Netflix has just released the official Point Blank trailer and it looks like the sort of action film that should be hitting theaters and not a streaming service.
This is the problem I have with Netflix and their movies: every once and a while they actually have a film that’s good enough to make a decent run in theaters. Point Blank isn’t going to break any records, but Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie are solid actors and this actually looks like a nice little action-comedy.
There is no reason this couldn’t open in theaters in March or late August and make a tidy profit. The way Netflix dumps a film on its platform after releasing one trailer is sometimes insulting. They let Twitter decide which shows become popular. Or, Netflix throws a show they want to be popular down our throats. I mean, Bird Box?! How did all those memes just arrive so suddenly?
Point Blank should be heading for theaters not a streaming service. ‘Nuff said.
Point Blank streams July 12, 2019 on Netflix.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
