Rated 3 out of 5

“Wanted” is a 2008 action thriller film directed by Timur Bekmambetov. It stars James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, and Morgan Freeman in the lead roles. The film is loosely based on the comic book series of the same name by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones.

Set in a world where an ancient order of assassins called the Fraternity exists, “Wanted” follows the story of Wesley Gibson (played by James McAvoy), a frustrated office worker who discovers he is the son of a skilled assassin and inherits his abilities. Wesley is recruited into the Fraternity by a mysterious woman named Fox (played by Angelina Jolie) and is trained to unleash his lethal potential. As he delves deeper into the world of assassins, Wesley discovers shocking truths about his father’s death and becomes embroiled in a conspiracy that tests his loyalty and survival skills.

“Wanted” received mixed reviews from critics upon its release. The film’s stylish visuals, exhilarating action sequences, and impressive special effects were praised. James McAvoy’s performance as the reluctant assassin and Angelina Jolie’s portrayal of the deadly and enigmatic Fox were also lauded. The film’s unique concept and twist-filled plot were considered entertaining by many viewers.

However, some critics found fault with the film’s lack of depth and character development, noting that it focused more on style and action rather than substance. The over-the-top action scenes and the film’s reliance on graphic violence were also points of criticism for some. Nevertheless, “Wanted” was generally regarded as an enjoyable and fast-paced action movie that provided thrills and visual spectacle.

Ultimately, whether you’ll enjoy “Wanted” largely depends on your taste for action films and your willingness to suspend disbelief. If you appreciate stylish visuals, intense action sequences, and don’t mind a story that prioritizes excitement over realism, then “Wanted” might be an entertaining choice for you.
