Wanted Review

Wanted is a movie that ignores the rules of physics, contains superhero like powers without the superhero element and has over the top stunts and special effects. Basically it’s the perfect summer popcorn movie where you sit, enjoy your two hours and leave. Sure it has its mistakes, plot holes and ignores the rules of gravity but that’s all part of the fun of the movie. It has a theme of the regular guy who becomes extraordinary but then the movie made the point of him having unlimited funds and a special power so that he could do that.

Angelina Jolie, with her tattoos, expressions and just her presence reminds you why she is regarded as one of the most beautiful woman in the world. She honestly doesn't do much but look sexy, but then that’s all she needed to do. James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman both seemed to enjoy their roles as pseudo good guys that kick ass and enjoy doing it.

The story itself is silly with a twist that you probably where not looking for and honestly only existed to create an ending to the film. You could probably spend all day making fun of the script problems and other things but that is not why you watch a popcorn movie. You watch to have fun and enjoy yourself for a few hours and this movie succeeds in that regard. I was highly entertained and recommend you see this movie on the big screen in a crowed theatre to fully enjoy it.
