      Audience Member quite an enjoyable film actually and kept you guessing a la Jackie Brown, where the money was going to end up! You can also see, by the way he plays his character, a lot of what eventually becomes the awesome Horatio Caine in CSI: Miami as this was made before Miami started! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Gem of a role for Susan Haskell. Quite a nimble dance between two lively actors. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Fairly ordinary crime thriller but played out by a set of actors destined for great careers in television, but no higher. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Ouf! C'est là que j'ai vu que David Caruso avait tout le potentiel pour faire un bon Horatio Caine avant même de débuter! Mais à part de ça, c'est plutôt ordinaire... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member An entertaining crime caper that features David Caruso expanding his range to two modes: angry and angrier. B-movie veteran Thomas Ian Griffith is the bad guy this time around, but the emphasis is on a cat-and-mouse pursuit instead of high-flying action. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Many twists and turns. Was surprised at how good it is. Susan Haskell is beautiful. Woth a watch. Nice scenery. Never know what is going to happen next. Released in 2001 but just showed up on Showtime. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Michael Szymanski International Press Academy Rated: 0/5 Oct 7, 2005 Full Review Scott Weinberg Apollo Guide Black Point isn't awful enough to incite any enthusiastic irritation, but it's also not a film you'll remember two days later. Rated: 61/100 Dec 4, 2002 Full Review Jeremiah Kipp ToxicUniverse.com David Caruso's also stuck in straight-to-video garbage like Black Point when he should be calling favors for another down 'n' dirty Abel Ferrara slice of New York gutter life. Rated: 1.5/5 Oct 23, 2002 Full Review Christopher Null Filmcritic.com By the end you won't know whether Haskell's character genuinely loves Caruso, but I'm sure you won't care. Rated: 2/5 Sep 30, 2002 Full Review Read all reviews
