Doormat Wesley Gibson discovers that his recently murdered father -- who Wesley never knew -- belonged to a secret guild of assassins. After a leather-clad sexpot drafts Wesley into the society, he hones his innate killing skills and turns avenger.
An over the top crazy, insane out of its mind action film with a really good performance from James McAvoy, I have come up with a new word to describe a film FUF that's what wanted is, FUF stands for fucked up fun.
This film is one of the most ridiculously awesome things I have ever seen. And yes, that does include Shoot 'Em Up. Seriously, this is just brilliant. There's people curving bullets, people flipping cars then shooting people whilst still in said car, exploding rats and Angelina Jolie.
And I never though the day would come when I started measuring movie badassness on the merits of a character played by James McAvoy.
An adrenaline filled film, with a great performance from James McAvoy. It's just absolute fun, great cast, explosive soundtrack and entertaining action sequences.
When you think about truly entertaining "popcorn movies" of recent years, Timur Bekmambetov's Wanted fits the bill pretty well. Another comic-book adaptation to get the big screen treatment, this was as fast-paced as action films got back in 2008.
James McAvoy plays a downtrodden office worker who's life is passing him by. Bullied at his job, and derided by his cheating girlfriend, he suffers panic attacks as he struggles just to get through the day. His life though is about to change after he meets the stunning Angelina Jolie in a late night pharmacy who informs him that his father was an expert assassin and that his killer is now hunting him. That's the premise here, McAvoy is asked to…
I am for watching this film for a little while and I read some bad comments about it and I can't understand why all of the hate!? This film is totally cool! It has the most crazy impossible action scenes but all were awesome to watch! I had a lot of "wow" moments and it was a pure and good entertainment thriller from beginning to end!
James McAvoy passes from idiot to badass and he did a great job, again! He is a versatile actor and I really admire him. Angelina Jolie plays the type of character that is always perfect for her, so she was great too. Well and Morgan Freeman is Morgan Freeman.
For me this is definitely worth watching and I had a lot of fun!
"What the fuck have you done lately?.."
Exceptionally filmed scenes of exceptional action!
Not as dark as the graphic novel but still packs a bloody punch.
McAvoy proves he can be an A list star and Jolie finally brings out the superstar card she'd always threatened.
And she also shows her exceptional back side.
Wanted is a really fun action film with a really fun concept and awesome action and surprisingly it was actually funny too and it had a great ending.
Just a really cool movie. That's all.
The story line was far fetched and the action extremely outrageous and over the top, but that's what made it fun to watch. James McAvoy was really good and Angelina Jolie was a queen as usual.
The special effects they used to show the adrenaline rush was pretty cool it perks you up and makes you concentrate. The twist was good too as I didn't see it coming, it's a film that refuses to let you get bored basically.
Also the last line of the movie gave me a little bit of a reality check haha. The answer to your question Wesley is nothing, absolutely nothing.
"This is me taking back control of my life. What the f&%k have you done lately?" - James McAvoy
Of all the fine films that came out in 2008, there was one movie in particular that captured my imagination, invigorated my soul, and left me feeling inspired and empowered. It wasn't The Dark Knight. It wasn't Iron Man. It wasn't Slumdog Millionaire, or The Wrestler, or Gran Torino, or anything like that. No, as absurd and silly as it may seem, it was Timur Bekmambetov's Wanted that thrilled me so deeply.
Make no mistake though, Wanted is indeed a silly and absurd action flick. It's a movie that irreverently throws all the laws of physics and common sense out…
At times, it's a little too "X-treme to the max," and I half expected Angelina Jolie to turn to the camera and be like, "Put some Monster Energy Drink in your face and SLAM IT!" But, the action rules and McAvoy's pretty good and Bekmambetov's movies are always stylish and pretty, so this is A-OK.
A unique and violent action thriller worth a boys' night or a Friday blockbuster. I didn't seem to enjoy it as much as many others did, but it is a bit of fun.
i forgot i watched this
Cool. I'm a sucker for Jolie & McAvoy being badass.
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
