Wanted Movie Review

The previews actually help this movie out a lot. The premise is stupid as the previews demonstrate and there are a lot of outrageously unbelievable scenes. This lowers the expectations of the audience enough that the movie is actually enjoyable. I am a bit disappointed that these movies are appearing to be Hollywood's next take on entertainment. First Jumper now this. I think the idea is to compete with the comic book industry. After sitting through this your a loser now a superhuman killing machine type of deal I was longing for the next Shawshank Redemption.

Well back to this film. There is one thing that will blow you mind once seen, and the action that is taken by the heroin is just mind boggling. The end really ticked me off because for a bunch of assassins, the people are a bunch of dumb asses. This movie is entertaining all that being said. It is always fun watching cheesy scenes of people getting blown away. They spent a little too much time with the training of our newly formed assassin. They could have also exploited the scenes with his former life a little more. That would have been great. That part was funny. Keep in mind dentistry when your watching this movie for a good laugh. There is a real subtle joke.

Unfortunately, for Wanted is most people will use that word in reference to seeing this movie. There are too many good movie in the theatres right now to go see this movie. I can't wait until I get a chance to see Wall E. That movie is reserved for my girlfriend. I narrowly avoided having to see Sex in the City so I am going to make sure she gets to see this with me. The good thing is i am looking forward to Wall E, it looks like it will be good. If you haven't scene Get Smart that is still my top pick. To close I have to say that I am a bit confused about the title of Wanted. I don't know what that word had to do with the film. There wasn't a major theme with the police. Maybe it had something to do with the rogue assassin.
