The director's Russian vampire flicks are interesting, if uneven, B fare. Wanted takes those B movie sensibiloties to new levels of stupidity (and there are plenty of spoilers in this review). The whole curving the bullet trick I could go with but the idea that the guy's son was the only one capable of doing this job was beyond lame. The training was laughable as if in a few days (could've been weeks but who knows the time frame with this movie) he was able to master this. The butcher knife fight scenes were far too brutal really for the subtext of the flick which was about skill with a gun.
The cast is terrific as you have Morgan Freeman as some sort of all-knowing Obi Won, Angelina Jolie as an assassin (does she have some sort of mortal lock on assassin roles?) who doesn't have to hide her real tattoos (hey, all that aside but eat a burger once in a while because although your beestung lips are nice, you are looking coat-rackish at times in this) as well as the ubiquitous Terence Stamp. The problem is the script is laughable despite some classic lines.
Wait till you get to the dolphins with frickin' lasers...I mean mice with IEDs strapped to their bodies. Willard? Are you there Willard? I'm not making this up. There are actual suicide bomber mice in this.
This movie jumps the shark several times that your jaw just drops how dumb it is. Given that the opening and closing scenes are thrill rides. I still think the whole shoot a bullet from miles away deal is way too implausible in the key murder scenes.
No extras at all on the particular DVD release I saw this on, so very low scores even from the Russian judge on this one.
