Wanted

Wanted

I've spent the last twenty minutes trying my hardest to write a pithy one sentence smackdown of Wanted, but I couldn't possibly try any harder to be cool than this film does. Nearly a parody of a wet dream that dude bro's who wept at Fight Club might have, it is the runaway winner of the "Try Hard" award for 2008; no scratch that, the whole twentieth century. This is simply a dumb film. One of the dumbest. And it's flaunting it like a fur coat. I don't need to see John Woo with a lower back tattoo. Overkill.
