Cameron Mitchell must have been paid in liquor.
30 April 2010 | by CoolestmoviesSee all my reviews

KILLPOINT (1984) pits "dangerous" police detective Fong and ATF agent Richard Roundtree against gangster Cameron Mitchell and his stone-faced second-in-command Stack Pierce, who've stolen a load of weapons from a nearby military depot for resale to the city's gangs, who in turn use them to shoot up restaurants and supermarkets for kicks. The "high" point of the picture (or low point, depending on your POV) is Mitchell's performance, which is so detached and dazed that it's tough to tell if he's acting or just really, really plastered for much of his screen time, which is spent passively-aggressively canoodling with his pet poodle and killing those who irritate him in even the most perceived of ways, and giving Pierce plenty of reason to suspect that his boss is turning gay. Even on autopilot, Roundtree proves to be the consummate professional, delivering a solid performance that outshines virtually everyone around him.
