Wanted starts promising. It starts with awesome mind-bending bullet-through-the-sound-barrier technology they did for the Matrix. The bullet fired from miles away was bent, through the window, through the train, onto a human head. I was fed with the constant backsound of heartbeats that would turn Bruce Banner into Hulk.
Then Wanted shows Angelina Jolie, mother of 6, partner of Brad Pitt, kicking ass and shooting stuff.
Fuckin awesome, eh?
Then we are shown a group of assassins who kill whatever name comes up in the Loom of Fate.
Yes. The Loom of Fate.
No, it does not make Fruit of the Loom undies. It’s a mill machine that encode names in binary code into a fabric.
How?? or an even better question, WHY???
There are more things to love about the movie than the absurd bits. I love Angelina in this movie. I usually like Morgan Freeman, but not this time. I love James McCavoy. I love the bullet through the head scenes. I love the high-adrenaline chases and the orientation beat-ups and the knife trainings.
Beware of the plot twist which goes something like, I AM YOUR FATHER!
Ha ha too late. It was written in the Loom of Fate
Dopeness factor: 4.0 out of 5.0
