In a game of cat and mouse they’re hot on her tail.

Bill Nighy is Victor Maynard, a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, Louisa (Eileen Atkins), despite his own peerless reputation for lethal efficiency. His professional routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to one of his intended victims, Rose (Emily Blunt). He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring a young apprentice in the process, Tony (Rupert Grint). Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous attentions of his unhappy client (Rupert Everett).

Wild Target
A British movie in the tradition of the Ealing comedies. Classy casting… business should be brisk for this frothy and frantic film.
Screen International
A total treat.
Quirky… with flashes of black humour.
