Movie Review: Wanted


Featuring: James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Angelina Jolie, Terence Stamp, Thomas Kretschmann, Common

Genre: action, thriller

Plot: Little nobody becomes somebody… sort of…

Official website:

Comments: If you want to see James McAvoy play a torn character watch Penelope, if you want to see Angelina Jolie look hot and kick ass watch Tomb Rider, if you want to see Morgan Freeman do a good part watch just about anything else. Don’t watch Wanted. The script is so poorly written, even aberrant at times, that I would have to grade it with a minus in front. Cool special effects, way too much unnecessary gore. And the ending sucks. For a movie whose message is supposed to be ‘take control of your life’ I won’t be surprised if we have another Natural Born Killers on our hands when some poor shmuck grabs a gun and start shooting everything around only to blame it later on this lame excuse of a movie.

Rating: 6/10
