Wanted In 150 Words Or Less

Sorry Pajiba, but you got it backwards:

I want this movie to fuck me.

More importantly, it wants to fuck us all.
It's obviously a strict top.
I mean... even the rats wore strap-ons.

Oh, this is perfect. I am so sad we didn't get to see this together.

Well, if it looked like James McAvoy, who wouldn't want it to fuck them! Or Angelina, for that matter. I'm not picky when it comes to hot people.

I found Wanted to be one of the most lame-brained, turgid and smugly-self-satisfied pieces of steaming cinematic crap I've seen in years. I like comic book movies, I can suspend my disbelief for hours on end if explosions, mayhem and/or Angelina Jolie are involved, but after about 30 minutes of this feeble 13-year-old's empowerment fantasy, I was worrying about what to make for dinner, rather than the fate of these cardboard cutouts (for the record, Fight Club did the whole sardonic/self-loathing voiceover thing about 10X better/smarter, not to mention about a dozen other cubicle-drone-sprung-from-tedious-existence flicks, as well). Sure, there are a few well-staged action set-pieces, but they add up to a whole bunch of nothing in the end, and even steamy Angie can't save this stinker.

Ya know. I actually liked Wanted. A lot. As big dumb summer movies go, it was pretty much all I could want.

SURE the film displayed a reckless disregard for human life (trains full of people), but it was funny and entertaining.

PLUS I found the way they ended it to be kind of ballsy. I mean, considering the sequel possibilities . . . how not to say this without a spoiler? Emmmm . . . the films certainly is not built to support the return of the more A list talent.
