A Most Wanted Man

A Most Wanted Man ★★★½

A solid thriller from the pen of John Le Carre, this story of spies, illegal Muslims immigrants, and multi million bank deposits zips along at a fair old pace.

Not unhampered by cliché, this final appearance from Philip Seymour Hoffman has him portray a hard drinking and smoking German spy who won't work with the Americans but who can't quite pull the case in himself.

Willem Dafoe is here too as the banker's son who is clearing up the mess his father created with the Russian mafia - and one displaced Muslim terrorist lays claim to a huge fortune left by one of those very Russians.

This could have been a bit better, but it is what it is.
