DVD REVIEW: Wanted
Wanted puts a twist on the standard zero-to-hero plotline by having white collar Wesley Gibson inducted into a fraternity of assassins who can’t honestly claim that their actions are justified by anything more concrete than fate.
It's an interesting idea, but rather than spend a great deal of time wrestling with this moral conundrum, Wanted devotes itself primarily to delivering vast amounts of eye-candy, in the form of car chases, train crashes and Angelina Jolie.
It’s a film of spectacle rather than substance, but it features excellent performances from Jame McAvoy and Angelina Jolie, and the set pieces will have you gawping at the screen.
