    A pretty damn good action movie. Lots of over the top action with tons of blood and gore and interesting cinematography. Not much plot to get in the way of the fun. A perfect example of the brainless action-flick genre. 3 years 4 months ago

    Wanted, the Mark Millar comic, was just okay. I still hadn't sworn off Millar's nasty brand of cynicism, and despite some élans of bad taste, the story and premise still held interest. But I was never in any hurry to watch the film adaptation that traded superhero tropes with high-octane Hong Kong action tricks and assassins. Now that I have, I thought it was a pretty good action flick, with lots of clever moments, and only the most cursory of similarities with the original work. Well, at least there's no shit monster in this version! The amended premise is an excuse not only for cool stunts and gun play, but to make those action scenes completely bonkers without breaking the world of the film, as it were. Subversive fun that doesn't quite become as over-obvious about it as the source material did. 5 years 1 month ago
