Thomas's rating of the film Grosse Pointe Blank

I was underwhelmed by this film when it first came out. Revisiting it now I still feel the same way. It feels very disjointed and directionless, a series of tight, well written and often drily comic set-pieces tacked together on top of a cool but distracting soundtrack. But there is no flow to the narrative and the film (unlike the characters portrayed in it) ultimately lacks any charm or personality.
