Wanted's Best Body Parts

Favorite Movie Quote: "Kill one, maybe save a thousand."

Don't kid yourself. Nobody went to this film to see any of the actors listed before Angelina, and the studios knew it. Are there posters of trailers that feature James McAvoy? Who is he anyway? I saw one site that said they are thinking trilogy; that he is the next Bourne. Give me a break! McAvoy compared to Matt Damon. Unbelievable.

What was the best feature of this movie? Hands down, it is Angelina Jolie's lips. Director Timur Bekmambetov made sure that there were plenty of closeups of these luscious parts. Men melted in the aisles as they came to the screen Next, it was her warm green eyes. They just grab you and won't let go. Unfortunately for McAvoy, they can also trap you into doing things that are wrong.

Angelina's trigger finger is not to be overlooked. She proves that she is a capable match for any bad guy and Willis or Thurman have nothing on her.

McAvoy got a real closeup of Jolie's uterus when she was splayed on the hood. But only Shiloh Jolie-Pitt—and whoever else is in there—knows what it's really like. Lookie James, but no touchee.

Everyone is focuses on Jolie's breast when their eyes stray from the lips. Not on full display in this film, but check out Taking Lives, Original Sin, and, of course, Gia for more information.

It is Jolie's heart that captivates many, and she showed a little when she came to McAvoy's aid in shutting up his girlfriend. The World knows that heart well.

Despite the 20 minute set up in this movie, we really can't focus on McAvoy. There is likely to be a sequel (please, no trilogy) and it will likely feature Jolie again. We can only hope.

I seriously doubt there will be a sequel. If there is it won't be based on the comic book because there is only the six issue series so far. They may revisit the series later, but I doubt it. Wanted did not have a very highly successful fun in its release. If it follows the comic closely enough for the ending, then it would remain open but I hope it does not spawn another Wanted movie. And we get it Ben, you like boobs.

I really don't see that. Lips seem to be featured more in this review. Just because I wouldn't want anyone to miss what was left out of this film so they can have full information, you think I like Boobs?

Actually, that is an astute observation. :-)

I was just saying that jokingly in reference to this line "Everyone is focuses on Jolie's breast when their eyes stray from the lips." People tend to forget about her other features likes her lips. You're an alright guy Ben. :-)
