Though I must say, the focal point is at James McAvoy instead. But still, I simply love Angelina Jolie with guns (think “Lara Croft” and “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”) and I love her attitude too. One of a kind, truly.
You’ve got to have quite a strong stomach to take in those over the top intensive scenes that have the pace and the music to match. My recently self-diagnosed sensitive stomach did give me some warning signals on and off throughout the show. I guess that is a good indicator on how intense “Wanted” is.
Yet another comic book adaptation and it is created by the Scottish graphic novelist Mark Millar. Something different from the typical American comic book style I suppose. A kind of strange storyline that involves a thousand years old organization called The Fraternity and these assassins – who have some sort of superhuman abilities I suppose – take in order from a textile loom coded with the target’s names under the microscope. What a strange concept, to kill as dedicated by destiny to keep the Universe in balance.
There is nothing much to say on the acting or character development of “Wanted”. Is it entertaining? Yes. How so? There are enough surprises within the plot to keep the film moving. Some of the computer generated images and sequences are just jaw dropping. Time slows down, at times reverses, to depict some physically impossible moments. Some scenes are just comical. Lots of blood for sure. But if you have got the stomach and in for some fast pace intensified entertainment, why not?
I won’t even mention about Angelina Jolie’s sexy back from shoulder to … oh well, I missed it while reading the subtitles.
Kidding! Ha ha ha!
