There's not very many movies I've seen in the past year that measure up as well as "A Most Wanted Man". Granted, I've seen a lot of fun or interesting films that I definitely enjoyed, but this one really hits the mark in a way that others didn't. It transcends being entertaining and becomes its own sort of enigma. But I don't want to give the impression that it's hard to understand, because it certainly isn't.
Hoffman delivers one of the best performances of his career, rivaling his role in "Capote". And the direction by Anton Corbijn is outstanding, giving it a sharp and neat feel that carries throughout. The more I think about it, the more I like it. It's a definite must-see.

I stayed with this movie until the end, but found it confusing and ultimately unsure of what and why things happened as they did. The ending lent more questions than answers and found this film to be dull and would not recommend it, as there are better espionage stories out there.

You've got to be a Hoffman fan to find any value in this film. The plot is weak. The script is amateurish, and the cast was obviously uninspired.

Good spy film based on a John LeCarre novel. Philip Seymour Hoffman stars in one of his last roles and its a good one.

This is a 2014 espionage thriller directed by Anton Corbijn, based on the novel of the same name by John le Carré.
I'm quite interested in the movie because it is supposed to be inspired by true events.
However, I've been tottally disappointed because the storyline is not well developed for the ordinary audience and slow-paced.
Although the performances of the actors seem excellent, no directors make a good movie out of a bad script.
It is a pity.

A near perfect film. The letdown at the end in what you see on onscreen is a result of the machinations behind the scene which are truly terrifying. Makes you think about what's going on behind the scenes every time you look at a screen. Welcome to the modern war, same as the (c)old war.

Rated 5/10. Found this movie to be fairly muddled and confusing.

This movie kept me interested until the end although I wouldn't say it was amazing. There's not a whole lot of action to keep you going but if you are interested in espionage, government, and immigrant relations, this movie is for you.

Annabel: You can't do this. I'm a lawyer. This is criminal.
Günther: Sit the fxxk down. Lawyer? You're a fucking social worker for terrorists.
===
Günther: It's just an ordinary pen. Looks like a pen, writes like a pen, and listens like a pen. (reference to a spy pen)
===
Günther: You needed someone to take it out of your hands because you are out of your depth, Annabel. You know you can't save him, not on your own. Your choice is between us and nobody. The clock is ticking. You know they'll find him, and when they do, he'll be on the first plane back to Russia, unless the Americans want him and then we won't know where he is and nor will he.
