No, Point Man is solidly dramatic, a dialogue-driven piece with just enough adrenaline sprinkled in to keep the pages turning.

More anti Veteran propaganda in the film industry.

The character development, the beautiful scenery, the gripping storyline.

Crisp, tight, and streamlined in some places and brilliantly ponderous in others, Point Man descends into the depths of the human condition with a disarming lack of pretense.

Christopher Long is riveting.

A lot of effort seems to have gone into selecting stunning Southeast Asian backdrops (a google search reveals it was filmed in Cambodia and Vietnam) and it stuns me that the director didn't take advantage of natural opportunities afforded by the local.

Bad acting, bad direction, boring and static camera work, robotic editing and both the story and the dialogue is a joke too...

thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.

A gripping Viet Nam DRAMA .

By itself Point Man is a wonderful story, a riveting and thought-provoking narrative that has earned its stars a place in cinematic storytelling.

Chilling - a gripping drama, great plot, set in the densest of settings .

Compelling crime drama .

Simply unwatchable.

Today's movies, news, and what comes out of academia reminds me of the cold war communist propaganda.

All in all a real enjoyable flick, very thought provoking and will keep you glued to your seat!

"Point Man" is dramatic & moving, intense & uncomfortable, dynamic & unrelenting, just as it is intelligent & thought provoking in ways that challenge beliefs.

Other than the obvious production limitations, this story about Vietnam was very compelling along with exceptional acting from the main cast, if I might add, enhanced what this movie might not have been.

Complex but never too convoluted to follow, the plot winds to an unpredictable - if poetic - payoff in the final act.

Entertaining flick, watch it for the birds.

And it's the story, ultimately, that makes Point Man worth watching.

He seemed natural in his role which made Casper's character development that much more believable and enjoyable.

Don't waste your time.

It is a performance worth watching with rapt attention.

The acting itself is abysmal, contrived, and a garbage script.

Dialogue is riveting, story is excellent, pacing good, all in all a rare gem among a field of stones.

I liked this movie because I feel that former president Obama would have enjoyed it.

compelling plot .

I've never seen something like this, well worth watching!
