This movie was insane, in all the best ways. McAvoy, Jolie, and Freeman delivered with some nice work done by the supporting cast. McAvoy did a beautiful job with the hopeless nerd to bad-ass transformation, and even though we've seen that transformation in action and/or comic book films many times, we WANTED (no pun intended) him to become what we knew he would become. The fact that it's ultra violent makes it that much more stomach twisting when Wes is STILL getting the crap beat out of him. The twist was a little predictable, but still excellent, and it was nice to know, come the end, that not all "bad guys" only care about themselves. The effects and fights were breathtaking, and it was nearly impossible to hit "pause." For anyone who enjoys action films of any kind, Wes and Fox will rock you.

Wanted was a movie I didn't want to like. I'm not particularly an Angelina Jolie fan, and the premise seemed absolutely ridiculous. However, this is a film that plants it's tounge firmly in it's cheek from the opening frames. Never has a movie so delightfully dived into it's own silliness and insanity like Wanted has. You can't possibly attempt to find anything based in reality in this film. Wanted is one of the most over-the-top explosions of sex, violence, and patently absurd mythologizing ever put to screen. The effects are beyond anything you can imagine. Physics do not apply. Blood flows remarkably freely. And our unlikely hero proves his meddle and saves the day. This was the most fun I had at the movies this summer, hands down...

If you can suspend your belief in the insane for about two hours, you've got a lot to love about Wanted. Excellent acting by James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie and an awesome script that little resembles the Mark Millar graphic novel it was spawned from (in a good way!) propel a fantastic story of transformation and revenge forward to it's inevitable, explosive climax. Hired by a secret brotherhood of assassins, a nobody (McAvoy) finds his calling and in the process becomes someone completely different, the man he was supposed to be. Also starring Morgan Freeman, this violent tale should be great on DVD, especially for those with the hi-def rigs. Some camerawork gets a little hectic, especially in the beginning, and sometimes the special effects looks a LITTLE cheezy, but that's simply nitpicking a great overall work by the director of the international sensation Night Watch. If you missed it in the theaters, pick up Wanted when you can, I'll be getting it as a Christmas present to myself!

I saw this movie in the theater and it is amazing. The special effects were out of this world and nothing you've ever seen before. Even though the special effects were not realistic, it was very captivating and exciting to watch and I left stunned at how different this movie was from anything I had ever seen before. I can't wait for it to come out and own it. I highly suggest everyone watching it at least once, even if you don't like it you have to admit that its visually fascinating!
