A corporation hires a professional assassin to pose as its trade show representative who must organize the wedding of a Middle Eastern pop star, which will allow him the opportunity to kill a Middle Eastern politician.
Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
A political satire set in Turaqistan, a country occupied by an American private corporation run by a former US Vice President. In an effort to monopolize the opportunities the war-torn nation offers, the corporation's CEO hires a troubled hit man, to kill a Middle East oil minister. Now, struggling with his own growing demons, the assassin must pose as the corporation's Trade Show Producer in order to pull off this latest hit, while maintaining his cover by organizing the high-profile wedding of Yonica Babyyeah, an outrageous Middle Eastern pop star, and keeping a sexy left wing reporter in check.Written by

When Brand Hauser exits the building-ruins after rescuing Natalie Hegalhuzen you can clearly see him putting away one of the two pistols, namingly his right one, and waving with his left arm. The very next shot shows him putting away both pistols, his right, then his left. See more »
This little Turaqi pop star. She really disturbs me and I can't figure out why.

BeTolerant.com is listed twice in the thanks section of the credits, despite this resulting in an odd number of entries and causing the last entry to have to go against the rest of the layout (centered, vs two-column) to keep things even. See more »
A satirical view of today's world. A movie which allows you for once to step back and take a look at our world from the outside. Things might not seem so right and correct. Successfully points out some of the most typical features of western society which we have turned out to be accustomed to. Even though it proposes a quite fictional view of the American role in the world, showing a country ruled by the Us in a sort of parallel world controlled through cameras and secret services. Somehoe reminds of Orwell's 1984 or Huxley's A brave new world. The story is not very involving sometimes turns out to be a bit hard to follow and some scenes seem to be just useless and inappropriate, while the acting is good, the main actors have done a good job. A the soundtrack is often fitting in the scenes, contrasting, adding some irony to the story. In all a pleasant movie good to watch.
