I LOVED this movie. Of course, I didn't like it the *first* time I seen it; I never do. Some movie's are like that with me, that's why I also make sure I see it more than once. Sometime's I'll see a movie at the show and then hate it when it comes to cable or dvd.......The action was SO cool & edgy in this movie & the director was phenomenal. James McAvoy was excellent as well. Those who

"Hot. and better than The Dark Knight." This, ladies and gentleman with good movie taste, is why movies like Wanted and Indiana 4 are produced. Wanted is a terrible waste of money. Bending bullets? Is this a joke? Matrix is the only movie to this day that can pull off some type of bullet-modifying effect. Wanted was horrible, and is by far one of the most user-appraised overrated

This was a joke.. Written by a comic book geek and acted by an actress whose actions off camera are no better then a high priced call girl.

Wanted's hyperkinetic antics are sometimes weighed down by a surfeit of adolescent misanthropy. But the adrenaline-overdose strategy works for viewers as well as hit men. As long as Bekmambetov keeps the pedal to the metal, you don't notice the rotten scenery outside. Full Review

With its pounding, bloody violence, foul-mouthed language and putrid worldview, Wanted isn't comic book-y on a par with "Iron Man" or "The Incredible Hulk." Rather it's an example of revenge of the nerds at its nastiest and most vulgar. Full Review

The thrilling stunts and hyperkinetic action scenes are the undisputed stars of this surprisingly entertaining film. Full Review
Dana Stevens
A compendium of bedside erotica. I don't know when I've seen a mainstream movie that so explicitly caters to the S&M niche. And the chemistry of the central couple, which seemed destined to bring the movie down, is instead the hottest thing in this effects-laden but ultimately empty film. Full Review
James Berardinelli
There are times when the film is flat-out silly (such as the spinning car assassination), but that's part of the movie's charm. At its worst, Wanted is never boring. At its best, it can be damn close to intoxicating. One word, written without apology, describes it best: fun. Full Review
