Grosse Pointe Blank
Martin Q. Blank (John Cusack) is a professional assassin. He is faced with a dilemma when he visits his old home town of Grosse Pointe for a reunion and meets up with his past romance (Minnie Driver) who he falls for again. Unfortunately, Blank is also at his home town for a job – to kill someone. Meanwhile, Dan Ackroyd (fellow hit-man) is there also trying to persuade Blank to join a ‘union’. Not settling for a simple ‘no’, Ackroyd gets in some more muscle to pin down Blank, and kill him if he doesn’t agree to join up.
Sound and Vision:
The image quality is more than reasonable with as only downpoint some minor grain. Color use, detail level and sharpness are all ok.
The 5.1 soundtrack is nice but hardly comes into effect due to the fact that most of the movie turns around dialogues.
Grosse Pointe Blank is a great black comedy with a fantastic plot about a hitman with a burnout who has to go to a reunion and falls in love again with his former high school girlfriend. Great movie that you definitely have to check out when you find it for a budget price.
