Has there really not been any discussion on Wanted yet? I saw it last week, and just now realize I hadn't read anybody's opinions on it here yet.

I'm certainly no movie critic, but I thought this was one of the best action movies I've ever seen. Sure, the LOOM OF FATE was f'ing retarded, and Angelina Jolie sort of looked like an animatronic skeletor-bot covered in magnificent skin, but that did little to dampen the pure adrenaline rush I got from the movie overall.

The keyboard was my favorite single scene. The final run through the factory was incredible. I've seen that sort of gun-switching stuff before (Equilibrium maybe?), but this really impressed me anyway. The ending "WTF have you done lately" was a great way to end a totally badass movie that didn't take itself too seriously.


I haven't actually read them yet, but I know about the comics this was inspired by. I've gotta say that if it were a faithful adaptation, it wouldn't have been as good. That story might make for good reading, but not for a good 2 hour summer movie experience.





Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her.
Harry: That's a special feeling.

So I assume the last line in the film was not:

"This is me fucking you in the ass"?

Call me fuckin' insane if you must, but I thought this was much better than any of the Matrix films.

Loved every minute of it, but I do agree the loom of fate was, maybe not retarded, but definitely not as easy to swallow as a precog or something.

The final shootout was sick, especially when he ran up on the gun that helped him learn to take a punch earlier in the movie. Thanks for mentioning Equilibrium, the movie that made me first take notice of my favorite Batman.

I would highly recommend this to anyone that even sorta likes action movies.



Cena can't be beat because he's some unholy genetic recombinate of superstars past. I mean, you might as well call him John "Realest of the Real, Sargent Rock - Cold - A - Mania" Cena.

Guru, I believe that you are right. That's why O&A have an extra fee to listen to them ($2.00 or something). They are considered "premium" content, and therefore nobody is going to freak out if they "accidently" tune in to them.
