The Virtuoso (2021)



Critic Consensus: Don't let the title -- or the talented cast -- fool you: The Virtuoso falls far shy of even base level competency in its attempts to wring fresh excitement from a threadbare assassin thriller setup.

Movie Info

Danger, deception, and murder descend upon a sleepy country town when a professional assassin (Anson Mount) accepts a new assignment from his enigmatic mentor and boss (Oscar (R) winner Anthony Hopkins). Given only where and when along with a cryptic clue, the methodical hit man must identify his mysterious mark from among several possible targets, including a local sheriff (David Morse). Meanwhile, a chance encounter with an alluring woman (Abbie Cornish) at the town's rustic diner threatens to derail his mission in this noir-style cloak-and-dagger thriller.

Critic Reviews for The Virtuoso

All Critics (53) | Top Critics (10)

Lethargic direction and bland acting drags down what could have been a decent neo-noir.

Michael Caine famously bought a new house with his fee for making Jaws 4. What Anthony Hopkins splashed out on after completing The Virtuoso remains unknown.

Too dumb to actually be any good and too dull to at least be entertainingly bad.

This is a committedly mediocre movie. The script reads like a rough draft that should be gathering dust.

Top Critic

"The Virtuoso" covers well-worn territory - the assassin story is almost a genre unto itself - and director Nick Stagliano, hampered by a predictable script, can't bring much new to the game.

When it's all over and the big twist you saw coming in the first 15 minutes has been revealed, you feel empty, a bit depressed, and like you need another cup of coffee.
