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.
Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.

And whack! It hits her in the eye. And her contact? It's, like, stuck on the end of my dick!
[Tiny waits for a reaction, but his friends are unimpressed. Only Marcus, in the front passenger seat, turns his head, alertly, like a lion smelling prey]
Yo, her contact was stuck on the end of my dick, yo!
Was it hard or was it soft?
What, my dick?
The contact lens!
Do you remember if it was a colored lens? That she used to have two blue eyes, and now she had one blue and one brown?

DVD includes 14 deleted scenes: they consist mostly of alternate takes of existing scenes (for example Ronna and Simon discussing outside the store) and longer versions of scenes featured in the theatrical release (such as the first conversation between Todd Gaines and Claire). Also included, however, is an alternate ending for the Vegas storyline, where Simon and Marcus find out they left Todd's credit card in Vegas and realize that the goons are on their tracks. They barricade themselves in Simon's apartment. Meanwhile Victor and his son are at Todd's apartment and are waiting for Simon. Claire finds Todd's gun and points it at Victor unaware that the gun isn't loaded. After a fight, Todd manages to wrestle the gun out of Victor's hands. Todd goes to Simon's apartment and, after Simon lets him in, punches him in the face. See more »

I don't know what really makes this movie so great. It could be the outstanding cast, the pitch perfect editing, the quick and funny dialog or maybe some other feature of a movie one could possibly like.
The truth is this movie couldn't been done any better. When I watch a movie I usually come up with lots of things, which could have been done better or at least differently. This time I ended up with nothing.
What amazes me the most is how they manage to define all the 10+ major characters so well, and they do it in what, less than 100 minutes. Most movies featuring many characters, fall apart cause there isn't enough screen time to present the differences among them, which just leads to a smear of unrecognizable faces. This doesn't happen with this movie for two reasons: A) All characters have at least one scene to really define themselves. B) By dividing the the film into three sub-plots you can easily relate each character to a specific sub-plot.
The tempo is very fast for 90% of the movie. There are two scenes, which have a significantly slower tempo. Those are the two scenes featuring Katie Holmes and Timothy Olyphant. First in the apartment and later in the coffee-shop. In my opinion those scenes are the best, but there is a lot to choose from so I'm not offended if yours isn't.
This movie really shows that even simple and straight forward stories, can be both unpredictable and entertaining, if they are told the right way. Add to this a pumping soundtrack, solid editing and an overall great production in an unpredictably entertaining movie, you will agree with me that Go is one of the best films ever made.
