  • “Grosse Pointe Blank” is a great film with all kinds of entertainment. John Cusack was born to play Martin Blank. His neurotic hitman is perfectly captured by Cusack’s ‘stream of conciousness’ style. This movie is one of the finest black comedies of the nineties. Cusack and Aykroyd have the best lines I have ever witnessed in a movie. Their humor is sarcastic and quick-witted. The quirky combination of violence, black comedy and music is amazing. The characterisations are amazing and fit together perfectly. Overall this film is well worth seeing, and I would recommend it to anyone. If you haven’t seen it, you should.
