Movie: Wanted

I couldn’t get into this one. There’s too much repetition in the start, trying to set up the character as a ne’er-do-well with a miserable life that he doesn’t enjoy: in its rare moments of characterisation, it forces the point too much – we understand that the little girl is a young Angelina Jolie, you don’t need to shout it at us from the rooftops – and though its stunts and physics-defying scenes make for entertaining viewing, and are even clever at times, it never quite rises above “average action movie” fare.
