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.
Crazy but good fun
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A 4 star movie bumped up to a 4.5 because of that action sequence where the protagonist assaults the castle.
The plot is over the top sure, but the film is a great pure adrenaline rush that has a gritty feel to it. The cast is great, Jolie, Freeman and McAvoy all play their roles well, and the camera work is good as well.
Holds up as a dark, edgy and sometimes very funny superhero/assassin satire. Chris Pratt excels in an early minor role too.
For me this will always be the poor mans KIck-Ass, and there's nothing wrong with that. Sometimes you just need a mind-numbingly stupid romp, and this fits the bill nicely. It never has that massive stand out moment, but never has a cringe worthy one either. My main gripe is the immature Nu-Metal music that creeps in from time to time, it's unfitting and doesn't age well. Also, why not just leave James McAvoy's accent in, he's one of the best actors of this generation and the Americanized voice doesn't suit him. Last but not least, would someone force feed Angelina some tofu or something, for Christ's sake woman, just look at that oddly shaped limp arm in the poster..... Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
I "wanted" to see this since I saw the frantic preview. I quite enjoyed the actual movie, especially the flashy action, but I "wanted" to appreciate it a lot more, but couldn't. Ange very sultry and I "wanted" her more than I have in any other film except maybe the one where she stole Jen's hubby. She's the best thing about this time-filler, which is silly and predictable but perhaps less silly than its comic inspiration and it has the consistency and visual power which its genre contemporary "Jumper" (with which it shares some concepts) perhaps "wanted". I've "wanted" to think of a few more ways to drop the word "wanted" into this review since I started it, but probably not as much as you've "wanted" to stop reading it.
Alot dumber than i can remember, but hey! They invented bulletbending, so it can be as stupid as it wants.
The motherfucker can curve a bullet...what else do you need to watch this?
This film is trying so hard to be subversive, so very hard to be highly stylized, so desperately trying to cover up that it's just a shallow, rather generic action film with inconsistent direction, no real plot and dull action scenes. James MacAvoy is great as always, but his character is constantly changing on a dime to be whatever kind of character the script wants him to be at any given moment.
Not another list of the last five Marvel movies, but an attempt at creating The Superhero List To End All…
There is something about super hero movies that I can never get enough of. I can even tolerate a bad…
