Fabulous Movie Review®

Despite having plot holes big enough to drive a CSX train, an 18 wheeler and a Greyhound bus through at the same time, I have a hard time saying that this was a bad movie because of the movie which I am reviewing next and watched the day after this one. Still though, Wanted is not particularly good. Jolie is skeletal. The beginning tried to be too much like Fight Club. The entire premise of the movie is its fatal flaw, and even though I love to suspend disbelief (or is it belief) and did, often, the plot has to make sense at least.

4.5 out of 10 (Pretty stupid)

I actually really liked this one....Jolie could of been a little less skeletal like you said, but I adore James McAvoy...and loved when he smashes that keyboard on that guy's face.

I guess I didn't mind the "fightclub" feel, cuz I liked fightclub a lot...and nothing has felt like it since then. *shrugs*

it wasn't great, but it was an enjoyable watch for me! :)

the keyboard scene was pretty good.

i love fight club too. i guess it was the Ikea reference specifically in Wanted that bugged me.
