Wild Target (2010) J. Lynn

‘Wild Target’ is a lovely import from Englad circa 2010. Despite it’s cheeky humor, that is a signature of many great films from our neighbors ‘across the pond’, and it’s talented cast it never quite found a foothold for distribution in America. Image

Bill Nighy stars as the films introverted and uptight assassin to Emily Blunt’s quirky and unhinged con woman. Rupert Grint is thrown in as some lovely color and humor to the film, who’s main purpose was to lighten the sexual tension between Blunt and Nighy’s characters, and help avoid a few holes where deux ex machina would had pushed the movie from tongue-in-cheek to just another failed attempt to be slyly funny (see: ‘The Love Guru’).

I found this movie enjoyable and chuckle worthy. It’s quirky throughout int a way that is endearing and not aggravating. It’s not really enough to write home about, but it’s definitely enough to write an adoring blog post about. It’s on Netflix for instant viewing and I would say it’s definitely worth a viewing. So grab yourself a Royal Oak pale ale, some fish’n chips and settle in for a few hours of kitschy fun!
