Wanted (2008)

Staring - James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, & Morgan Freeman

The anxious, clumsy and abused office clerk Wesley Allan Gibson has a hell and boring routine life: his obese boss humiliates him all the time and his girlfriend betrays him with his colleague and best friend during working period. When he meets the sexy Fox, Wesley is informed that his father was a professional killer that belonged to an ancient organization called Fraternity and killed by the skilled and powerful Cross, a hit-man that has betrayed the Fraternity. Wesley learns that his anxiety actually is a manifestation of his latent abilities and he joins the society under the command of Sloan. Trained by Fox, he changes his personality and attitude, being prepared to face the dangerous Cross and find a hidden secret.

The Best thing about this movie was the action. The Worst thing.. was the constant use of the F-Word. Im not a fan. And there were a few more choice curse words that maybe I could have done without. But I have to admit the non-stop action was fun to watch. There were lots of fight scenes that kept you going. A few things were very unbelieveable, but if you liked the Matrix, then you can get pass the digital effects and just watch it for the awesomeness. James McAvoy was very real as the lonely, misserable, self loathing worker bee. And when he meets up with Angelina Jolie, she wakes him up. They begin as a clumbsy duo where you can tell she is protecting him, while he hides behind anything possible, but after the predictable training, they begin to work as a unit and you can see that he was meant for more than sitting behind a desk waiting for life to pass him by. I really enjoyed this movie, husband loved the action. Give it a try, if you can get pass the bad words..
