Wanted Reviews

July 6, 2019
It comes blazing out of the gate flashing the middle finger on both hands, almost daring anyone to hate it.

Although the script is silly, there are kicks galore in Wanted.

All it needs is the car chase, the train crash and the final shootout and I'd be happy.

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.

By leaps and bounds, Wanted is so far the finest adventure of the 2008 summer.

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.

kombinacijom strip-akcije i koliko-toliko realnog lika vi%u0161e nego zadovoljava kriterije neobavezne ljetne zabave

...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
February 9, 2009
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.
February 3, 2009
Agreeably slick pop nihilism, getting a kick out of its own excesses.
January 15, 2009
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.
