Critic Reviews



Based on 13 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
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.
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.
It's hard to tell what Wild Target is offering, besides the pleasure of its company.
The script does boast a fair share of zingers, delivered with arch wit by a crack team of professionals.
The New York Times
The considerable wit, style, and skill that Mr. Nighy and Ms. Blunt bring to the project are squandered.
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.
The cast, though, includes a great bunch of Brit faves who have all done better work elsewhere.
A talented cast keep some low-key action and tired gags from derailing this disappointing farce.
It's entertainment designed to resemble a good time without aspiring to provide one.
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.
