Wanted (2008) is an action film which was directed by, the Russian director, Timur Bekmambetov, and stars by James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. The film is an adaptation of the comic of Mark Millar.
The film tells the story of Wisley Gibson (McAvoy), a man who is tired of his boring life, which changes when he meets Fox (Jolie), who gives him the opportunity of revenging his father, who was killed. Fox presents him the boss of ‘The Fraternity’, Sloan (Freeman), who taught him the techniques to become the best killer and get his object; then, he starts to know who the people who were helping him are.
The performances of the cast were really good. Angelina Jolie played his character in a similar form as the other characters of actions film that she stared, but she is excellent. James McAvoy wasn’t very famous before the film, in spite of doing a very good acting. Morgan Freeman is a classic in this type of films, we can always see him playing the boss of some organization, he always played these characters exceptionally well and this wasn’t the exception.
Two of the most brilliant aspects of the film were the special effects in the action scenes and the spectacular sets. An example of the last is the huge textile fabric where the loom works, which is a very important element in the plot.
The special effects make the movie more intense, because it shows in detail the murders, using a lot of the resource of slow motion.
The film is excellent, because it has great performances and fantastic special effects and the story was really interesting, so I recommended it.
