The excellent French thriller Point Blank from 2010 has recently be remade by Netflix with the same name (and, no, these are unrelated to the 1967 Lee Marvin movie).

American remakes of gritty French original movies often simplify and prettify the plots (see this question on the two versions of Sleepless Night). Did this happen for this remake? What are the key differences between the two versions of the movie?

  • Why not watch it for yourself and find out?

  • @SiXandSeven8ths I just watched the new one but haven’t had time to revisit the original. And, even if I did, others might spot things I wouldn’t see.

  • Fair enough, I read your question wrong, it seemed like you maybe hadn't viewed it yet and wanted someone to analyze it.
