Editorial Reviews

John Leguizamo, Donnie Wahlberg, Michael Hyatt. The first-and, unfortunately, only season of the hard-hitting crime drama about an Iraq War veteran's ex-platoon as they try to pull off a major bank heist in Pittsburgh, where they end up going head to head with a tough-talking hostage negotiator. 14 episodes on 2 DVDs. 2007/color/8 hrs/NR.

Format:DVD
"The Kill Point" was an eight-part television series that has the distinction of being the first drama to air on the Spike network. The story is about a group of U.S. Marines back from Iraq who try to pull off a bank robbery in Pittsburgh. They almost get away with it, but then the robbery turns into a hostage situation. John Leguizamo plays Jake Mendez, the sergeant in charge of the operation and who calls himself "Mr. Wolf" in negotiations with the police Captain Horst Cali (Donnie Wahlberg), the police negotiator. In terms of recent television series as points of reference, "The Kill Point" strikes me as a cross between "Kidnapped" and "The Nine," which is not a bad thing.

"The Kill Point" has its fair share of hostage taking commonplaces (except for the television series "Standoff," why are FBI hostage negotiators such idiots?), but having Leguizamo and Wahlberg playing off each other is a major plus. Overall, you will get caught up in the various games being played and wondering when the SWAT team sniper (Michael K. Williams), who is usually seen in most episodes waxing philosophically about his skills or whatever, is finally going to take a damn shot at somebody. Of course the big problem is that you want both guys to win, but the situation becomes more and more one in which that sort of outcome is going to be very difficult to achieve. Because this is a mini-series, it has the ability to come up with some decent variations on the genre. Plus, as a mini-series, it actually has a beginning and an end without leaving out the part in the middle.

Because these are ex-U.S. soldiers there are obviously concerns about what this story says about the war in Iraq. Mr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Point and Match October 7, 2008
Format:DVD
Take the elements of Inside Job and Dog Day Afternoon and mesh it together and you have this TV mini series.

Donnie Wahlberg is the cop. John Leguizamo is the robber. They mesh in this piece in such a way. Pacino and Durring did in Dog Day. Leguizamo is an amazing character actor, who comes into his own in this production. Wahlberg proves that his acting in Saw and the TV series Boontown was no fluke.

The story is of a so called botched robbery, but is it really botched? There are a few red herring in this taut drame.

With this production, Spike TV proved that it can do original television and will keep a viewer riveted.

Get this drama and watch a thrill happen

5.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Miniseries From Spike TV March 9, 2009
Format:DVD
This is a miniseries that aired on Spike TV starring John Leguizamo and Donnie Wahlberg as a cop and criminal in a major standoff. As the six episodes progress things become more complicated as we draw closer to final conclusion. It's sort of like a miniature puzzle watching this series, not as great as other shows or movies but very entertaining and different from what we're used to. Spike TV should do more shows like this to go along with their UFC Fights/Specials and many Cop reality shows and help balance out their selection even further.

The six 'episodes' are:

1: Who's Afraid of Mr. Wolf - A group of ex-soldiers rob a bank but the heist goes wrong and they end up in the bank taking hostages.
The situation in the bank takes a turn for the worse when police turn off the electricity and Wolf threatens to kill a hostage.

2: No Meringue - The new FBI negotiator has no intention of giving into more demands, Wolf is trying to get a birthday cake for one of the hostages. There are negotiations with the rich father of one of the hostages.

3: Pro Patria - Horst isn't sure he can trust Mr. Wolf after certain events. Alan Beck contacts Mr. Wolf as the getaway driver comes up with a change in plans.

4: Visiting Hours - Horst and Mr. Wolf have some unexpected guests. As Horst interrogates one of Wolf's former partners, the hostages are up to something.

5: The Great Ape Escape - Horst investigates one of Wolf's former friends, and makes a surprising discovery; an extraction plan is conceived of.

6: The Devil's Zoo - Mr. Rabbit takes over the role of leader as Wolf struggles with his emotions. Mr. Rabbit's leadership scares everyone including Capt. Horst who starts to think of new ways to get everyone out safely.

4.0 out of 5 stars One hell of an exciting ride! May 7, 2013
Format:DVD
I must admit I half expected this to have some sort of production values of a below par series like CSI: Miami or something. But suprisingly this was a very well orchestrated production more in line with the slick and profound quality of the series '24'. Though not quite as good as '24' it holds it's ground most of the way through. There are some moments that are a bit "Good lord, give me a break", but the solid acting by Wahlberg and Leguizamo keep this thriller interesting and even sometimes unpredictable. There are a few weaker moments that seem to shamelessly steal ideas from Sidney Lumet's 'Dog Day Afternoon'. Pacino turning a robbery into a circus side show is duplicated here by Leguizamo, and with less compelling results, yet enjoyable to watch none the less. There is plenty of tension and some great action here and there, and a few all out gun battles that are well executed. Of course there is a lot of this story that simply isn't believable, but it's all in the name of entertainment I suppose and the result is one hell of an exciting ride.
