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.
Rose is a light fingered free spirit. She had a copy made of a Rembrandt, made a switch and double crossed a buyer. Victor is supposed to kill her, but after a few failed attempts because of her Inspector Clouseau ability to avoid a bullet, he has become an admirer of the girl and in a twist of fate becomes her protector with Ron Weasly as his apprentice.
While the story was humorous, it lacked a certain uniqueness. Emily Blunt was good, but I liked Rachel Weisz as a free spirit in the "Brothers Bloom" more.
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.
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.
DVD extras are all of one approx. three-minute interview with Emily Blunt.
