With an interesting premise and a capable cast, it's a shame the result is such a dead horse.

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

When the various elements all fizzle, all we're left with is some likable actors trying their best to save a fading film.

Moving Pictures Magazine

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

Rarely in a British comedy have so many richly talented actors laboured so long in search of a coherent plot, plausible characters and even a modicum of humour.

Wild Target is a remake of a French farce, and it shows.

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

Wild Target is the kind of movie that actually uses that angry-cat-yowl sound. That is the kind of movie that Wild Target is.

Slant Magazine

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.

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

The material is badly mishandled, with too little tension for it to grab us and too fractured comedy to make us laugh

The film is directed with a surprising lack of comic spark by Jonathan Lynn.

Screenwriter Lucinda Coxon has clearly never met a corny complication she didn't like, and Wild Target becomes riddled with irksomely madcap happenings by the final act.

It all collapses inward, foundering on its own improbabilities.

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.

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

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

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

Nothing feels like it's been properly thought through, highlighted by the fact that Nighy's 'super assassin' goes about his business by merely opening fire on a crowded market place (using a silencer, of course!).
