Format: DVD
This is a British remake of a French comedy, which a lot of folk have said is much better - well originals nearly always are. I decided to judge this purely on its own merits. A lot of Brit comedy of late has been anything but funny and actually quite poor, this however has real charm and some on screen chemistry that worked for me.

I think it is because of some rather good acting and a wealth of British stars. Bill Nighy plays Victor Maynard, a typically erudite, restrained sort of City gent, who earns his money by being a professional hit man. He is hired to take out Rosie (Emily Blunt), but after a bungled attempt he sort of starts falling for her womanly charms. Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame, plays his pot smoking, accidental side kick, and he is really good, I quite liked his character. I think it is because he does it in a naïve childish way, yet is convincing. We also have Martin Freeman playing another hit man, though a lot more ruthless.

Fans of Rab C. Nesbitt will be delighted that Gregor Fisher plays a hit man. I've just realised there are quite a few hit persons in this little plot. To top it all of we have Rupert Everett as a play boy nasty, and Bill Nighy's mum turns out to be part of `the family business' too, that of being hired killers.

It is a pretty good romp, with non gratuitous violence and some very good performances. The plot may be a tad ridiculous, but this is a comedy, and I did laugh a number of times. The real star is Nighy and if you are a fan of his, you will not be in the least disappointed.

Excellent cast, particularly Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt. The characters are all slightly exaggerated but they come together well to produce a funny, if unbelievable, story that is enjoyable from start to finish.

Nighy is a professional hit man hired to kill Blunt, a kleptomaniac and professional thief. However he falls in love with her and so the client has to hire more killers to take care of both of them.

I bought this speculatively, because I liked the cast, and I was not disappointed. Great movie.

Decent cast, good twists to the story but weirdly it just didn't work for me. The funny bits were quirky enough, and not that I don't mind dark humor, something was way off with this whole thing. I don't know where to lay blame on this one. It just missed its target.

DVD extras are all of one approx. three-minute interview with Emily Blunt.

I love British Humour; if you don't... well even then you should find this film well done. There is action, danger, bad guys & good guys and bad guys who are the good guys :) Emily Blunt and Bill Nighy are fantastic playing off of each other and Rupert Grint showed he wont be 'Ron Weasley' forever!

Victor Maynard (Bill Nighy) is an erudite, posh gentleman who also happens to be a professional hit man. Hired to terminate Rosie (Emily Blunt), a pretty young thief, he instead falls for her. On the run from the men who hired him, they are accompanied by a confused stoner (Rupert Grint) as they hide out till the coast is clear.

I always enjoy the wonderful Bill Nighy and he has many witty scenes early on; unfortunately, none of them are shared with Blunt or Grint. Blunt's character is thoroughly unlikable and she has no romantic chemistry with Victor; Grint's drifter serves no purpose in the story, he's awkward, and mumbles his dialogue. The film starts out promising enough as we watch Victor alone, but once the three come together it's absurd and silly.

This is an okay rental, just don't expect big laughs or a plausible script.

For fans of Bill Nighy, you won't be disappointed. Failed assassination, romance, and great hide and seek. The bad guys are suitably stupid and often hilarious.
