Summery: Victor Maynard is a middle-aged, solitary assassin, who lives to please his formidable mother, 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. He spares her life, unexpectedly acquiring in the process a young apprentice, Tony. 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.
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. Bill Nighy plays the aristocrat of hit men, from a family of hit people, whose latest target, a thief (Emily Blunt), so captivates him that he lets her live. It's an aberration we live to regret. Released without fanfare in the U.K., the film is unlikely to last long in cinemas there and only the names of the stars might carry it elsewhere, though it's easy to imagine both of them wishing it would just go away.
