They double-crossed Walker, took his $93,000 cut of the heist and left him for dead, but they didn't finish the job. Big mistake. He - someday, somehow - is going to finish them. Lee Marvin is in full antihero mode as remorseless Walker, talking the talk and walking the walk in John Boorman's (Deliverance) edgy neo-noir classic filled with imaginative New Wave style, blunt dialogue and Walker's relentless quest that, one by one, smashes into the corporate pecking order of a crime group called the Organisation. Angie Dickinson plays the accomplice who uses her seductive wiles to ensnare one of Walker's prey.
A Vey Stylish Film About Death
- Point Blank review by Cato
A kind of metaphysical thriller about a man (Lee Marvin) who tries to get some money back from some crooked characters who obviously don't want to give it back. Guns and fights are very much to the fore, and Marvin gives a very good performance of the man obsessed with his revengeful quest. At the time of it's release (1967) it must have seemed a fantastic film, but of course it has spawned a large collection of films that have tried to copy it in one way or another. It's a top class gangster film, very well directed by John Boorman with some brilliant cinematography from Philip H Lathrop.
