Betrayed by his partner-in-crime over syndicate buy-in money, and by his wife over his affair, a man returns from his assumed-murder to collect his cut from their last job.
An amazing movie that has a great tone throughout. It's straightforward and blunt. Although Mel Gibson is flat, it works for both the character and the movie.
- A remake of Point Blank - (1967 movie), which is in turn based on The Hunter - (1962 book), by Richard Stark (Donald E. Westlake)
- Original soundtrack on Varese Sarabande CDs.
Apparently there's a "Mysterious Press" novel.
