Bigelow maxes a fetishistic froth of pumped abs and pumping guns, surfing action cinema’s homoerotic tides with panache.

Mr. Iliff's screenplay includes some egregious silliness and a long string of false endings, but occasionally it sounds the kind of tough-guy note that gets one's attention.

The plot of "Point Blank," summarized, invites parody (rookie agent goes undercover as surfer to catch bank robbers). The result is surprisingly effective.

The elements conspire to produce a superb splash of trashy, testosterone-induced mayhem.
