Blow Out

I watched Blow Out last night and thought it was pretty cheesy.

It takes place in a gritty 70s/80s Philadelphia and is about a sound man (John Travolta) who accidentally records a political murder. As he tries to solve the crime he his stalked by the hit man who apparently has gone rogue. The tension regarding solving the crime is all centered around minutia of film and sound, which I found interesting, but the plot with the hit man (John Lithgow) seemed stupid to me.
