volleyball players are suppose to be more annoying than cheerleaders but it seems so...
Its a nice movie to watch when you're having some people over and actually just need something in the background while having a conversation... But if you want some thrills and scares, I'd think your better off renting The Little Mermaid.
Some nice girls in bikini's help but the story is so full of plot holes, I'd rather watch this as an ultra-soft porn movie... But then again I don't like story lines in that kind of movies! Wait for it to appear on cable/satellite but don't pick this one up over something else at the video shop... You'd most probably regret it...
I found it entertaining and watchable. It has a bit of suspense, a bit of minor violence, a scary character, all overlaid onto a professional beach volley ball setting. The female cast, Melissa Keller and Kayla Ewell, do a great job in the competition scenes with the aid of some shrewd directing. Melissa Keller adds an engaging acting personality to her long established fashion and swimsuit modeling credentials. Some rear nudity shower scenes are the likely source of the R-rating, but this is not an offensive movie. Although lightly done, all of the summer entertainment features are present: great visuals, sports competition and personal best, rivalry, a very bad guy, police and crowd scenes, romance,...

Beyond the obvious attraction of bikini-clad volleyball players, there
really isn't much good to say about this movie.
The producers were wise to try to capitalize on the popularity of ladies beach volleyball, but the action on the beach isn't enough to carry the film.
Overdone stalker plot, forced acting and a plot hole you could drive a Mack truck through.
Is this the only police department on the planet with no access to a sketch artist?
Enjoy the view, but don't expect much else.
I will offer spoilers.
The movie is stupid and the plot is retarded and everything about it basically is screwed up.
So far today I've seen 3 movies and all of them were on the same level as this...totally retarded.
With perhaps the most retarded police force in all of California, this makes for one boring, lame ass and stupid flick which should save you some time by not watching it.
With senseless action and plot development - I am still amazed that with so many horrible movies being made that there is still a thriving film industry in California.
Impact Point kicked major ass. I enjoyed every minute of this suspense thriller. It has a sexy beach volley ball setting and a creepy teenage atmosphere. Brian Austin Green(Beverly Hills 90210) plays a menacing stalker that becomes obsessed with a pro volley ball player Melissa Keller(Venice Underground) and proceeds to terrorize her closest friends and her teammates Kayla Ewell(Senior Skip Day) and Joe Manganiello(One Tree Hill) and she begins to work with a detective Linden Ashby(Prom Night), who is investigating a series of murders. I guess this movie delivers a good message, when you go out with a stranger, make sure he is who he says he is. I compare this movie with Prom Night and the upcoming 2009 flick Obsessed starring Beyonce Knowles and Ali Larter. This movie is hot, sleek, scary, and sexy. The girls run around in their bikinis and sweat and play some sand volley ball. It also shows what a girl has to go through to get an obsessed man out of her life. Its definitely worth checking out.
This wasn't a bad thing to watch on a boring night with nothing to do, i didn't expect much from this film till i finally watched it and surprisingly it was pretty good it had me on the edge of my seat at times the acting was alright but it felt like TV episode acting, i thought Kayla Ewell's performance was great as always in movies like Senior Skip Day and some Entourage episodes iv seen her in the past as for Melissa Keller's performance was also pretty good for a actor i never really seen before or heard about she definitely brought something to the table overall i enjoyed the film and you probably will too..if you can find it ;)
IMPACT POINT is a below-par stalker movie that sees former BEVERLY
HILLS 90210 star Brian Austin Green playing an obsessed fan who ends up
stalking a volleyball star. The movie has TV-level production values
throughout and singularly fails to impress thanks to a lack of skill
and talent on the part of those involved in the making of it.
The problems with this movie are myriad, but here are a few: first, the volleyball scenes. Volleyball seems to me to be a sport aimed solely at male viewers who can enjoy bikini-clad women bouncing about in the sand and, sure enough, we get tons of those slow-mo shots here; so many in fact that I'm surprised the director was a woman. In any case, such scenes come across as filler and are completely unappetising. Similarly, an attempt at a 'hot' sex scene feels like something from one of those '90s-era sub-par Shannon Tweed movies.
Secondly, the narrative is routine. There's little to no suspense in the stalking plot, apart from in a couple of short chase sequences. The acting is pretty awful, with Green failing to build a presence as the villain and Melissa Keller a completely unworthy object of his obsession. Instead, the film-makers seem determined to get as much product placement in their movie as they can, particularly from Coca Cola. There's not much in the way of violence to speak of either, so this is a disappointment through and through. My favourite stalker movie thus far is the excellent TV movie STALKING LAURA, based on a true story and starring Richard Thomas - go check that one out if you haven't already.
I had a favorite poster of Melissa Keller on my wall for years. It's
from a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shoot, and it shows her leaning back
in a bikini against a huge stack of ripe melons. And she's got this
really sexy grin and a sort of totally relaxed body language that makes
it seem casual and sensual and dreamlike all at once.
Well, I don't think this movie captures Melissa Keller's appeal to quite that degree. She plays a nice, down to earth girl who wants to be a volleyball star, but she's stalked by this horrible guy, and then she has to join forces with this really stuck up rival volley ball player who hates her.
The odd thing is, Kayla Ewell, who plays the stuck up Jen Crowe, actually comes off much better than Melissa Keller. She's plainly a more experienced actress. She gives this girl a really forceful, dynamic personality, and a kind of darkly sexual charisma. Her personality is so strong you expect her to kill of her partner's stalker for her and then they win the championship! Instead there's this lame cop who doesn't look a day over 55, and he's sort of wimpy and yet somehow he saves the day at the end. Or something.
Gee, I really miss that old poster of Melissa Keller showing off her melons!

***SPOILERS*** It was pretty blond and well developed Kelly Reyes',
Melissa Keller, misfortune to have caught the eye of this psychotic
stalker Holden, Brian Austin Green, who's obsession with the champion
woman volley ball player turned from just friendly talk & chit chat to
serial murder! Holden claiming to be a top syndicated sports writer
gets close enough to Kelly that he even gets to have a one night stand
with her in her thinking that he's both cute & harmless. He may be cute
all right but he's about as harmless as a "Jack the Ripper" or "Son of
Besides the usual story of a girl, in this case a very gorgeous and well staked girl, being stalked by a sex crazed control freak psycho the film "Impact Point" is just average and nothing more. But the women, that's the women volley ball players, in it are anything but. Dressed in loose & scanty two piece bikinis and with their chests almost popping out of them with every serve who really cares about the movies flimsy plot anyway. All you do is just follow the bouncing ball and enjoy yourself. We soon have Holden casing out Kelly's apartment with a number of hidden cameras watching her, dressed and undressed, every movement. The guy went so far to get Kelly's love as well as attention by running down and killing her biggest rival in the up and coming volley ball championship finals Diana Wilkes, Janelle Ruen, so she can be in and win them. With all that he did for Kelly Holden expected far more then just a one night stand from her. But when through the local police department Kelly found out what a sick and annoying creep he really was and dropped him the guy went completely not only bananas but mango pineapple & fruitcake as well!
***SPOILERS*** As the day of the big volley ball womens championship game is upon us Kelley with her womens volley ball partner Jen Crowe, Kayla Ewell, go all out to win but they not only have to contend with the opposition but with the by now totally crazed Holden. Who's determined to make a name for himself making himself known to the world at large in what a deranged and over the top psycho he is. But also cement his sick and fantasized relationship with Kelly by murdering her in front of millions of TV viewers, as well as those live at the big event, and thus having Kelly's name linked with him, like December 7,1941 with Pearl Harbor and September 11, 2001 with the World Trade Center, forever and for all eternity!
