Wanted (2008)

Oh yeah, it gives you the strength you need. It's movies like this & Fight Club that give me all the adrenaline I could ever wish for. Inception was the greatest movie of the century, but still, it doesn't give the same kick as this one does. Not even close.

The story is a story of an old brotherhood of assassins who supposedly receive their orders from god almighty himself and have been acting based upon his orders since ancient times. They also know some fancy things like how to skew the path of a bullet. In the story we follow a seemingly regular kid that is suddenly told he is the son of a dead assassin and is asked to take over. Of course he does, after some hesitation, because it would be no movie otherwise.

The movie is intense, cynical, packed with action and as heavy as it can get. It has a great soundtrack, great filmography and characters you learn to know and care for. It has all I'm looking for in a movie and a "Get out and do something" moral that makes me want to just run run RUN! High five. Highly recommended.

Wanted (2008)

Still SUCH a bad-ass movie.

And I relate to it more than ever now. To the office job. To the wanting to try something different. To the yearning to get out of the rut you're stuck in, like a rat in a cage... if only I were an actual assassin, too.

And you get that pretty dang emotional Angelina Jolie moment.

She's great. James McAvoy's great - though a little annoying initially. He exudes confidence though, the more of the movie that passes, as does pretty much everyone else here.

The special effects haven't all aged gracefully, and when it's over I feel like I missed something, some element, something's just not there, some bit of the build... but I love the most of it. From Jolie's tattooed backside to the comprehensive and all-consuming showdown at the end.

Y'all ain't never seen anything quite like this.

If you hadn't seen this one already, back in the day, back when it was 118% as great.
