Everytime I see James McAvoy or Angelina Jolie trying to curve the bullet in the trailer for the comic book adaptation of Wanted all I seem to be reminded off is imagining them playing table tennis on the Nintendo Wii.

I don’t think I’m going to like this movie. Reminds me an awful lot of the cartoon action movie that was Shoot Em’ Up but with better looking people, and the boring actor that Morgan Freeman has truly turned into.

Feels a decade too late after The Matrix and it might just be one notch above Jumper in the glossy CGI stakes…

I don’t think McAvoy is right for this material at all and I’m struggling to take him seriously as an action star. Maybe this should have been the action movie that Brad Pitt starred in with Jolie instead of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

This screams WAIT FOR DVD but for those interested the movie opens on June 27th from acclaimed Russian director Timur Bekmambetov.
