Wanted Review

They could’ve gone in four different directions when it comes to Wanted. They could’ve made it funny with corny action, serious with corny action, funny with serious action, or they could’ve made it an all around serious action movie. Well, they picked the first one and I disagreed with that choice. Wanted has the potential to be a serious action film because it has a decently good plot and story line, which surprised me, but instead you get lame attempts at humor that didn’t even get a smirk out of me and obvious plot twists that I guessed just from watching the trailer. I wouldn’t have even minded the whole bullet curving, or car back flips, etc. if they didn’t try to force incredibly lame and corny jokes at you. From the trailer I knew I was going to see laws of physics broken, but does that mean you can’t be serious with the rest of the movie. Everyone did a decently good job,  but that doesn’t make up for the rest of the movie. At the end of the movie, the main character turns to the audience and asks “What the fuck have you done lately?” and I turned to my friend and said, “I just watched a dumb movie”. I’m not gonna lie to you though, this movie was dumb and deserves a lower grade because this movie could’ve been much better, but I’m gonna have to give this a decent grade because I was very entertained.

Grade: C
