Wanted: Movie Review

I'm usually not one to respond well to other mediums transfered into movie format. That's why I was so excited when I heard about the movie "Wanted". Finally a movie that's not based off a comic book or a previous movie somewhere. Well I found out later that this movie was based off a graphic novel but I realize now that it's ok. Being as obscure as it is many people will feel like this movie was made for the big screen, and not some cheesy last minute transfer tweaked to fit on the theatre format.

Wanted is a movie about assassins, not new. But the plot to wanted is so much more. I won't spoil it by giving away any details but I will say that any viewer that loves movies where your challenged to think and constantly change your perceptions of what's actually going on beneath the conspiracy will absolutely fall in love with this movie the way I did. The main cast pulls the movie off relatively well, oddly enough the smaller names do a lot better job in this movies than the big names like Anglia Jolie. From the introduction of the main character to the many scenes along the way everything to the movie felt well structured and logically thought out.

It's rare for me to rave about a movie this much but I guess I've been so dissapointed with lacklustre movies recently especially movies that challenge your mind that Wanted turned out to be a very refreshing change. Although the large scale fight sequences often felt like they were being drawn out for too long and a few parts required you to dispell disbelief for physics breaking fictional rules. The entire story felt like it was being told in such a way that it challanged the viewer to constantly get involved and think about what they were seeing taking the experience of wanted from a passive one to a more active one. This is definetly not a movie you can fall asleep in and expect to understand what's going on every step of the way. But if you like movies that force you to think a little than what you put in will pay itself back.

Wanted gets a highly recommended in my book.
