Kill Point, The
A couple of veterans from the war in Iraq have returned traumatised and with no money to live they decide to rob a bank. Everything seems to go as planned with a swift entry, quick control over the bank and nobody harmed, but when they want to leave the premises everything goes wrong. One of the customers at the bank is an FI agent who starts shooting the moment they leave, and the money transport turned back and before the guys know it they’re pinned down with no way to escape to going back into the bank is the only option. What started out as a bank robbery turns into a hostage situation with on one side the veterans and on the other officer Horst Cali who tries to get all hostages out alive.
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is technically pretty decent for a short tv show but certain scenes clearly look like they’ve been made up out of cardboard so at times things really don’t look real. The amount of detail and sharpness of the images is decent although not the best we’ve seen from TV series.
The sound delivers clear dialogues but nothing more.
The Killing Point is an 8 episode TV show about one hostage situation. You might wonder how the makers managed to stretch something like this for so long but luckily the psychology and storylines are good enough to keep you interested eventhough certain parts go on a bit longer than you would want to. Each episode contains everything you want and there’s enough action present to keep you looking forward to the next one. All in all The Kill Point isn’t a great show but interesting to check out for once. I would suggest watching it on TV or renting (if possible) before buying though.
