The term “trigger point” refers to the regions of the body that cause pain; for example, if you have a lower back problem, you may receive an injection in the “trigger point” of the afflicted area. The writer, producer, or whomever nailed down the title “Trigger Point” for this cinematic bag of agony didn’t/doesn’t care what the term truly means, or whether it refers to anything that really happens in the movie; they just thought it sounded nice, as is common for many hack films. Also, in this ostensibly spy thriller, there’s a lot of shooting, and firearms have triggers and so on.
The film begins with a skinny woman wearing a bolero hat that is at least two sizes too large for her head blowing away a group of individuals who appear to be going about their business. We then switched to “One Year Later,” with Poor Barry Pepper as Nick, who has a nice lodge in the woods and an extensive home security system watching it. It’s the same setup as in “The Mechanic” and perhaps 7,000 other films. So does the dialogue, which includes gems like “I have a message,” “She’s determined to identify the culprit,” “Nobody knows who Quentin is… that’s what makes him so strong,” “The world doesn’t function that way anymore,” and “I believed you were dead.” IMDB
