Point Blank somehow has car chases, bullets, and corrupt cops yet doesn’t present much of a thrill despite all that.

Point Blank Ending Explained & Commentary (with Spoilers)
From what we are told, Regina was at the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to this whole corruption thing. Yet, be it blackmail, following status quo or she found it lucrative, Regina went along with what everyone was doing and worked her way up. Well, at least high enough to have a minor team. Enough people to kill the DA, who was investigating her and others, but not so far up that killing her would destroy all corruption in Cincinnati. Big D is given the flash drive for that and considering he has illegal activities, more than likely he may use that information to protect himself or network.
But, with not having that flash drive comes Abe’s freedom. For with Mateo dead, due to Regina’s accomplice, and his parents also dead, there is nothing holding him. But, we are shown a government vehicle trailing him.
As for Paul? Well, despite killing a cop and helping a known fugitive, it seems he strangely got to keep his normal life. Mind you, it isn’t like Paul isn’t seen on a recording helping Abe, much less that he couldn’t have been reported for stealing a co-worker’s badge. So we’re left to assume the cops thought Abe coerced him to do everything and so he got let off. At least, considering Paul is not in jail or with an ankle bracelet a year later, that is the safest bet.
Is A Sequel Possible?
Yup. Abe is still alive and with Big D likely not giving up that flash drive, and Regina committing suicide over being hauled in, that means there remains many corrupted officials. Much less, as noted above, one is trailing Abe at the end of the movie. So nothing is keeping Abe from working his way up the ladder, getting shot up, and heading to Paul’s home to get fixed up. Leading to the possible plot for Point Blank 2.
