'Wanted' Synopsis

Based upon Mark Millar's explosive graphic novel series and helmed by stunning visualist director Timur Bekmambetov -- creator of the most successful Russian film franchise in history, the Night Watch series -- Wanted tells the tale of one apathetic nobody's transformation into an unparalleled enforcer of justice. In 2008, the world will be introduced to a hero for a new generation: Wesley Gibson.

25-year-old Wes (James McAvoy) was the most disaffected, cube-dwelling drone the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his girlfriend ignored him routinely and his life plodded on interminably. Everyone was certain this disengaged slacker would amount to nothing. There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die in his slow, clock-punching rut.

Until he met a woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie).

After his estranged father is murdered, the deadly sexy Fox recruits Wes into the Fraternity, a secret society that trains Wes to avenge his dad's death by unlocking his dormant powers. As she teaches him how to develop lightning-quick reflexes and phenomenal agility, Wes discovers this team lives by an ancient, unbreakable code: carry out the death orders given by fate itself.

With wickedly brilliant tutors -- including the Fraternity's enigmatic leader, Sloan (Morgan Freeman) -- Wes grows to enjoy all the strength he ever wanted. But, slowly, he begins to realize there is more to his dangerous associates than meets the eye. And as he wavers between newfound heroism and vengeance, Wes will come to learn what no one could ever teach him: he alone controls his destiny.

    Well I love the comic and from the looks of this someone read the comic took the idea tossed the rest and made a movie. Yeah it looks cool ,but it doesnt really follow the comic, I will still go see it, though I have my doubts. If your gonna make a film on a comic, stick to the damn comic or else wirte something else. Its like I Am Legend, if you read the book, the movie sucked balls and had very little to do with the material it was based on. I just dont understand why the studios and writers do this to good comics and novels.

    Okay, if anyone doesnt have the balls to say a comment for this movie i will. First off, id like to clarify that angelina is not just the most hottest woman, but the hottest diva that god has created. This movie looks awesome. Anything with angelina in it ill watch. Anyways, i saw this trailer during the superbowl, and the bullet at the end where it says "goodbye" i thought was interesting enough to where imma go see that movie.
