  • Every move Hoffman makes subtly rivets attention. There's the uncanny German accent, the boozing, the chain-smoking, the glances at his assistant (Nina Hoss), the secret life he keeps hidden and the betrayals even Günther can't see coming. Hoffman is simply magnificent. Face it. We won't see his like again. show more

  • I wish I could say that the film gives a great actor a worthy role, but the truth is otherwise. The character is banal — Günther lavishes attention on remarkably uninteresting spycraft — and Mr. Hoffman, like everyone else, is stuck with the glum tone set by the director, Anton Corbijn ("Control," "The American"). show more

  • A Most Wanted Man's cast - a mix of Germans speaking English, Americans speaking English with German accents, Russians, and men and women from the Middle East - is uniformly stellar. show more

    Thought this movie dragged on. Acting is top notch....but nothing to pull one out a short slumber.

    I saw this movie the other day, even after reading all the negative reviews posted here. Mainly because I think Philip Seymour Hoffman was a brilliant actor, and this was his last role. It's not a movie for everyone. No rapid paced action, no outlandish CG effects, none of that. What you do get is a methodical, suspense filled (although slow at times!) film which held my attention for a couple of hours. Is it worth it? Yes, if only to see PSH's final work. I would give it a 7/10.

    This was about 2 hours of torture. Lots of pictures of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's now herion-addicted and unkempt body. I was horribly bored and had no character development or emotional connection. The only reason I think this has any rating at all, is like the emperor's new clothes, no one wants to admit this is terrible because its PSH. Just give it up already, the movie was awful.
