Wanted


Wanted is an action movie loosely based on a comic book of the same name. I have read the comic book before watching the movie and frankly, the movie does not live up to expectations.

For one, the movie deviates too much from the source. Now, that itself is not a bad thing. However, the ways the movie deviates are aweful. I hated the whole concept of the loom of fate. I think the original comic book idea of a secret society of super villians was much better. Second, the movie kind of fails to deliver the original message which, in short, is that the youth should be anti-establishment. The whole curving bullets idea was very corny and became ridiculous in the final scene. Also, it the movie doesn't deal with the protagonist wanting to go back to his former life at all.

My rating: 2/5 (Time pass)
