Synopsis:
Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is a cube-dwelling hypochondriac; with a boss who humiliates him and a cheating girlfriend. His life is going nowhere. Wes discovers that his estranged father has been brutally murdered and finds himself thrust into a secret society of assassins, called The Fraternity. During his training, at the hands of a skilled mentor named Fox (Angelina Jolie), this once office-bound wimp develops lightning-fast reflexes and superhuman dexterity. However, with his first assignment, Wes finds out that the only thing more difficult than ending the lives of others, is summoning the courage to take control of his own.

WANTED A BETTER PLOT. - Wanted review by s.j.d

Spoiler Alert
08/01/2009

I will start with the positive,really good special effects similar to the matrix could of been a very good film if not for the plot.Unfortunatly the film relys to much on the special effects which is o.k at first but then becomes a bit boring,i found that wasnt a particular character that your were drawn to and wanted to win or root for.I think the twist in the film could of been dealt with much better,there could of been loads more twists and turns but there wasnt and i was left feeling pretty disappointed.

WANTED more! - Wanted review by Leasa Clarke

Spoiler Alert
24/01/2009

This film made me almost as excited as when I first saw 'The Matrix'. By comparison not as prolific, though has some great action and unexpected twists. I like the 'Karate Kid' - like training montage that kicked ass as there was actual stabbing and violent injuries - and though James Macavoy makes an unlikely action hero he is still great to watch. Women will like his Roger Moore - like Scottish Humour and men will like...well. the fact that he gets hands on with the rather Dominatrix - like Angelia Jolie.

Loads of action, twists and turns slightly reminiscent of 'Fight Club' verses 'The Matrix' - I really don’t know how anyone can not like t
