Wanted - Review (2009)

It is very successful at stripping its visual style straight from a comic book and transferring it to the big screen - you can almost visualize what this looked like on the page.  That is the main draw here beautiful action sequences performed by beautiful people (Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy.)  Overall the performances are good, but the story is a bit shallow.  Around the halfway point, after the visual effects have lost their original luster the story has starts to sputter a little and my interest waned.  If you can handle the violence it is a fun roller coaster ride, but after a few hills you the thrill wears down.  6 out of 10
