This is a non stop action movie. Very little, if any, boring down time. If your looking for a movie with a great plot or intelligent twist or turn, try something else. If your looking for mindless but well done action, check this out.

"Wanted" is probaby the most disapointing movie that I ever saw this summer, if not this year. There are only four things that I got out of this movie 1) How to shoot someone by hurling a bullet around someone before it can get to the target. 2) That train crash sequence is probaby the best train accident scene, until I see "Handcock" in a few weeks. 3) the film's always thinking of new ways of killing someone. 4) Angelina Jolie's backside. It wants to be an upodate of the 1969 movie "The Assassination Bureau," but the film would only concertrate on the special effects rather than on the people in the movie.James McAvoy plays a confused guy who is reculted into the Fraternity, being run by Morgan Freeman. Angelina Jolie plays a member of the Fraternity who teaches McAvoy the fine art of killing. this is Jolie's sexiest performance in years. But her sexual performance alone can't save this movie no more than the rest of the cast. I heard some postive reviews of this movie, but if I'm a minority critic who saids "no" to this film, so be it. Go see the new Indiana Jones movie again.

I love the suspense and learning "the truth" was not what I expected. The action kept me watching and wanting to see what was going to happen next. I thought this movie was great. A must see.

Now if your looking for something with a story line, look somewhere else, however if you have a little craving for something with a lot of bang then you would love it.

If you were a huge fan of the 1st matrix movie then you will like it. There's never a dull moment and you find yourself relating to the main character, a need for something meaningful to happen. Some pretty awesome action sequence's and Mrs. -Jolie-Pitt is pretty bad ass

Good action sequences, a plausible storyline that didn't stretch disbelief to unreasonable levels, and the right combination of humor, violence, and sensuality to satisfy most everyone attracted by the trailer.

Movies like this almost always screw things up with a poor ending, but this one ends well.
