Year : 2016 Director : Paco Cabezas Running Time : 90 Genre : , ,
Movie review score
3.5/5

What’s it about?
A girl coming out of a breakup falls for the “perfect” guy, who happens to have a very fatal flaw: he’s a hitman. Well, former hitman who still kills people. And who is on the run from the mob. It’s complicated.

What did we think?
A delightfully quirky film that has most of the makings of a great cult movie, Mr Right just doesn’t quite get there. Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell’s chemistry is palpable and has you entranced whenever they share the screen. Unfortunately the over-the-top performances from the rest of the cast not only steal a lot of the impact of our lovers’ quirkiness they detract from the overall feel. More realistic bad guys and this is the best ever action-rom-com of all time. As it is it’s still a pleasure and worthy of re-watching. The premise behind Rockwell’s amazing abilities and Kendrick’s cuteness alone has me looking forward to a second go already.
