How do you know what you’re going to see at the cinema next month? You’re busy people – Facebook won’t update itself, and you’ve probably got a relationship to neglect or something. Oh, you haven’t?

A British re-make of a black French comedy, Wild Target is a film that, sadly, never quite hits the bullseye.
