This week in streaming: Colombian drug lords and hurricane heists

Loving Pablo

Love is a battlefield.

In the mood for some high-stakes action? Then you're in for a good one with this week's additions to Aussie streaming libraries.

First up, we have Netflix with a remake of the 2010 film Point Blank. Like the original, it's a fast-paced thriller about an emergency room nurse and a criminal forced to work together to keep themselves and their loved ones alive.

The stakes are even higher over on Stan, where Hurricane Heist presents the bizarre premise of a group of thieves stealing from the US treasury during a Category 5 hurricane. The film comes from the director of The Fast and the Furious, so expect just as many explosive action scenes that gleefully defy the laws of physics and any notion of subtlety.

SBS On Demand lays claim to the other big release this week. Loving Pablo tells the lesser-known story of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, digging into his romantic relationship with the journalist Virginia Vallejo. Based on Vallejo's memoirs, the dramatised bio-pic stars Penelope Cruz as Escobar's conflicted lover and explores not only their relationship but the tumultuous landscape of Colombia during the late 20th century.
