Small-time criminal Mel Gibson and his partner, Gregg Henry, steal $140,000 from Triads.
But then Gibson is shot and left for dead, double-crossed by his wife, Deborah Kara Unger, and Henry.
A no-holds-barred revenge thriller then gets under way, with Gibson proving a convincing tough guy. Based on the same book as the classic 1967 Lee Marvin film, Point Blank, this ultra-tough thriller ditches the many ambiguities of the original and opts instead for a more straightforward storytelling style.
However, the gritty action is very well-staged and Lucy Liu impresses with her high-kicking style. Kris Kristofferson is the top villain and James Coburn has a cameo.
