Based on the dark action novel “The Heat of Ramadan”, James Bond alumnus John Glen created the high adrenaline hit Point Men. Originally released in Sweden, the film hasn’t been released in America, but it will be coming to DVD this fall through the efforts of Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.
A failed mission to kill a Palestinian terrorist leaves S.S. Agent Tony Eckhardt (Christopher Lambert) and his team demoted, dejected and an embarrassment to the agency. Convinced that the operation was a trap set up by Amar, Eckhardt’s repeated excuses for his failure fall on deaf ears, and when the other members of the team are killed in a series of brutal revenge killings disguised as accidents, Tony decides to take matters into his own hands.
Although the film will be presented in anamorphic widescreen and fullscreen, and will have sound mixes in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby 2.0 Surround sound, the disc – like many foreign films – will contain no extra features.
“Point Men” will come to home video on November 13th for $24.96.
