    Wild Target is the sort of farce where nothing, essentially, is at stake, even as cars crash (including an original Mini Cooper), bullets rip, and knives get hurled with deadly velocity. show more

    The script does boast a fair share of zingers, delivered with arch wit by a crack team of professionals. show more

    Jonathan Lynn's lamentable black comedy Wild Target again shows that attractive and charismatic actors can do nothing to save a movie that's charmless, pointless and witless. show more

    It's hard to tell what Wild Target is offering, besides the pleasure of its company. show more

    An eccentric little comic thriller filled with enough laughs that I was mostly willing to overlook the fact that it makes virtually no sense as a thriller. show more

    A talented cast keep some low-key action and tired gags from derailing this disappointing farce. show more

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

    The cast, though, includes a great bunch of Brit faves who have all done better work elsewhere. show more

    Nighy is usually a treat to watch navigating life's bad turns, so it's especially frustrating that the filmmaker so often leaves him at loose ends. show more

    A.O. Scott The New York Times

    The considerable wit, style, and skill that Mr. Nighy and Ms. Blunt bring to the project are squandered. show more

    This is why I hate it when they do remakes. 99% of remakes do very poorly at the box office, and they\'re always reviewed badly. This is a remake of a french film, and personally , I loved it. Lots of Rupert Grint with shirt off, a plus for any fan. They cast the film wonderfully, but... Hopefully he\'ll learn from this and never do another remake.
