This movie ROCKS! Action, twists, great performances...a must see!
I was lucky to get to see Black Point at the LA permiere in December of 2001. I have always been a fan of David Caruso's, and every time I see him he just gets better and better. This film is no exception. The other lead actors are fantastic as well, Thomas Ian Griffith (also one of the writers) plays a "bad guy," but in a very appealing way and Susan Haskell is excellent in a breakout femme fatale kind of role.
It's hard to summarize the film without giving too much away, but in a nutshell, Caruso plays John Hawkins, a down and out former Navy Captain who is stuck in the small harbor town of the film's title, Black Point.
He meets Haskell in the sexy role of Natalie and just when he thinks his life is going to change for the better, it take a wild swing for the worse. Twists and turns abound and the action is innovative throughout.
I can't recommend this independent Canadian film enough.
