‘In the Tall Grass’ Review: A Dull Stephen King Adaptation in Need of Serious Lawn Care

‘In the Tall Grass’ Review: A Dull Stephen King Adaptation in Need of Serious Lawn Care
Given the strength of its pedigree and the intrigue of its premise, . Adapted from a recent piece of short fiction that Stephen King and his son Joe Hill co-wrote for Esquire Magazine, the film opens by introducing us to another of the shifting nightmare spaces that Natali first explored so effectively in 1997’s “Cube.” This time around the location isn’t an inescapable prison full of horrifying death traps, but rather a deep and disorienting field of — you guessed it — tall grass that’s located somewhere in the American Midwest (where exactly in the American Midwest is something of a plot point in a movie that only has something of a plot).

If that sounds like a less frightening scenario than just about anything the director has started with before, that’s because it is, but viewers familiar with the source material know that evil loves to disguise itself in the mundane.

Review Round-up: ‘Point Blank’ & ‘Eaten By Lions’

  • Nerdly
Point Blank

Stars: Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Marcia Gay Harden, Stuart F. Wilson, Buster Reeves, Christian Cooke, Teyonah Parris, Boris McGiver, Reggie Willis, Shanessa Sweeney, Nik Pajic, Markice Moore | Written by Adam G. Simon | Directed by Joe Lynch

Point Blank, directed by Joe Lynch, is a remake of Fred Cavayé’s À bout portant, which was originally released in 2010. The film stars two actors from the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie as Abe and Paul, respectively. Paul has to break Abe out of custody in a hospital as his brother has taken Paul’s pregnant wife hostage. What commences is an unorthodox buddy-action comedy, in what is sadly yet another dull and tedious action-adventure.

It is hard to watch Point Blank and not debate why this was made, or even distributed by Netflix. Everything from its plot, actors and actress, or even filmmaking evokes a sense of direct-to-dvd nature.

‘Point Blank’ Review: Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo’s Chemistry Elevates Netflix Action Movie

It's hard not to like Point Blank, the new Netflix movie starring McU foes Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo as a mismatched pair who take on a group of crooked cops led by Marcia Gay Harden. It's the kind of guilty pleasure you watch on a Sunday afternoon with your brother or your roommate or whoever, and no one complains afterwards. Does it break any new ground? Well, no, but Mackie and Grillo share a certain chemistry that makes this an appealing action movie, especially at 80 minutes. And yes, that brief running time (sans credits) tells you …

Point Blank Review: Big Trouble in Little Cincy

Netflix's latest action attempt teams up Falcon and Crossbones...we mean Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo for a decent time.

facebook

twitter

tumblr

Much of Netflix’s Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo-starring actioner, Point Blank, is reliably conventional.

The concept of a mismatched pair of killer and non-killer is so pervasive in cinema that another one of its kind is already in theaters right now (the Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista-starring Stuber). Mackie’s nurse Paul and Grillo’s hardened criminal Abe go from fear to hatred to begrudging respect to bro-dom just as one would expect. The action includes car chases, gun fights, creatively destructive use of surroundings, and is all scored by a jaunty soundtrack.

This is a film you can set your watch to. Everything is as expected…except for the one thing. This epic story of gangs, gunfights, crooked cops, and explosions is set in the Queen City.

“Bring it On Again”

The cheerleading sequel has graduated from high school drama to college campus drama. With an entirely new cast and plotline, the followup still maintains the cheer squad battles that made its predecessor so entertaining.

Frank Grillo & Anthony Mackie in Trailer for 'Point Blank' from Netflix

"Cops want you dead, homie." Netflix has debuted an official trailer for a gritty, action-packed thriller titled Point Blank, an English-language remake of the 2010 French thriller of the same name (À bout portant). Anthony Mackie stars as Paul, an ER nurse who saves the life of a criminal and then must help plan the patient escape safely in order to save his kidnapped wife. The full cast includes Frank Grillo, Marcia Gay Harden, Christian Cooke, Teyonah Parris, Boris McGiver, and Ming Wang. I am a big fan of Joe Lynch's films and this looks gnarly.
