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 adrenaline filled film, with a great performance from James McAvoy. It's just absolute fun, great cast, explosive soundtrack and entertaining action sequences.
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.
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.
0% logic. 100% awesome.
Also, Morgan Freeman saying "shoot this motherfucker."
No he leido el comic,y con esta película no es que me entren muchas ganas.De un previsible tremendo,todo me parece haberlo visto anteriormente, mas y mejor.Se salva James McAvoy y poco mas.
Despite having James McAvoy in this film - it is unfortunately a forgettable type of film. It took 20 mins into the film before I remembered that I had seen it before.
Body Policing/Fat Shaming.
Wish it was an hour longer so we could have some development that didn't involve flying bullets. The post-explosion loom webs everywhere was great, visually and symbolically.
This movie is so ridiculous and so silly with the matrix bullet time. That made the movie more fun to watch. Morgan Freeman, James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie did a good job in there roles.
Wanted is based on a comic book and indeed it feels like one. It was stylish, fast-paced, and full of extremely cool action and awesomely implausible situations. It wasn't even close to taking itself seriously and that's the main reason it worked so well. Its great cast also lent a hand to make it a great piece of solid entertainment.
I have no idea if there was something to "get", but if there was, I definitely did NOT "get" it. At all.
