I know that I already mentioned that I am a huge fan of Angelina Jolie but after watching Wanted I did repent for watching it. Yes I repented. Wanted is such a mindless action movie with no story whatsoever. I am totally clueless as to why the big names like James Mcavoy, Angelina Jolie, and Morgan Freeman agreed to do this kind of a commercial flick. None of them actually acted; they entered the scene, delivered their lines, packed a few punches fired a few bullets and went out. Sloan played by Freeman is the head of an assassination fraternity who goes corrupt and starts assassinating people to meet his own selfish ends so that he can always stay the boss. Mcavoy’s father, who was also a member of this fraternity finds out and leaves to stop Sloan at this corrupt business. Sloan’s existence is threatened since he is the best assassin that the fraternity possessed. So to get rid of the father the fraternity hires the son, trains him to be an assassin to kill his father by feeding him another story. The son manages to kill the father but later comes to know about the truth and thus sets out for revenge and manages to kill Sloan – the end. Such mindless shit man! And what role did Angelina play? Oh she did play a super cool assassin with a lot of tattoos on her body, who manages to manoeuvre her car through traffic which is running at a 160 miles per hour and is also an awesome shot. That’s it, she just helped train Wesley (Mcavoy) and later assisted him in his initial missions. I have never been so very disappointed with an Angelina movie before but Wanted disappointed me big time. Infact if I were you I would even skip this review that I have written about Wanted because it is just a waste of time. So you can afford to miss it.
