Walking into the movie theater, i was not expecting much; some action, an ok story, and hopefully some decent acting. By the end of the movie though, all of my doubt was silenced. Wanted is a movie that grabs your attention from the get go, sets the plot up quickly, and then ends with a twist and a bang.
Firstly, Wanted makes sure to start things off with a bang. It starts off with a gravity defying and bullet bending battle that gets you thinking 'damn this movie is gonna be awesome'. From there it begins to shape up the plot; in a nutshell, a man's father, who is part of the oldest assassination team in the world, is assassinated by a an assassin gone rogue. From then on, the assassin team tracks down and begins training the son of the man who was assassinated.
In between all this and the end, there is a plethora of gun fights, car chases, and other action that gets the adrenaline throwing. As seen in the trailer, bullets curving through the air, and even colliding at times, is present in almost all the action sequences. There are even mind twisting car chases, which you just have to see for yourself.
Wanted is a movie that should not be missed by any action fan, or theater buff in general. The plot moves quick and there is never a boring moment, coupled by acting that makes you care for the plot and characters instead of wishing for the action to never stop. This and a twist that you never see coming makes for an unforgettable and great movie of the summer.
