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.

“A Most Wanted Man Is After 9/11 About True Events,
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.

I love Seymour Hoffman but this was not one of his stronger performances. It was still an enjoyable movie but I guess I have come to expect more.Published 14 months ago by Kelly D. Bryson
