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 hits...an unabashed testosterone-adrenaline cocktail spiced up with a dollop of torture-porn bloodlust... -- One Guy's Opinion
