A Most Wanted Man Reviews

May 24, 2019
The 2-star reviews floating around are genuinely baffling. This is a film that requires and rewards a little patience, with a superb swansong from Hoffman and an excellent McAdams matching Corbijn's strong direction.

A Most Wanted Man is an efficient espionage drama that, whilst in no way revelatory, is attuned to its source material's non-heroic and morally ambiguous approach to a well-worn genre.

For audiences who are patient with meticulously paced narratives, the spy story is an intelligent, mature and riveting piece of filmmaking anchored with subtly by actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, an amazing talent lost far too soon.

Corbijn has assembled a fine cast of performers, yet still comes up with a disjointed jigsaw puzzle. Playing unfocused spy games in A Most Wanted Man leaves this peek-a-boo thriller feeling tired and unwanted.

The last minute of this film will break your heart. Good-bye, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

It drags on a little long, but you can't look away.

A Most Wanted Man is a rare feature: a relatively smart take on the war on terror that doesn't devolve into ideological score settling.

As their entire mission rests on the most minuscule of actions, Corbijn has crafted a smart, slow-burn thriller.

In a spy flick, we want to see action. We want to see Jason Bourne jumping off a roof. We want tension, not realism-not smoking and meetings and yakking.

Cobijn doesn't totally conquer le Carré's complicated plot

The end result may look good but it never feels distinctive despite the wealth of talent involved in front of and behind the camera.

It's an engrossing, unsettling, and highly provocative film, and you certainly ought to see it if you get the opportunity.
January 5, 2015
Hoffman's an actor who could do just about anything, but being authentically German is not one of them.
January 5, 2015
Anton Corbijn's new thriller is perhaps the best so far to tackle the war on terror, thanks to an ingeniously twisty and deeply cynical storyline, plus a towering performance from Philip Seymour Hoffman.
