Absolutely agree 100%. What's the big deal? It was predictable as hell, derivative of the matrix and basically the usual action crap Hollywood vomits onto an unsuspecting public fifty times a year!

Looks good, i've been looking forward to this and I still am even more so now it's been rated 18.

How the hell did he turn up behind the last guy? Very good though.

He just jump across a street between two buildings, several hundred feet in the air, swerved a bullet around a corner, crashed through two windows without even breaking a nail and you ask how he turned up behind the guy?!! lol

Looks derivative as hell, but entertaining nonsense all the same.  Looks like it may be the film that the Matrix sequels should have been.  Now go and tell Max.

Blatant Matrix rip-off - 18/6/2008 1:14:29 PM

That is embarrassingly un-original. How can anyone so blatantly rip-off the Matrix and then feel any pride in their work. Can we have some new ideas please!!!! Must try harder!

Does look good to me - not a massive fan of Jolie but she does pull off "Action Chick" quite well. I haven't disliked a film McAvoy has been in and Morgan Freeman is awesome.

Has a lot of potential and the action looks good - is nice to actually have an 18 rated action film where studio execs aren't forcing lower ratings for bigger draws.

Lets not forget that Bekmambetov pulled off two great flicks with Day Watch and Night Watch. Sure there are eliments from other action films like Matrix but that film has been so influential in the genre that it would be hard not to see influences.

Look action films are always looking for a new spin, Wanted is no different. But lets wait until it's released before being too critical. IMO, have to say some of the scenes look well impressive if very implausible, but hey, they are supposed to be "Elite Super Asassins" so you have to expect something different from the norm.

I'd say that's McAvoy's character's father, since he can do that absolutely ridiculous 'bullet curving' shit. So, since the trailers tell us he died, I guess this is from the beginning of the movie. I never read the book, is there any reason why people can do all this crap? Like, do they have powers or what?

Perhaps this is "mind blowing" for 11 year old boys. I can't imagine anyone else being impressed. It looks utterly ridiculous. Cringeworthy stuff.

Joined: 6/1/2008's based on a comic book, it hardly has to be realistic. So far it's looking very similar to Daywatch/Nightwatch and that's not a bad thing for the type of movie it is. If you don't like that type of movie, don't watch it.

clip is ok i guess. i'll go and see this but it just looks like nightwatch/daywatch with a bigger budget, and despite being based on a comic book, the story is exactly the same, nerdy guy gets drafted into secret organisation, becomes cool, kills people. the trouble with nightwatch is that as nice as it looks at times, it's total and utter shit and fails to ever bother trying to make sense and is really draining to watch. daywatch is twice as bad in that respect.  nightwatch was like watching a really bad and confusing russian pop music video for two hours. hopefully wanted will be better but blood and gore alone wont make it worth watching and if thats all it is, i think i might just go and watch the machine girl again instead

It feels so much like the matrix (in a bad way). Most people have seen this sort of thing before, i don't think the films target auidence will be very impressed watching a crap-version of the matrix. Not orginal and not the film its made out to be... that's the truth no matter how many special effects and A-List actors/actresses you throw into the film.

This looks amazing - I feel sorry for you guys who can't open your mind for some ott action. A crap version of the matrix eh? I didnt realise there were any matrix fans left out there after the over-hyped, over-blown sequels. Apart from the Dark Knight, this is the summer movie im looking forward to the most - And let's be honest, there has been some disappointments this year (hulk, Indy 4 - im looking at you).

Lets keep the potty mouths on the down low ok

Yeah, you don't want to offend Old Man Time here.

Oh and the clip is simply mind blowing

Back in the day action stars didn't need to bend bullets to look cool. If there was a building between Arnie and his prey, well he would just shot the damn budiling until he got his target or the thing collasped.

Hmm.  It looks like fun, at least.  I enjoyed Shoot 'Em Up and Crank, so this should be right up my alley....
