Critic rating: 5
Based on the same Richard Stark novel that inspired 1967's "Point Blank," this stylish mob actioner stars Mel Gibson as a career criminal double-crossed and left for dead by his partner as well as his wife. Out for both revenge and his $70,000 share of the loot, Gibson goes up against a crime syndicate, crooked cops and Chinese gangsters to claim what's his. Kris Kristofferson, Maria Bello, Gregg Henry, James Coburn and Lucy Liu also star. Outstanding thriller Five Stars!
