Movie: Wanted (2008)

Choose your destiny.

Wanted (2008) is an action movie based on the comic book miniseries of the same name.

Here's the synopsis: Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is a miserable young man with a humdrum life who's stuck with his mundane job, bullied by his domineering lady boss, and his unfaithful girlfriend is cheating behind him with his colleague. To cope with his life, he takes anti-anxiety pills.

One day while getting more pills at the pharmacy, Wesley meets Fox (Angelina Jolie). Fox tells him that she's sent to protect him from a man named Cross who murdered his father. Wesley is quickly recruited into the "Fraternity," a secret society of assassins that his father was a member, headed by Sloan (Morgan Freeman).

The "Fraternity" members begin to train Wesley to bring out his special powers that he was born with in order to avenge his father's death.

As an action movie based on comic book series, we'd expect a significant amount of graphical and perhaps, nonsensical action sequences. Having said that, I'd say I quite like the graphic "headshots" and body shots scenes that were done in super slow motion and freeze frame technique. Whether it's gunshot wound or knife wound, you'll see blood splashing everywhere in slow motion. Not for those with a weak stomach though.

Car chase sequences with cars flipping over and over again - a must-have element in action movies are pretty well done too with Angelina Jolie on the wheels of super luxurious cars, e.g. a flaming red Dodge Viper SRT-10. w00ts!

Perhaps the most unacceptable and illogical thing about this movie is the way the assassins fire "curving" bullets by flicking their wrists while they shoot their guns.

Oh well, if you're looking for a logical movie, this is definitely not a good example. For action movie fans who love to watch Angelina Jolie strutting her stuff, this would be a recommended movie. Honestly speaking, I'm waiting for her latest 2010 action flick - Salt. ;)

Update: I've watched Salt. :D
