À bout portant (Point Blank)

À bout portant (Point Blank). Some movies do all the clichés right. Wrongful suspicion! A man in over his head! A woman in labor! Crooked cops! A chase on a complicated urban transit system! General ridiculousness! It all works. This movie reminded me of a great episode of a TV thriller–there’s not a ton of time for bullshit conversations and plot thickeners on your cellphones, so just go go go. There’s one chase scene in here that ends perfectly. It’s exactly what I would do.
