Original Content podcast: Netflix thriller 'Point Blank' underwhelms

"Point Blank," a new Netflix original film, stars Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie as a criminal and a nurse thrown together by circumstances — Abe (played by Grillo) is struck by a car while fleeing a murder scene, and he's brought to the hospital where Paul (Mackie) works. Despite the presence of two Marvel stars (Grillo had a brief-but-memorable run in the Captain America movies as Brock Rumlow, while Mackie's Falcon is about to become the new Captain America), "Point Blank" is a decidedly modest affair, focusing on these two men as they drive through the streets of Cincinnati, on the run from both the police and criminals.
