Film Review of Wanted starring Angelina Jolie

Check out Alan’s new review of Wanted here. He raises some very interesting points!

Wanted is a shocker.  I mean a real, legitimate shocker.  Now, you’re probably awaiting the punch line, but I do mean it.  While the film has some big time problems one thing is clear-director Timur Bekmambetov of Night Watch/Day Watch fame did an awesome job.  The budget on this film was somewhere around $70-$80 million but looks much more expensive.  This proper use of budget is truly evident when Wanted is compared to its big-budget brethren, such as this summer’s Iron Man or The Incredible Hulk.  Those films had budgets that were nearly double that of Wanted, yet felt cheaper, more video-gamish.  Wanted has a great look to it and some really fun action sequences-mindless and offensively stupid mind you, but fun action sequences.  The visual effects alone make Wanted worth seeing and the acting, considering the material, is actually okay.  So, good job Timur Read the rest of the review here
