Wild Target Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Take dead aim at action-packed laughs with this killer comedy featuring an all-star cast. Emily Blunt steals the show as Rose, a free-spirited thief who finds herself in the cross hairs of a world-class assassin named Victor (Bill Nighy). But when Victor spares Rose’s life, the lonely hearted hitman sets off an outrageous chain of events that turn both their worlds upside down. Joined by a gun-toting apprentice (Rupert Grint), the unlikely trio teams up to thwart the murderous intentions of Victor’s unhappy client.

Review: Wild Target is one of those movies that flew under the radar.  It got no promotion to speak of, which is unfortunate.  The film is essentially an action comedy.  Its full of murder and mayhem, with a great british flair of humor thrown into the mix!

One of the stand-out things about this film is the cast.  Oh, the cast!  The leads are Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt, along with the back support of the great, and recently elusive, Rupert Everett!  Nighy plays a hitman with his usual flair, while Blunt proves she can take a primary role in a film and run with it.

Our only complaint about this release is the lack of special features.  There is one little interview with Blunt, but lets be honest we want actors to act, not chit chat.  They're boring.   The film looks great in high-def, so definately go with the blu-ray if you can.  This one is fun and enjoyable, so don't miss out!

Interest Range: Action-Comedy
