RMG 059: Grosse Pointe Blank (1997)

March 15, 2017

In this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew are joined by guest co-host Vince and we’re geeking out over Gross Pointe Blank (1997) and

  • America’s Treasure
  • 80’s nostalgia
  • funny violence
  • and much, much more!


Martin Blank is an international hit man, who’s starting to feel depressed and bored about his work. Unfortunately, this affects his efficiency and makes him botch a couple of hits, which is not a good thing in his line of work!

Both his secretary, and psychiatrist feel he’s a bit high strung and needs to relax, so when Martin receives an invitation to his 10 year high school reunion… they both think that’s the perfect solution for him.

…a slightly neurotic assassin meeting up with old friends, and an ex-girlfriend he left on prom night 10 years ago…

…checking up on his mom, and finding out that his old house is now a convenience store…

…all this, while, at the same time, being chased by a bunch of other hit men, and two federal agents…

Yeah… what could possibly go wrong?
