Just got back from seeing Wanted, and oh my God.... what a insane BADASS movie. If anyone has read the comic series, it's pretty close to it.... a few changes are made here and there but the gist is pretty much the same. And the last big scene is probably the most kickass scene I have ever seen since The Matrix's lobby gunfight.

It's really an amazing film, very over the top and full of glorious gunfights. :rock

It leaves you very satisfied as the credits begin and you can't help but want more. Really, if you are anything of a Mark Millar or action fan... you must see it.

I'm so floored... can't get this film out of my head. Sad thing is that my Wife said that Wesley.. the main character.. is a lot like me. Too nice. :lol

:lol You get a nice butt shot. :D

It really was a sick movie, I was so scared they would ruin the comic for me... but they delivered. It's really cool. :rock2

Going off of the premise of the comic where the Supervillains of the world killed off all the heroes and are now ruling in secret and watching Wesley learn his destiny and becomes part of that world.....I don't see how this film could tow that line....I've read from a couple of sources that the movie itself kicks ass but that it should have been just a stand alone film not based off of anything.....

Still planning on seeing it but its not on the major must see list.....I like hearing about the AJ Ass shot but when you've seen the whole package (Thank you GIA) its a been there done that situation.

Timur is the next big thing. He has the world in his hands now and he's a nice guy too. They're calling him the Russian Speilberg for lack of anything better but he is a visual wizard and very innovative artist.

Look for great things to come from him.

It definitely removes a lot of the superhero element from the comics and rescrambles things a bit, but it keeps the core of the story the same. Wesley's tale is still pretty much the same, even Mark Millar himself has said he really likes what they have done and that it tops his idea in a few ways.

I LOVED the comic, and was very worried that this would be a travesty. Especially with all of the changes, but I was pleasantly surprised at how great it ended up being. Really, it's one of the most artistic...crazy experiences I have ever been a part of.

I HIGHLY recommend it. You will not be disappointed at all.

The best part of the whole movie was the very last comment made to us the viewers before it goes to the end credits. That, and I loved the scene where he bashes his buddy's head with his ergonomic keyboard, and the keys spell out, well, I won't ruin it for you. You'll just have to wait and see for yourself.

4 STAR ACTION FLICK!

agreed!!! i laughed so hard when he said that...also when Morgan Freeman dropped the F bombs. since i haven't read the comics and thus unfamiliar with it, are there any chances for a sequel?? i didn't expect much when i saw this movie, but was way surprised by it and want more.

The comic ended and didn't go on at all... BUT... it could be added to. That Factory shootout was the sickest thing I have seen in a long time. Just AMAZING. :rock

And that end scene is almost word for word the finale from the comic, I'm so glad that was in this film. That and the work stuff and best friend/girlfriend storyline. It was really a crowd pleasing fun to watch film. I have been thinking about it since I left the theater. Great movie.

cool... yeah everyone that i went with last night was so impressed with it. i think the GF/ Friend sub-plot was funny. i can't help but think what they can do with the story if they want to do a sequel or prequel.

**Spoilers**
and the one problem i had with the plot was this, why would the Fraternity command send kill orders for Sloan and the other assassin's to Sloan??? surely they had to know that they would find out about their pending kill orders. being as old as it is the Fraternity would surely have their own internal people that took care of their fellow members when need be.

Trust me, this is one movie that's definite must-see on the big screen. The CGI and special effects are just too good to watch it on a CAM version.

Saw it today and must admit it was absolutely fantastic! Watching the recent trailers me and my friends made fun of it being totally ridiculous and impossible...but we still watched it for the sake of watching it, and my god was it awesome!

I liked the film a lot - some of the action was off the hook, including the drift scene from the trailer - that's just so creative.

I would have liked them to do more with the super powers - they set it up brilliantly, but don't really use it that much except for the one thing.



As for the question above:
There was no Fraternity command - just fate. Fate just delivers the message - it's up to the humans to interpret the message. However I got the impression that Terence Stamp had his own loom - if so, was he getting the same names?

Wetanut
06-29-2008, 04:51 PM
I had the same question myself Dave. But then I thought -- hell, why am I looking for logic in an illogical film? and just sat back and rolled with it.
Not usually my normal viewing at the theater (I usually wait for rental), but the presence of McAvoy lured me. Enjoyed it very much. Not as much as widdle WALL-E, but was good.

I caught both of these this weekend and we enjoyed them both! I really thought the Wanted comics kind of fell apart in the end whereas the movie came through.

Saw this movie over the weekend and it was Great. I don't see where they left room for a sequel should they choose to do one but I don't think it needs it. I would however like to see a prequel. Now we have to sit back and wait for the news reports of drunk idiots trying to curve bullets around their friends.

Yeah, more of them actually using their powers would have been cool.

It seemed like the first Mr. X was the only one that did with the crazy elivator building jump thing!!

06-30-2008, 12:57 PM
Yeah they made me think it was going to be bada$$ assassins with crazy abilities but that ended with the death of Mr X.
I am going to read the graphic novel to get more details.

Very corny flick, over the top. Doesn't mean it was bad, far from it.

Angie looked worse for wear in that movie. She could use a sandwich.

Just got home from it. Not what I was expecting. Very over the top but it was very entertaining. I loved the keyboard scene but I hated the rats. I probably wont watch this movie again but that does not mean it sucked.

plasmid303
07-01-2008, 12:22 AM
Yeah, I also expected it to be something else entirely. I'm not saying for the better, but still.

The whole weavers and looms of fate thing is lame though. I laughed. Out loud. Heartily. I dunno if it was a big theme in the comic books, but it was dumb in the flick.

The final scene involving Angelina's character was preposterous. (SPOILER) To think that a bullet wouldn't change trajectory after going through what, like, 3 heads - all of which were all in a perfect circle - is pretty silly. But then again, so is twisting a bullet. Why am I complaining?

Darklord Dave
07-02-2008, 09:17 AM
I'm the first person to go "eww" at the Nicole Ritchies and the like, but I don't think Angie is one of them. She looks pretty good in the movie and I'm pretty sure they didn't use a body double.

07-02-2008, 09:24 AM
She's not to the ridiculous level...yet, but I think she looked better before (personal preference)

Saw this a day back, and enjoyed it. No classic, but was for sure cool. Like the Office Space refs in it. Good movie. AJ is getting too thin for my tastes though. Needs to beef up some. Still a babe though. McAvoy was great. Really good stuff. Better than Hancock for sure!

YESSIR!!!! Hancock was alright, but i wish i waited for video. cost me $22 to sit through the movie with a 3 year old crying through half of it. here's the best part: my GF got warned she would be taken out because she yelled at the parents to take the kid out of the theater.

and i think the best part of Wanted is the very end..."What the FU*K have you done lately?"

Well...I was this yesterday, and I felt pretty disappointed...
Acting was crap, story was stupid, and even though I loved the action and fights, what killed it for me was the

rat/mice attack, that was terrible...and lame...

I was really expecting more, oh well...at least we still have HB2, DK and X-F2 coming!! :D

Wanted didn't really blow my skirt up... seems like another one of those movies TBS will play eight times in a two day period, censoring the naughty bits. Nothing really stood out. Bewilderment and apathy were the two prevailing moods, and it gets old really quick. We get it, he's the new guy and they're badasses... big deal. At least you could laugh at "Fight Club" and "The Matrix." Wanted, while entertaining, was much forgotten the moment I left the theater.

THIS is hot? It looks like she was interred in a Nazi death camp to me (referring to the skeletal arm and giant head, not the tattoos, which are kinda cool):

http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b38/DustyFinn/wantednyccposter.jpg

Not that I really care, but while we're on the topic, I really did do a double-take when I saw this poster when going to see Wall-E the other night. Seriously, not a good image for girls to aspire to 'be sexy like Angelina'. She used to be MUCH hotter, IMO.

Yes she did. I think the first thing I ever saw her in was that George Wallace movie with Gary Senise. She looked damn good in that. Her face looks skeletal now. Her ass still looks good though.:lol The teaser poster looks a lot better. They should have just added credits to this image:
