Movie Review: Wild Target (4 of 5)
Bill Nighy is the world’s greatest assassin. Infamous and anonymous, no one knows who he is or what he looks like – only that he never fails. Until now.
Emily Blunt is a thief and con artist. She’s been quite successful until she pulls one over on the wrong person (Rupert Everett) and he hires the aforementioned Mr. Nighy to take care of her. And he plans to, really he does. But as he tracks her, he witnesses her captivating ability to manipulate the world around her, he finds himself unable to finish her off. Indeed, he abandons his job and reputation to become her staunch defender.
A cute, quirky action comedy with a dash of romance with strong performances from Nighy and Blunt, plus Rupert Grint demonstrates his ability to hold his own against the main characters.
I recommend it for 4 out of 5 stars.
