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.
Cool. I'm a sucker for Jolie & McAvoy being badass.
Perfect, light and entertaining action movie for Thursday night.
This is everything I want in an action movie
James McAvoy is the fucking best
A messy, ugly film that cannot capture Mark Millars spirit, comedic ability, or sheer intelligent design.
Fun and that's about it.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Like Kick Ass 1 and Kingsman, Mark Millar comic book properties have always turned out to be great movies, and this is no exception. Fun as hell, and with great action scenes to boot. This is comic book action fun. The cast is great, James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman as the bad guy nonetheless, Angelina Jolie. And all are great. The action scenes, that last gunfight in particular, are spectacular. While I liked Kingsman a lot better this is still a fun movie. Wildly enjoyable.
Loved this movie. Fast paced action. Recommend.
Wanted is like "Matrix", only more contemporary. A young man suffering with a Quarter Life Crisis meets a girl [who can shoot like, well, Trinity] and finds out that his life has a better purpose, pretty much like Neo. That was just the basic introduction of the plot, there is more to it.
"Wanted" is one of the most ridiculously awesome thing I have watched. It has action sequences that makes many classic action movies look elementary.
For every action film maker out there, you want to put over the top action scenes, this is your reference material.
5 stars for that climax, never thought James McAvoy could pull something like this, I am definitely a fan now.
Increasing previous rating a half star for the Morgan Freeman reading of the line 'Shoot this motherfucker'. In one utterance, he tops every 'motherfucker' Sam Jackson has ever even thought to deliver.
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
