First off. I'm not a big Jolie fan. Don't care about action packed gun movies. But, I found this surprisingly different. James McAvoy character is hi-jacked very early in the movie by Jolie and taken to a huge castle to learn that he is too join the "Fraternity" and be trained to be an assassin by the command of Morgan Freeman . You see the movie tru James's character. He goes thru grueling training almost tough to watch and is wondering why hes picked for this as you wonder too. The Fraternity picks out important figures to take out lead by Morgan . As James is in training under Jolie he is told by Morgan that hie estranged father was part of the Fraternity and pieces come together why he is picked. The plots makes nice surprisingly turns and the action is really good!! Morgans character is typical mega leader ego .I think they payed the money for Morgan , so he'd add some dignity to the character which works fine. Not a lot of scenes with Morgan , but always nice to see Morgan Freeman. Decent characters who help James learn his craft. Real fast 2 hours. No dead spots and a nice ending.

energetic popcorn - check, witty - check, absurd - check, over the top -check. I'd add that the laws of physics are broken and rebroken all over the film. Little of what we see is actually possible. The film can't give ideas on how to kill! Good idea.

Not as good as I was hoping for. James Macavoy maybe was not the best option even though normally I think he's great.

This is a movie that indulges the mind in unrealistic fashion at times but it's hard to shy away that its just a great action thriller that doesn't disappoint.

'Wanted' is a film that's having too much fun not to like. Who cares about the impossibility of bullet bending when most audiences accept superheroes with inhuman powers and strengths based on comic book characters. As with those comic book films, it's just a work of fiction and fantasy, and since 'Wanted' doesn't take itself at all seriously, then you can suspend utter disbelief. The casting and performances are all spot on, above all James McAvoy who delivers one of his best performances in his career so far, even if the might not be the best film he's been in. Stylish, funny, competently directed and paced, this is a great action flick with an ordinary story that is more than the sum of its parts due to slick a execution. 4/4*

If you're looking for some dumb fun with ridiculous action, this is probably a good flick to spend your evening watching, but don't expect anything more than just that.

Wanted is loud, fast paced, vulgar and well written. And it's exactly how an action film described like this should be.

Gave this a second watch while on vacation, and I have to say that it's a lot of fun, even knowing where it's all going, and the Blu-ray looks amazing, which is always a selling point with a good action flick.

The film is made up of a fairly ho-hum plot that is completely sold by the eye-popping action and stylized violence, as well as the use of music from several bands that I really dig. Obviously, your mileage may vary as far as what you can overlook with this type of thing, but I really dug it and will re-watch it from time to time.

Well worth a look for the great visuals and use of music.
