What is Point Blank about?

The film sees the unlikely duo of a nurse and a career criminal team up in order to take down a group of corrupt police officers. The set up, as seen in the trailer above, has strong shades of Taken. We see Mackie's Paul get knocked unconscious and wake up to discover that his pregnant wife has been kidnapped.


He gets a call from the bad guys responsible for the attack, who ask him to deliver a criminal (Grillo) who is recovering on Paul's ward. But the criminal has other ideas. They eventually decide to work together - but can he trust his newfound ally?
