WILD TARGET Review...


Today the hilarious action-packed comedy WILD TARGET arrives on Blu-ray and DVD!

Critically-acclaimed as an uproarious and not-to-be-missed hit, WILD TARGET shoots onto Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on February 8. This fast-paced British comedy aims to kill with lively performances by Bill Nighy (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1), Emily Blunt (The Young Victoria, The Devil Wears Prada), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter Series) and Rupert Everett (My Best Friend's Wedding, Shrek 2).

From director Jonathan Lynn (The Whole Nine Yards) comes this lively British remake of the 1993 French hit “Cible Emouvante.” Victor Maynard (Nighy) is a middle-aged, solitary assassin whose professional routine is interrupted when he falls for his intended hit, Rose (Blunt). When he spares Rose’s life, Victor inadvertently acquires a young apprentice, Tony (Grint). Believing Victor to be a private detective, his two new companions tag along, while he attempts to thwart the murderous intentions of his unhappy client, resulting in comedic mayhem.

If you like comedy you'll love Wild Target. This movie is full of action and lots of laughs. Victor Maynard (Bill Nighy) is an assassin in this movie. Before he meets Rose (Emily Blunt) he is doing a job when the guy he's going to kill says... who are you? He says I'm Victor Maynard then kills the guy. Then the parrot says Victor Maynard, Victor Maynard so he goes to kill the parrot but then decides to take it to give to his mother as a present.

Then he is hired to kill Rose but he falls for her. When he doesn't do the job they hire another assassin to kill her but Victor Maynard kills that assassin and starts to protect Rose. That's when the fun starts. They end up meeting a guy named Tony (Rupert Grint) who gets caught in the middle of everything because he happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Victor decides to have Tony be his apprentice. The Blu-ray has a special feature: on target with Emily Blunt.

This is a great movie that my family enjoyed!
