I personally had this movie stored under "Crime" but now I've seen it Idefinitely move it to "Comedy". It's just a good laugh the whole movie.Characters well played, story predictable but that does not reallymatter, it's still funny. You won't fall of your stool laughing,but,you definitely will giggle a lot. It's worth looking really, alight comedy, but not a slow moving comedy, events follow each other inrapid pace, well, most of the time. It has some not very seriousviolence in it (though not suitable for the youngest under us). Really,grab a bag of chips, sit on the sofa, good drink in the hand, beentertained.
This is a humorous British story about an assassin and his elusive target. Bill Nighy plays the 55 year old Victor who lives at home with his mother. Being an assassin is a third generation occupation. Victor is "old school" in his job and his mother worries that he may become a homosexual. His hobbies include learning French, chess, and encapsulating his furniture in plastic.Rose is a light fingered free spirit. She had a copy made of a Rembrandt. made a switch and double crossed a buyer. Victor is supposed to kill her, but after a few failed attempts because of her Inspector Clouseau ability to avoid a bullet, he has become an admirer of the girl and in a twist of fate becomes her protector with Ron Weasly as his apprentice.While the story was humorous, it lacked a certain uniqueness. Emily Blunt was good, but I liked Rachel Weisz as a free spirit in the "Brothers Bloom" more.No real nudity, other than Weasly in the bath tub. Tame sex scenes.
Two delightful stars nudge Wild Target into sleeper territory - but only by a few inches.
I thing kind of like this movie its funny and good to watch as well 94mims of this movie is a pretty good time I saw some actors from othermovies like the guy from Inspector gadget 1 who played doctor Claw dida pretty good job on it as he did in Inspector gadget 1 and The guyfrom the Harry potter series acting like a no one did a good job on inthis film I am not sure about the other actors the guy playing the 50year old man look a little bit like Fammer Hogget from Babe and Babethe pig in the city I can't thing of the others but this is funny andgood and charming to watch its not that silly I saw this movie in aschool feel trip I think this one of movies like for the end of 2010great. not bad at all but its underrated give it for its true rating a8.3 out 10 that would be good for it nothing more said what to thinkits funny heartwarming a bit scary sometimes but still good to watch isnot that bad. I give this movie a 10 out of 10.
It's never a good idea to cast Bill Nighy as a buttoned-down hit man.
This review is from: Wild Target [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) The movie was excellent quality. Didn't care for the movie so much. Kind funny but a bit too stupid for my taste.
Emily Blunt (chick from The Werewolf) plays a kleptomaniac or chronicthief --take your pick-- who's pilfering ways eventually catches up toher when she overreaches and sells a fake painting to a "collector" orwhatever the hell he was. This collector hires an assassin named Victor(guy from Underworld using the same name as his vampire character inthat movie) to to kill her. He for some reason --not clear for much ofthe movie-- decides not to. In fact he saves her from someone elseassigned to do the job with the help of the red headed kid from HarryPotter (or a damned good look-alike). After which, panicky, she hireshim to protect her not realizing he was her original hit-man. Now sheand Victor are on the run for their lives when the collector who hiredhim discovers his treachery and hires a professional assassin.My feelings about the first half of this movie can be encapsulated inone word: ANNOYING. It tried to be funny, but was not. Though it didshow a bit of promise when it just started (like so many movies). Forme the movie started it's downward slide into irritation as soon asEmily Blunt's character showed up on a stupid bicycle to stupid musicwith a kind of "Mary Poppins-That Girl" flavor. At this point, I knewit was the beginning of the end; I knew exactly the type of characterthat was now being let loose in the movie. A very familiar character:the vain, self-centered, unreasonable, manipulative, childish woman whothinks she is so attractive and so cute that she can lead every manaround by the nose or some other appendage. I was in the dark for mostof the movie as to why Victor took so much of her crap. She was payinghim but that was nothing compared to what he usually made as aprofessional assassin. And in his rigid manor, he showed no particularsexual attraction. So why, then, put up with this childish, annoyingwoman? Why not say "screw you" and be on his merry way? So even he, forthis reason, began to get on my nerves as much as her. I mentioned thestupid music, right? The movie began an upward climb around the middle or so where I foundthe bad guys likable and funny. EVEN THE MUSIC GOT BETTER toward theend. So basically what you have for a good chunk of the first half ofthis movie is an unsuccessful attempt to be funny, a very annoyingwoman, and music as annoying and childish as the woman herself.Finally: You ever wish there was a button in the theater that you coulduse to slap any character on screen that irritates you? I bet youhave.Probably on more than one occasion. I think that people would payto see a movie JUST for that feature. And knowing this, I can seeproducers scrambling to make movies with the most annoying characterstheir writers can conjure up. So maybe it's not such a good idea in thelong run. Still, the fantasy is nice. Love, Boloxxxi.
This review is from: Wild Target [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray) Despite some directorial goofs (a hit man trying to not draw attention to himself would not move through a market place with his hand inside his coat ready to cross-draw from a low-slung shoulder holster!) the movie presents a wonderful clash of personalities. Emily definitely steals the film, but Bill and Rupert combine with her to create a whole much better than the sum of its parts. And wait until you meet Mother! This is a movie I know I will watch again from time to time.
I don't know if it was Bill Nighy's self-possession, Emily Blunt'skittenish radiance, the way it brightened up the dark humor or what,but I loved Wild Target. From its opening murder to its closing comedicinvocation of serial killer pathology, I was thoroughly amused andentertained. Part of it has to be that there are plenty of jokes andthat they flow out of the established personalities of the characters,two things which surprisingly few comedies achieve. Part of it has tobe the marvelously light touch that director Jonathan Lynn brings tothe proceedings. Maybe part of it was I happened to be in the rightmood for this film's charms. Whatever the reason, this was one of themore fun times I've had recently watching a movie.Victor Maynard (Bill Nighy) is a very British hit-man who, as hisinfirm mother (Eileen Atkins) reminds him, is getting a bit on in yearsto still be single and childless. After all, Victor should have someoneto hand the family business to as Victor's assassin father did to him.When a beautifully reckless thief named Rose (Emily Blunt) scams800,000 pounds out of the menacingly cultured Ferguson (Rupert Everett)for a forged painting, Victor is called in to take her out.Happenstance prevents Victor from killing her until he's fallencompletely under the spell of her audacious, oblivious approach tolife. When Ferguson tries to have Rose killed by someone else, Victorsaves her and the two of them get tangled up with an aimless lad namedTony (Rupert Grint), who demonstrates a surprising talent for violenceand catches Victor's eye as the apprentice he's never had. The three ofthem try to lie low but find they're almost as big a problem for eachother as the hired killers Ferguson sets on their trail.If you pinned me down, I'd have to credit Wild Target with a nearperfect beginning which not only established the tone of its story butalso accomplished that oft neglected feat of giving the audience areason to care about its main character. With twin scenes of Victorpracticing his French on the way to a defenestration and then sparingthe life of the parrot eye witness to another killing, the viewer isclued in to the absurdity of the plot and encouraged to suspenddisbelief about the morality of a professional murderer. Seeing Victorkill two people without remorse and then balk at dispatching adefenseless animal is the hook the audience needs to grab onto Victorand establish a connection with him. So many filmmakers automaticallyassume that connection with the main character exists and their filmsfounder because of it.Nighy is delightful in his portrayal of a proper English gentleman whohappens to kill people for a living. It's a role that invitescaricature but Nighy gives Victor a grounding in reality, or as closeas is appropriate for the tone of this motion picture. Blunt is damnnear irresistible playing a woman with all the chaotic appeal ofadolescent narcissism but without completely ignoring the aggravatingaspects of such a personality. They're absolutely great together,particularly with the interplay of Rose's unfettered sexuality withVictor's more rarefied appreciation of her.And then the relationship between Victor and Tony compliments things sowell. It exists independent of Rose and has its own funny dimension ofdeception and confusion. Victor's inability to distinguish between afatherly affection for Tony and possibly latent homosexuality, andTony's unashamed reaction to his consternation, is wonderfullyinsightful of modern masculinity.I'll admit that Rose gets a bit too stupid at the end and the movieleans a little too hard on the "family vibe" thinly built around Rose,Victor and Tony in a scene that's way too plainly melodramatic for therest of the film. Those minor deficiencies come too late in the game tospoil anything, however.Wild Target was fun to watch. I'm not entirely sure why, but maybethat's part of the fun.
Wild Target is the ultimate British black comedy, which makes arefreshing change from all the Hollywood movie's right now.This ishilarious throughout with laughs going to all the cast. Billy Nighy,Emily Blunt and Rupert Grint give terrific performances with superbsupport from Martin Freeman, Gregory Fisher and Eileen Atkins who makethe most of their time on the screen.There is a lovely chemistry of romance between Blunt and Nighy and youcare about the characters and that's what makes this movie sointelligent, though they commit crimes like Nighy is an assassin andhas killed people and Blunt is a thief, the audience can remainedattached enough to laugh at their predicament but at the same time careabout the characters and what happens to them as Nighy falls for Bluntand at the same time they and Grint become like a family, and that isdifficult to pull off, but this film does it tremendously. It's alsosurprisingly touching in places as the transition from romance to dramato comedy is handled seamlessly blending lovely together. The storythough basic is good enough and the script is structured beautifullywith sharpness and wit embedded within. A terrific British comedy thatis one of a kind. It deserves all the praise it has and will receiveand judging by the 7.8 IMDb rating it has been given I'd say the praiseis high. It's a rating well deserved
"Tony, come and see what happens when you don't clean your gun."What could have been an excellent action-comedy with a great cast, endsup being an okay action-comedy with a great cast.Â Bill Nighy is a professional assassin who turns bodyguard when he feelscompelled to protect a thieving young woman (Emily Blunt) that he'sbeen hired to kill. The two go on the run from other assassins(including Martin Freeman), accompanied by a young man (Rupert Grint)who just so happens to get caught up in their misadventures.Â It's fun to see Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt (mercy, what a beautifulwoman) running around maniacally, and arguing with one another, butWild Target isn't quite as funny as it had the potential to be. RupertGrint's character just seems extraneous, and adds little humor oranything else, to the proceedings.Â I think that Wild Target is worth a rental or watching on TV if you'rea fan of the cast, but I'd think twice before buying it sight unseen.
Bill Nighy is brilliant as the professional assassin in Jonathan Lynn'swonderfully dark and wicked "Wild Target". Ably supported by EmilyBlunt and Rupert Glint this is a very funny story about Victor Maynardthe "best" hit-man there is. From the moment we find out his seventhbirthday present from his father was a gun alarm bells ring and they donot stop when his next target is the decidedly wild target of EmilyBlunt's Rose.The characterisations are so beautifully and brilliantly rendered anddeveloped throughout this film that it reminded me of the farce oncecommonplace in British theatre. The comedic timing of the maincharacters and plot events are superbly rendered in a movie with manylaugh out loud moments.I'd also like to mention Gregor Fisher's rendition of the ratherunfortunate Mike which is a work of art. His performance is worthadmission price on its own.So a film to thoroughly entertain your laughter muscles with. A veryworthy eight out of ten.
...mindless entertainment in a refined style.
It's entertainment designed to resemble a good time without aspiring to provide one.
It all collapses inward, foundering on its own improbabilities.
Victor Maynard (Bill Nighy) is an erudite, posh gentleman who alsohappens to be a professional hit man. Hired to terminate Rosie (EmilyBlunt), a pretty young thief, he instead falls for her. On the run fromthe men who hired him, they are accompanied by a confused stoner(Rupert Grint) as they hide out till the coast is clear.I always enjoy the wonderful Bill Nighy and he has many witty scenesearly on; unfortunately, none of them are shared with Blunt or Grint.Blunt's character is thoroughly unlikable and she has no romanticchemistry with Victor; Grint's drifter serves no purpose in the story,he's awkward, and mumbles his dialogue. The film starts out promisingenough as we watch Victor alone, but once the three come together it'sabsurd and silly.This is an okay rental, just don't expect big laughs or a plausiblescript.
A talented cast keep some low-key action and tired gags from derailing this disappointing farce.
OK, I'm 3 pints to the wind (high ABV), it's New Years Eve, and I justfinished watching this. Regardless, I love Brit Chit - Father Ted,Doctor Who, The IT Crowd, etc, (in general), so... Having establishedthat, I LIKE THIS MOVIE! Bill Nighy makes me laugh with a subtleexpression. Emily Blunt? I love her and I want her. (but not in astalker way, lol) She's just so friggin sweet. Rupert Grint was verylikable and (I expect) should continue to have a fine career. The otherRupert and Doctor Watson (u know) were good bad guys. Sufficientlydespicable. And Mom? DAMN! Thank goodness she isn't mine. Maybe I'mprejudiced because I identify with the "older" dude getting the fineyoung babe (partial spoiler), but I thought it was a well paced, good,light-hearted comedy.
This review is from: Wild Target (DVD) Lots of laughs and giggles and smiles from a most unlikely subject. Just the thought of being a hit man as a proper English family tradition is funny in a dark sort of way. The girl who is his "wild target" is a careless shoplifter with bigger ambitions. Then Ron jumps over from "Harry Potter" to become part of this absurd threesome.
Wild Target delivered most of the things I expected from it. Its quick,light and cool. It gave me a great time. As I said the story of thismovie is not entirely new the main plot to be precise but it has freshcomedy elements in it and all of it was executed pretty well. It gotlittle bit slower as it was going toward the end but after that itrecovered very quickly and ended in no time. I am not familiar withJonathan Lynn's work but now after watching this movie he's likely tobecome one my favorite cool comedy directors.The actors of Wild Target did what their roles required from them, noneof them tried too hard nor they did their roles without anypreparation. Bill Nighy is a great actor, he earned my respect longtime ago. He can certainly do better than what he did in this movie atany given day but like I said he delivered what his role required fromhim. Rupert Grint did his job well, he proved that he can also do otherroles pretty well. Emily Blunt is as usual looking very beautiful, hotand charming, it was a joy to watch her. Rupert Everett, MartinFreeman, Eileen Atkins, Geoff Bell also did their job pretty well.
