News & Interviews for A Most Wanted Man
Critic Reviews for A Most Wanted Man
Hoffman's an actor who could do just about anything, but being authentically German is not one of them.
One of the countless sad things about losing Hoffman is the realization that we'll never get to watch him single-handedly elevate an otherwise OK movie again.
"A Most Wanted Man" allows Hoffman to go out with not only one of his best performances, but one that epitomizes his strengths.
This is the sharpest, most reasonable tale of espionage and intrigue since John Boorman's Tailor of Panama.
It was shot in dark, lurid, vital Hamburg; Hoffman is the star; and I was completely held.
Audience Reviews for A Most Wanted Man
Hoffman delivers a fantastic and underactedly visceral performance in his last completed movie, a suspenseful espionage thriller that grabs us and keeps us always guessing all the way until it reaches a suffocatingly tense climax and surprises us with a spectacular ending.
Although slow and understated, A Most Wanted Man creates suspense with a new threat in a worn out world of bureaucracy and burn out. Hoffman and McAdams are marvelous.
Philip Seymour Hoffman's swan song is a slow-burning yet always intriguing topical spy thriller that contains a true gut-punch of an ending.
