A GOOD SOLID ACTION THRILLER!!!
29 October 2018 | by lukem-52760See all my reviews

Point men is a low budget Action Thriller with Christopher Lambert as the lead & it's good fun. I usually always like Lambert movies but like all Actors he has done some terrible films & i know he is usually found in low budget straight to video type movies but hey that doesn't mean they are all bad. Lambert is very cool here in Point men & lifts the film up to a better level of quality by him starring in it & that is because Lambert brings a serious & tense tone to his performance's!!!! This is an action Thriller with bursts of bloody violence about a known terrorist who is believed to be dead but is not who has come back for revenge by killing off Lamberts team called The Foreign Legion & it's up to Lambert to start hunting him down in a game of cat & mouse in true double crossing spy style!!! It's obviously low budget but made well enough & with some really brutal & bloody scenes & a tense atmosphere & a really good performance by Christopher Lambert so yes a worth it watching or buying Thriller. The best Lambert has ever been is in the cult classic prison sci-fi thriller FORTRESS (1992) i don't think he has ever beaten his intense performance in that excellent movie but he is usually good most films such as ADRENALINE: FEAR THE RUSH (1996) another dark sci-fi action Thriller i think lambert is best in dark sci-fi action Thrillers but he's still a very cool & intense actor & he's very good here in The Point Men.
