Astronaut Sam Bell, who has spent the last few years on a solitary assignment on the moon, watch-dogging a mining conglomeration of machines, is nearing the end of his shift. He’s fallen into a decent, if claustrophobic routine, sculpting a small village, checking the machines, chatting with his computerized nanny, GERTY (voiced by Kevin Spacey). But he starts to have some problems.  Spiraling deeper into what may be insanity, Sam starts to question almost everything, including his very existence.

I havn’t watched the original french version Ciblé Émovante from 1993…But I have no complains because I luvd the British remake directed by Jonathan Lynn… 

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and found the story to be original and funny throughout. I’ve always been a fan of Emily Blunt and here she plays an extremely sexy con-artist who crosses paths with an up-tight Bill Nighy playing a professional assassin hired to kill her.

The characters are likable and well-cast. Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt strike up a modern day love-story that is unconventional and yet somehow totally believable. The family bond that is established with Rupert Grint as the adopted son worked very well and was charming. Grint has given a great performance and most of the laugh-out-loud moments were of his. Emily Blunt is beautiful and is great as the sexy but clumsy con-artist. Nighy is great as always as the Hitman  who falls for one of his target. Very well directed there’s not much to complain about here – it’s just a great comedy and fun.

If you want to see something different, interesting and funny then I really recommend giving this film a chance.
