Storyline

Across the Southwest United States, dozens of towns in the Mexican borders are being plagued by arms dealers who make a fortune by smuggling guns and ammunition to arm the cartels. Rumoured to be dead, Sheriff Wallace returns as the prodigal son to his hometown in Los Reyes County, Arizona, to replace Leland, the unapologetic, small-town man of the law after a routine check that went terribly wrong and forced him to retire. Soon enough, Wallace will get caught in the middle of a bloody inquiry trying to find out those who struck the profitable deal, while at the same time, a stash of blood-money and a kill list made by the relentless Atticus, the cartel's resilient hit man, threatens the town's peace. From now on, there will be no arresting anymore. Written by Nick Riganas

It's beautifully shot and often makes some ballsy moves, but it's confusingly constructed from a narrative perspective and ultimately both hollow and lacking a point.
21 November 2017 | by Pjtaylor-96-138044See all my reviews

Although 'The Hollow Point', a relatively low-budget and non-descript neo-western, includes a couple of riskily ballsy surprises, relies on a few entertainingly scenery-chewing performances and is absolutely beautifully shot - I seriously can't stress how staggeringly good the flick looks considering its size and stature, its narrative is so haphazardly constructed and lacking in almost any form of thematic through-line that it's actually quite a challenge to even understand how each element of the plot ties together, let alone become invested in any of the proceedings or characters caught up in them; seriously, there are several core players who's importance in the story doesn't become apparent until very late in the game, the lead love interest isn't established as such before perhaps the third act and even then her connection with the protagonist isn't ever explored, and there are times when people are introduced in the very same scene during which they play a major part in a plot-point that asks you to either care about or previously know them, but it's really this fragmented feel applied to the narrative that kills the pace and engagement of the piece as it transforms it into an utterly passive and, at times, frankly frustratingly confusing experience which ultimately lacks a point and is generally pretty hollow. 4/10
