Format: Blu-ray
There’s not very many movies I’ve seen in the past year that measure up as well as “A Most Wanted Man”. Granted, I’ve seen a lot of fun or interesting films that I definitely enjoyed, but this one really hits the mark in a way that others didn’t. It transcends being entertaining and becomes its own sort of enigma. But I don’t want to give the impression that it’s hard to understand, because it certainly isn’t. The plot is easy to follow (once you get used to the German accents), and each character has their own tendencies that you pick up on quickly, but I never quite knew what was about to happen. I was kept on my toes, or on the edge of my seat rather, and I appreciated how unpredictable it was.

Set in Hamburg, Germany, it centers around a secret group of anti-terrorism operatives lead by Günther Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman). After coming across a brutally tortured Chechen immigrant who turns up in the local Islamic community, and is laying claim to his father’s corrupt fortune, they attempt to establish his true identity and motives. And with the US taking close interest as well, it becomes a slow-burn thriller that unfolds with a huge amount of style and elegance.

It’s the kind-of movie you’d want to curl up by the fireplace and watch on a cold December night. Hoffman (who is never not smoking a cigarette in this) delivers one of the best performances in his career, rivaling his role in “Capote”. And the direction by Anton Corbijn is outstanding, giving it a sharp and neat feel that carries throughout. The more I think about it, the more I like it. It’s a definite must-see.

“Günther Bachmann (P Seymour Hoffman) is trying to solve the mystery of a half-Chechen,
half-Russian Muslim who enters Hamburg seeking refuge, or could be a potential terrorist seeking
revenge, after being helped by human-rights Lawyer “Rachel McAdams, who’s very reluctant to help,

I would’ve ever seen P S. Hoffman, on the screen with Nina Hoss” and in Hamburg Germany to booth,
I think this was his last starring role he played, then the sad passing of a man that I think never take
Hollywood too seriously, he never get the roles that showcase his talent, like Capote” and “Before the
Devil Knows your Dead” which both I loved, then some small parts in MI 3” and now “The Hunger Games’
the nice thing about this movie is, everyone involved seem to have a secret of their own, which makes the
movie most intriguing, this is not big bombs or gun fights or hand to hand combat type movie, just edge of your seat,

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Jan. 10 2015
Format: DVD
This is a slow moving spy drama. The film tries to create interest by explaining that the 9-11 bombings were planned in Hamburg. Recently a Russian-Chechen Muslim (Grigoriy Dobrygin) illegally immigrates to Hamburg. His father was a bad guy and his motives are suspect. He is represented by a lawyer (Rachel McAdams). Günther Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman) heads up a local agency that is in charge of anti-terrorism. He has ties to the CIA and has bigger fish to fry.

This is not an action spy film. They don't shoot guns. The first 50 minutes or so build up the story and characters before it gets into gear and once in gear, it moved slowly along. I love Hoffman, but he sounded like he was attempting to do Churchill. The film has some good drama scenes, a few good lines, and a WTF ending I didn't see coming.

For those who loved the novel, or "Tinker, Tailor..." this should be perfect for you. Lovers of action spy films will find themselves dozing off as we see a more realistic story.

Parental guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. 3 1/2 stars

A good adaptation of the novel by John LeCarre. The casting was good, but the overall message of the novel was downplayed, in that the corrupt politics of the nations involved (especially the USA) was less explicit that in the book. Well worth getting!
