"Wanted" is as predictable as a daytime soap opera with sequences that scream their arrival about a good 10 minutes earlier, let alone the actual story. After a 50 odd year career, Terence Stamp still acts as well as a shower curtain. I give all 9 points to McAvoy's torso only.

The Matrix + Fight Club + Assassin's Creed - any logic or coherency whatsoever = this thing.

Apparently one of the writers of the book wrote Kick-Ass and Kingsman. This one is definitely more over the top and absurd, but it fully embraces its ridiculousness. This isn't for you if you can't handle that. I personally had a good time with it, and this is probably as good as Bekmambetov is gonna get to be honest. He's a good director. His screenplays are ho-hum. Good effects and turn from McAvoy. I certainly don't think it's one of the worst movies ever made. It's quite entertaining.

Despite a cool premise this movie fails miserably. The characters are annoying and completely unlikable. The acting ranges from mediocre to bad (but in fairness it seemed like some just weren't trying). The cinematography is over-stylized and suffers from the annoying Zak Snyder effect of random bits of slow-mo meshed in normal time. There are a few cool action scenes but nothing you haven't seen before in The Matrix, Shoot 'Em Up or a Zak Snyder movie. Not worth the time.

Take The Matrix with Shoot 'Em Up (minus the humour) and a dash of Fight Club and you've got Wanted. Granted it's not as good as any of these films but it's entertaining on an absurdly over-the-top level. Personally I enjoyed this more than the comic which, like the movie, is just a testosterone laden absurdity but was far more teen-angsty. I guess the film does offer a commentary on unending loyalty to men only out for personal gain but really that takes a pretty big back seat to action.
