So this has nothing to do with either Point Blank nor with the Scott Adkins movie Close Range. Although wait, that's not really true. We do have an undercover cop, so I guess Point Blank (english title of the movie) isn't that far fetched. Then again, this covers the illegal betting criminal underworld. And some other stuff.
It's tough to get attached to one person or distinguish between what your job is and what has to be done. Last year saw a fantastic movie called "Infiltrator". Now I don't even want to put those two movie up for comparison, this right here more or less being made for TV. Still the acting in "Auf kurze Distanz" is really something to be afraid of. And not in the good sense. Seldom is there any emotion conveyed, which makes it even harder to actually care for the characters. Overall a shame, because the movie would have something to tell. And a nice ending too - even though you should be able to figure that one out (police work you say?)
