Reel Movie Reviews: Wanted
Movie critics cannot always be trusted, of course.

But when so many of them give such glowing reviews to a movie - and when that movie features a scantily clad Angelina Jolie is the role of an assassin - it's bound to catch your attention.

With that in mind, we present the following views on Wanted...

- Wanted has the kind of irresistible summer-movie allure that makes studio executives drool in anticipation. Even its title must swim before their eyes and transform into 'Want-to-See'... -- New York Magazine

- This over-the-top, ultraviolent, hyperkinetic action thriller pretty much has it all... -- Hollywood Reporter

- Like it or not, Wanted pretty much slams you to the back of your chair from the outset and scarcely lets up for the duration... -- Variety

- Possesses a 'wow' factor that will make it one of the summer's biggest unabashed testosterone-adrenaline cocktail spiced up with a dollop of torture-porn bloodlust... -- One Guy's Opinion

Wanted Quotes

Welcome... to the Fraternity. This gun you're holding belonged to your father, he could conduct a symphony orchestra with it.


Sloan: It a choice, Wesley, that each of us must face: to remain ordinary, pathetic, beat-down, coasting through a miserable existence, like sheep herded by fate, or you can take control of your own destiny and join us, releasing the caged wolf you have inside. Our purpose is to maintain stability in an unstable world - kill one, save a thousand. Within the fabric of this world, every life hangs by a thread. We are that thread - a fraternity of assassins, weapons of fate. This is the decision that lies before you know: the sheep, or the wolf. The choice is yours.
