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.

A fast paced rollercoaster of an action movie - Wanted review by PT

Spoiler Alert
10/12/2008

Wanted is definitely not a slow burner. Right from the off you are gripped and can't take your eyes off the non stop action. The special effects and cinematogrophy are first class. If you enjoy action movies like the Matrix etc, this film is a must see.

Angelina jolie lights up the screen like a comet, with her brilliant role as the assasin Fox. As well as the action scenes, Wanted has a great script which has a great twist. The scenes with Jolie though are so memorable, especially the scene in the circular library, Jolies outstanding expressions show us why she is Hollywood gold.

Terrible - Wanted review by CM

Spoiler Alert
26/01/2012

What was Morgan Freeman doing in a film like this? We managed to stick with it for appro. 40 minutes, but it was just endless, pointless chasing involving shooting - just ss over the top.

Mindless, violent tripe - Wanted review by RP

Spoiler Alert
16/09/2013

Morgan Freeman? Angelina Jolie? Tell me you did it for the money - it certainly wasn't to enhance your acting reputation. This is mindless, violent tripe which attempts to avoid boring the audience with special effects, blood spatter and comic book silliness, combining the worst bits of 'Bulletproof Monk' with 'The Matrix'. Loud and silly beyond words. And if Miss Jolie thinks that having multiple tattoos is attractive, let me tell her - it isn't. And poor James McAvoy - you won awards for your performance in 'Atonement' - but not in this one, I'm afraid.

2/5 stars - but only because (unfortunately) I have seen even worse :(
