For non-discerning action fans looking to satisfy your adrenaline rush, you can add this film to your most wanted list.

In normal cinematic terms, it could easily be dismissed as gun porn, boyish nonsense or action overkill. Fact is, in the realms of badass cinema, Wanted is damn near untouchable.

The movie never convincingly sells us on its tone, and setting.

Wanted never takes itself too seriously and is fully aware of its frailties. This is fast and furious popcorn munching fodder, which doesn't waste time dabbling in meaningful theorising or contemplation.

Bekmambetov's movie evaporates pretty quickly after it's consumed.

Wanted is too bloody, too over the top, too silly, and too special effects driven. It's also excessively entertaining and fun.

Film Threat

A movie so shamelessly derivative of so many other movies that it ought to have a work-cited page at the start of the closing credits.

Few films have accepted the role of Matrix knockoff with such gusto as Wanted; indeed, at times it's almost impossible to distinguish the two.

...an entirely ineffectual actioner that suffers from many of the same problems that one now associates with the genre.

[It] lacks zing, but McAvoy (Atonement) handles his action-hero stint admirably.

Then there's ADD megatard Timur Bekmabetov's deeply stupid Wanted, coming along to confirm that his deeply stupid Night Watch and Day Watch were no accident

Window to the Movies

A version of The Matrix that didn't bother to construct a thoughtful mythology for its universe, and a version of Shoot 'Em Up that plays it too straight.

Agreeably slick pop nihilism, getting a kick out of its own excesses.

This is an exciting flick, and it helped secure a place in the cinemas for R-rated action films.

Maximum violence and minimum plot are the formula.

Initially promises to challenge the heroism of blindly following your destiny, yet instead descends into an unsatisfactory blur of curving bullets and splattered bodies.

Alas, the Russian filmmaker can only do so much with his American debut's stale premise and lazy plot.

Kudos to graphic novelists Mark Millar and J.G. Jones for coming up with this fun and electric idea in the first place and here's hoping that they can create an ongoing cool environment in which these groovy characters can excel.
