edthehead12 -> Grosse Pointe Blank.... (27/10/2012 8:05:32 PM)

At No.439 of the ol' Empire top 500. is the 1997 Crime, Action and Comedy; "Grosse Pointe Blank" starring non other than John Cusack and Academy Award Nominated, Dan Akyroyd as professional hitmen and post "Good Will Hunting" Minnie Driver (Later Oscar - Nominated for her performance in Good Will Hunting).

After having a hand in the production of the film John Cusack had the motivation and he certaintly carrried the film begining with a great opening scene as we see an insight into his work whilst on the phone. Afetr taking advice from his reluctant shrink (Alan Arkin) Martin Blank heads to Grosse Pointe for his reunion.

So without going into too much detail Grosse Pointe Blank is no typical 90's cash cow, no, it's got good acting performances, great soundtrack and genuine comedy. Fair to say that you won't expect much at first due to a less than critical acclaim yet it's almost a cliche, typical story yet juggled between romance and pre - Bourne, Taken fight sequences. It has an ace up it's sleeve as it flows and is cliche yet it knows it.
