The main problem lies in the script's failure to inject any credibility in the relationships between Victor, Emily Blunt's con artist Rose and Rupert Grint's hapless bystander Tony

A dream Brit-com cast is woefully disserviced by a script that's not nearly as funny as it should be.

A mostly admirable attempt at a Crichton-like escapade that runs out of steam a bit before half-way.

Practically a text book in how ugly things can get when you don't have the right, light touch for this sort of thing.

Wild Target gets its gears gunked up by a detour into the shallow, polluted waters of pseudo-psychological melodrama.

There have been a lot of black comedies about assassins lately -- there have been a few just this year -- but Wild Target may be the first one to contain genuine laughs.

An eccentric little comic thriller filled with enough laughs that I was mostly willing to overlook the fact that it makes virtually no sense as a thriller.

All of this busyness drains away the film's charm, turning what might have been a naughty and whimsical frolic into something glib, hectic and sour.

Since irony is so often director Jonathan Lynn's weapon of choice, Wild Target should have been a good fit. It's not quite.

Director Lynn (My Cousin Vinny), who's displayed his expertise at mixing murder and silly mayhem on both continents, exhibits his stylized flair for pathological lunacy and flaky elegance. Even as the story occasionally feels overwrought and recycled.

The movie's a grand, quick-witted entertainment, a throwback in the best, most welcome sense.

Wild Target takes aim at various styles and genres and misses the mark every time.

Director Jonathan Lynn already made one assassin comedy ... Consider this the lazy encore no one asked for.

It's a film that should've been deranged and malicious. Instead, Wild Target aims to be cute, which completely squanders the potential of the material.

A very French 1993 farce gets a less comfortable British redo in Wild Target, a hectic, charm-challenged comedy about a fussy bachelor hitman who can't bring himself to off a winsome thief.

Wild Target neatly and boringly makes a surrogate family out of its ill-matched trio of caricatures, and its epilogue of domesticity is enough to make you reach for your revolver.

It's entertainment designed to resemble a good time without aspiring to provide one.

Nighy so far outclasses this film that it makes you shake your head sadly at the waste of his talent...wan, weak, thin fare.
