    First I have to say that I never read the comic Wanted by Mark Millar, and I'm betting that is I had, I'd like this movie even less... and there's not much room for this film to go down in my eyes.

    Angelina Jolie as eye candy cannot save this film about superhuman assassins that get their kill orders from a magic loom.

    I'm not kidding.

    In addition to the ridiculous premise that can't decide if it wants to be magic or technology, there are impossible coincidences - incredibly impossible coincidences (can you imagine beating someone over the head with a computer keyboard such that the buttons pop off and spell words in mid air?), plenty of "gimme a break moments" and a deus ex machina or five.

    If you want wild action try a Hong Kong action film instead.

      based very loosely on the comic. 0

      Wanted is loosely based on the comic written by Mark Millar and J.G Jones and when I say "loosely based" I mean very very very loosely based on the comic. When I heard about this movie coming out I decided I wanted to read the graphic novel it was based on before watching the actual movie and I gotta say that this movie is the worst adaption from comic to film because it has almost nothing to do with the comic, except the name and the names of a couple of the characters but the movie itself isn'...
