        Harmlessly fun little British comedy type thing.

        Bill Nighy can do no wrong, and Rupert Grint shows he can survive outside the HP franchise.

        This one was a lot of fun, with Emily Blunt as a con artist who rips off an art collector, and Bill Nighy as the hit man hired to exact revenge. Charmed by her wild streak, however, he becomes her body guard and the target of the vengeful collector and his henchmen. Lots of great lines, and always the radiantly beautiful Ms Blunt to light up the screen. Not particularly original, but still, for all that, very entertaining. I thought Bill Nighy was just perfect as the meticulously careful hit man, Victor Maynard, who finds himself in uncharted territory. Rupert Grint added a bit of comic relief as a kid who gets swept up in circumstances and becomes Victor's protege. The supporting cast was well chosen and carried off their roles spotlessly.

        Started off okay and then went downhill fast. Was it meant to be funny? It wasn't. Stupid characters and boring storyline. The star is for Emily Blunt and her outfits. I switched it off 40 minutes in. I get the impression she was heading for a romance with the 52 year old hitman, which gives me the creeps.
