Angelina Jolie in Lara Croft mode again, Morgan Freeman playing Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy proving once again why he’s the hot young thing of British acting. Will there be a sequel? Could McAvoy’s Wesley Gibson be the successor to Damon’s Jason Bourne? In a word, no. Wanted was enjoyable but it was no Bourne movie. Not as clever, not as slick, not as hard-hitting, and a lot more violent. Nor was it as CGI-tastic as the Matrix, with which it shared some similiarities or as knowing as Fight Club. It was all-in-all very silly. Cartoonish even. So imagine my lack of surprise when it turned out it was adapted from a comic series. 7/10
