Filming Locations Guide: Where was Point Blank filmed?

Posted by

Point Blank is a 2019 action thriller filmed partially on wheels and featuring a remarkable soundtrack, a bit like 2017's Baby Driver.

The Netflix movie is a remake based on Fred Cavaye's 2010 French film of the same name. Paul is an emergency nurse forced to help a criminal to rescue his kidnapped pregnant wife.

Point Blank filming location

The production stars Frank Grillo (Crossbones) and Anthony Mackie (Falcon/Captain America), both known for their roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Most action films like this one take place in New York, LA, or San Francisco (with notable exceptions like the mentioned movie Baby Driver), however, Point Blank was filmed and is proudly set in Cincinnati, The Queen City.
