Wanted Movie Review by BillyBob (3/29/2012)

Dazzling (but, at times, preposterous) visual effects aside, WANTED's 2 major flaws were - Taking itself way too seriously - and - Being in dire need of some genuine comedy relief.

Wanted Movie Review by Filmkiller (7/4/2008)

As the pendulum swings among the genders and races the oppressed become the oppressors, the oppressors the oppressed. Ten or twenty years ago, the main character would have been a woman, and the story would've been about female empowerment. Interesting that it's gotten to the point where you can actually have a film about...
