Critics Consensus

  • Most Wanted runs a little long and a little ragged, but it's still a solid adaptation of a mind-boggling, true-life story.

  • [Hartnett's] unconvincing performance amplifies many of the movie's worst tendencies.

    July 26, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Quick and pretty constant cutting between different threads of this story keep Most Wanted from feeling as long as it actually is, but it also keeps us from committing fully to any one story, all of which feel slightly underwritten.

  • Does its... job with proficient integrity, but as much inventiveness as you'd guess from that all-purpose placeholder of a title.

  • The result is a three-pronged narrative that inventively plays with structure and time, allowing the natural dramatic tension of Malarek's international chase to nicely dovetail with Léger's ugly experiences in the criminal justice system.

  • The back and forth storytelling works to the film's advantage, as do the strong lead performances by Pilon and Hartnett. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Drugs, etc. - also Available)
