Wanted = most action-packed movie of the summer

Posted by swetooth9, 05 July 2008 · 210 views

Go see that shit! At first, when I saw the preview for the movie (probably saw it 2 or 3 times watching different movies at the theatre), I thought it would be a bust and would be one of those corny action flicks that nobody really likes.

So, I was taken aback when my friend, quite the movie critic himself, asked me to come see it with him and a few other friends of ours. To say the least, it was intense. Shit was off the meatrack by far. It kind of reminded me of Sin City with its over-the-top action and cheesy storyline. But hey, I definitely got my $7 worth from this movie. I will most likely buy it on DVD when it releases. I even considered getting the graphic novel for Wanted (it was originally a comic/graphic novel before a movie), and I don't even like comics/books!

It's that. damn. good.

SEE IT.

Whaaat? That movie was fucking terrible. It was the Matrix trying to be a comedy, and failing miserably. Way too much story, which wouldn't be a problem if the story wasn't dog shit. There were a few good action scenes, but it was like 10 good minutes out of 105.
have any of you read Wanted? from what I've seen of the trailers I can seem it's not going to be hardcore adaption like SinCity but I hope it not completely off the rack like Bourne Identity (albeit Bourne was a great movie anyway)
I really can't get over deliberately curving bullet trajectories. Tell me there's not a lot of that in the film, please!
There's almost none of that. Which is silly, because they spend a ton of time learning to curve bullets...

don't watch this movie plz.
i would've considered watching this movie...but it changed the story compared to the graphic novel...the graphic novel is still one of my personal faves...i can't believe how hollywood pretty much destroyed WANTED...i was excited about this movie...until i saw the previews and realized that it totally changed the story...minus a few things like character names and the main characters background story...
True, Chac, the story was average at best, but the action was pretty damn good.
