    Anyone checked this out? It was surprisingly pretty funny pretty much the entire way through. Loved it.

    Being as it is based on a very good comic, this movie was "eh, wtf?"

    It was alright. The ending was kind of gay.

    The movie shares mostly just the name with the comic, and everything else was just thrown in because they could.

    I am going to see it soon, but to me it's strange. From what I have seen, it's mostly people that have the power to defy physics and do **** like curve bullets without resistance.

    But it's got Morgam Freeman or Samuel L. It's bound to be awesome.

    How can you not stand Angelina Jolie? Do you like cock?

    You know I liked Wanted. I was pretty distracted throughout the movie, and one of the only letdowns was that ALOT of it was fake. I found myself saying outloud "why aren't they dead" or "he couldn't do that" alot in the movie, and the maternal bitch next to me kept glaring at me lol. Besides the implausibility of alot of it, I thought it was pretty good.

    Well she isn't exactly the best actress, but in this movie she doesn't do that bad of a job really.

    She's a terrible actress and if she didn't have that "I'm so ****ing sexy but at the same time I could probably beat the **** out of you" appeal then she'd be in Sci-Fi movies and low budget porn.

    Drop this movie, and just read the comic.

    Movie -> by the numbers "lol assassin" with a twist that is obvious from minute 5. Terrible acting, story, and the effects seem like nothing more than a vehicle to show 40 ways to curve a bullet. snore. Any movie that has the super secret assassin society take marching orders from a machine that makes cloth is down right stupid.

    Comic -> Pretty awesome. Yeah the movie replaced Supervillains with assassins and some people might think that is good, but the Wanted "supervillains" characters were all pretty exceptional in their own way. In fact the entire book was straight hardcore sweet sauce. Writing anything more than "go read it for yourself" is a waste of words.
