Walker: I want my money. I want my $93,000.
Brewster: $93,000? You threaten a financial structure like this for $93,000? No, Walker, I don't believe you. What do you really want?
Walker: I - I really want my money.
Point Blank includes examples of these tropes:
- Bad Ass: Lee Marvin. And his character.
- Big Bad: There's a trio of Organization bosses — Carter, Brewster and Fairfax. Walker tricks Carter into getting killed, and kidnaps Brewster to force payment. When the drop is being made, Brewster gets shot, and the one shooting him - Yost - turns out to be Fairfax.
- Combat Pragmatist
- Determinator: The Organization should really pay him his money.
- Department of Redundancy Department: The little dialog in the film is strange and repetitive. It is all part of the stylized world.
- Dying Dream: Or so says the director.
- Film Noir: Like Chinatown, this movie is a Film Noir that escaped into the daylight where it became even harsher and more cynical.
- Flashback Cut: To the point of non-linearity at times.
- Groin Attack: Walker defeats a mook by punching him in the balls - and punching him so hard that he remains curled up clutching himself.
- Implacable Man: Walker
- Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Walker could show Bauer a thing or twelve about getting information.
- MacGuffin: $93,000.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Many.
- Only One Name: Walker.
- Reality Is Unrealistic: Lee Marvin faked the recoil from the .44 Magnum when he shoots in Lynne's bed. These were in fact blanks, but afterward when shooting in Alcatraz they tried with real bullets and there was no recoil at all.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: More like Silent Rampage of Revenge.
- Tap on the Head: "We just knock 'em on the head, it's that simple!"
- Neutral Female
- Silence Is Golden: The film is famously laconic.
- The Syndicate: The Organization.
- Villain Protagonist: Walker.
- Wakeup Makeup:
