A Most Wanted Man (12A)

Directed by Anton Cobjin
Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Wright, Rachel McAdams, Daniel BrĂ¼el

The late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman goes all German in this espionage thriller that sees German Intelligence trying to reel in a suspected terrorist/ Chechen refugee. Robin Wright with an alarmingly dark dye job and Rachel McAdams join in the fun. It's competent and softly spoken and really rather dull! TV does this sort of story so well - 'The Honourable Woman' with Maggie Gyllenhaal recently blows the socks off this pretty formulaic Tinker Tailor-wannabe. Hoffman is rumpled and slobbish as usual but it is a low key performance in a low key film. 6/10
