Critic Reviews of "Wild Target"San Diego ReaderNovember 14, 2016
A few tart, amusing lines echo the fabled Kind Hearts and Coronets, yet this British movie based on a French farce falls into morbid silliness.Philadelphia InquirerNovember 18, 2010
The film has to fly by its wits -- and its witty lines -- and by the charm of its stars. This it does, just barely.Washington PostNovember 12, 2010
It's never a good idea to cast Bill Nighy as a buttoned-down hit man.Christian Science MonitorNovember 01, 2010
Practically a text book in how ugly things can get when you don't have the right, light touch for this sort of thing.Newark Star-LedgerOctober 29, 2010

Wild Target is the sort of madcap comedy that breaks a sweat trying to generate a steady stream of laughs, but ... the film only works in fits and starts.St. Paul Pioneer PressDecember 02, 2010
"Wild Target" has fast, quippy dialogue and exactly the right actors to drive it home.Las Vegas WeeklyDecember 02, 2010
When the various elements all fizzle, all we're left with is some likable actors trying their best to save a fading film.
