Wild Target

Odd title, but terrifically enjoyable little film with star turns from all concerned, from Bill Nighy as uptight assassin to Martin Freeman as shark-toothed rival and including feisty Emily Blunt, who bears comparison with Katherine Hepburn. Splendid portrayal of innocence by Rupert Grint. That is not to mention Eileen Atkins and Rupert Everett...

Although based on a French story, this has the authority and wickedness of a classic Ealing comedy. Plot's all over the place but this really doesn't matter as the real pleasure is derived from the performances.
