Wanted Movie Mp4 Download
A young man finds out his long lost father is an assassin. When his father is murdered, the son is recruited into his father's old organization and trained by a man named Sloan to follow in his dad's footsteps.
The anxious, clumsy and abused office clerk Wesley Allan Gibson has a hell and boring routine life: his obese boss humiliates him all the time and his girlfriend betrays him with his colleague and best friend during working period. When he meets the sexy Fox, Wesley is informed that his father was a professional killer that belonged to an ancient organization called Fraternity and killed by the skilled and powerful Cross, a hit-man that has betrayed the Fraternity. Wesley learns that his anxiety actually is a manifestation of his latent abilities and he joins the society under the command of Sloan. Trained by Fox, he changes his personality and attitude, being prepared to face the dangerous Cross and find a hidden secret.
This movie was destined from the start to become a cult classic. Interesting camera footage, thrilling action scenes, a dark story line, witnessing a lead character's progression from a normal everyday guy into something beyond your comprehension. Superhero movies of recent years have all been based on the same principle, the Matrix was one non-stereotypical-superhero movie that started in exactly the same way, with the clueless, naive and weak office employee sat at his desk thinking there must be more to life, and then suddenly something extraordinary happens to him, changing his life forever.
But more than any other, this film reeks 'fight club' to me (who's lead-character, or at least half of it, was Brad Pitt, funny how that works out eh?) The style of narration and flow of the plot is almost identical, as is the apathy and even the insomnia of the lead character, the angry and fed-up boss, the unnecessary violence and 'shock scenes', it's all there. If you blink for just a second you could actually imagine Ed Norton in the role. I say all this, not as a criticism, anything copied from a classic like Fight Club is bound to be good, but just that it doesn't do anything really different.
There are some flaws too, at the start, the guy finds out that his dad has died and that he has just inherited 3 million dollars from a guy he never knew, he is then co-erced into becoming an assassin to hunt down and kill the guy who murdered this father (that he never knew but was suddenly so full of revenge for). He puts up with countless beatings, knife attacks, verbal abuse etc. just because he didn't like being pushed around by his boss in the office any more? Hello? The guy's got 3 mil in the bank, he would never need to work again or be pushed around by anyone, why would he choose to be beat up and risk his life for people he doesn't know, and for a cause he has no reason to care anything about, over catching the next plane and going on holiday for the rest of his life.
Another thing, Angelina Jolie, yeah she looks great, but should she? This isn't a Tombraider sequel where everything is enhanced and perfect and you just accept it because you know it's based on a computer game- it's not going to be realistic, but if she was really that hot, she wouldn't go to work as an assassin, she'd be an actress, a supermodel, in porn or something like that. What's the point of becoming an actress and playing yourself? They should've roughed her character up a bit, but then it was probably a clause in her contract that she had to look super hot, else how else would she out-shine the rest of the cast? The final annoying thing was that the main character only had 6 weeks of training, there's nothing to suggest his lifestyle was anything close to healthy before that point given his apathy, and yes we find out that his heart rate can beat faster and that he can use that to his advantage by slowing things down, but that doesn't make him more healthy, far from it. But suddenly after 6 weeks he's shooting like the world's greatest sniper, on acid, he's able to hit bridges with his face while on top of a speeding train and still live, and he can kick like like Bruce Lee. All in 6 weeks! A little more credibility could've easily been added with that respect just by changing the time to a couple of years, something like that. The fact they specifically write into the narration "6 weeks ago I was a no-body" just cries out BS, why even say it? The 'fraternity' the story focuses on, was supposedly 1,000 years old, but it could've been a million years old for all the depth this lent to the story, and what's with the giant magical loom? If it doesn't have an explanation, should it really be in the film? Seems to me that it was added only to show that Sloan was a liar, which in turn cause the lead character to kill his father, and stops miss Jolie from putting a bullet in his head when she finds out at the end, a pretty crucial plot-turner right? So why was it so lame? There are plenty of more rational and believable ways to replicate this part of the story but the way it is, it all ends up a bit messy and trite. They go to visit the founding place of the order, but learn nothing, and talk about nothing, so also go there what for? The final thing that annoyed me was near the end when they try to kill the main character, but they can't because 'We've trained him too well', why did they train him so well? They said they needed him because he was the only one his father wouldn't kill, so why would they need to train him at all? Just give him a motive and a gun, that would be enough, you don't need to teach someone how to bend bullets if they could shoot their target at point blank range.
The action scenes were great anyway, imaginative, well planned and perfectly executed. The camera work, if not entirely original, was awesome to watch and had me rewinding in quite a few places.
Overall, look past its flaws and it's a great cult action film. Memorable and ground-breaking however, it is. . not.
Wesley Gibson isn't exactly leading the life of his dreams. He's stuck in a dead-end job presided over by a tyrannical bitch, his best friend is having sex with his slattern girlfriend, his bank account doesn't allow him to retrieve $5, and he suffers from random panic attacks that send him scrambling for his pills.
One evening while refilling said pills, a pretty woman arrives and tells him his father (whom he had not known since birth) was assassinated on a rooftop the day before. She then embarks in a furious firefight against a would-be assassin, with Wesley caught in between.
If you think this is about as tense as it gets for him, think again. In this action movie directed by relative newcomer Timur Bekmambetov, Wanted is a skillful mixture of high-octane fights and chases interspersed with storyweaving and character development. Both aspects are done remarkably well nothing stellar perhaps, but better than your average Action flick.
Anyway. The movie takes a little while to settle in, allowing us to meet and understand the protagonist and the woes of his pathetic life, and although the pacing can be a little on the slow side at times, it's never really annoying or limiting for one's experience of the film. Soon Wesley is brought into a group known as The Fraternity: a thousand-year-old secret organization of assassins that carry out Fate's dirty work by killing marks chosen by a sort of prescient loom. Now, seeing as you yourself probably had to read that doozie twice, imagine what poor Wesley must be thinking and not only because he finds he's able to wield a gun for the first time in his life to shoot the wings off a bunch of flies.
Eventually he decides to join the Fraternity after 'quitting' his job in a rather beautiful manner, yet his training is less about instructing him with assassination skills and techniques, and more about beating, cutting and berating the living crap out of him. One could wonder what beating a man to a pulp over and over again has to do with training him to become a more efficient killer, but perhaps that's all part of something I don't quite see eye-to-eye with. Anyway, moving on.
The storyline is a long and archaic one, full of twists that are as unpredictable as they are intriguing. It's also about as plausible as mankind ever deciding to commence world peace. From men jumping hundreds of feet from office tower to office tower, to a young and average man suddenly possessing marksmanship talents to make Bob 'The Nailer' Lee Swagger jealous, the action sequences in this movie, while exhilarating and pulse-pounding, are remarkably lacking in credibility or realism. Thankfully the special effects are well-enough executed to hide this fallacy, and the result is an incredibly implausible yet highly entertaining action feature. The whole movie is basically like The Matrix, only minus the swooshing trenchcoats, cool sunglasses and evil computers. We even have a form of 'bullet-time', such as several creative and stimulating shots of bullets colliding in mid-air, though any reference is likely to be unintentional, and merely the product of my over-developed criticism muscle.
The acting is strong and solid: James McAvoy is credible in his performance as poor Wesley Gibson, and Angelina Jolie is as powerful (and seducing) as ever as the enigmatic and ruthless Fox. Morgan Freeman is once again cast as a wise, all-knowing old man, this time as the leader of the Fraternity, Sloan.
The movie has several instances of grotesque images or dialogue, from a pointlessly vulgar vernacular to some rather troubling shots of blood and gore (not to mention a particular scene near the end that will make any Animal Rights activists explode). One can debate whether such graphic content was really needed; not that I mind all that much, it just seemed slightly forced
or inversely, unrestrained. But overall, quite unimportant no-one's gonna be offended by a few swear words or bullet holes when they go to see a movie about a bunch of professional assassins. Unless they're retards.
* * * * * For hitting the screen with brilliant action sequences that unfortunately somewhat lack in the credibility area, I award Wanted 7.5 curving bullets out of 10.
With every bit of sliced flesh and every punctured skull I found myself wondering who exactly this movie is for. Its unflinching violence has earned it an R rating, meaning its desired demographic – teenage boys – is out of contention. That raises the question: Are there really adults who want to sit through this kind of mindless, bullying mayhem?
Wanted is loosely based on a comic book miniseries of the same name by Scottish graphic novelist Mark Millar, with art by J.G. Jones, published in 2003 and 2004 by Top Cow as part of Millar's creator-owned line known as Millarworld. American screenwriting partners, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, adapted the comics into the original screenplay, which was revised in part by screenwriters Chris Morgan and Dean Georgaris. Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy
) and the Fox (Angelina Jolie
) have made the transition to film largely unchanged, the only major differences being their appearance (Wesley being originally modeled on Eminem
, and the Fox on Halle Berry
). Wesley's boss, girlfriend and best friend are also largely unchanged. However, as the main plotline of the comic books (in which all of the main characters are actually supervillains modeled on DC characters) has been altered, many other characters were re-imagined or cut entirely from the film, examples being: (1) Dr. Solomon Seltzer (a short, bald super-scientist and friend to Wesley's father) becomes Sloan (Morgan Freeman
); (2) Mr. Rictus (an evil, ghoul-faced murderer) becomes the assassin Cross (Thomas Kretschmann
) and is also referenced in the film as an assassin killed by Cross; and (3) The Killer (famed assassin and Wesley's father, modeled after Tommy Lee Jones
) becomes Mr. X (David O'Hara
). There are significant changes from the comic book.
- Perhaps the most significant change is the underlying purpose of The Fraternity. In the comic, The Fraternity are a secret group of supervillains with an array of powers and they behave as supervillains would be expected to: committing crimes and killing people. In the movie The Fraternity is a secret guild of assassins who work to maintain order in the world by assassinating evil people. The film portrays them in a far more positive light than the book.
- The book is far more vulgar than the movie and revels in pushing boundaries of taste in terms of violence and sexuality. In the book characters talk much more matter-of-factly about topics such as murder, rape, pedophilia, and bestiality.
- The backstory of the film is entirely different from the book. In the comic a group of supervillains murdered all the superheroes and erased their existence from reality. In the film a group of medieval weavers-turned-assassins founds the Fraternity to maintain order.
- Most of the characters were wholly invented for the film. While Fox and Wesley make the transition largely unchanged Wesley's father is almost completely different from how he was portrayed in the book, Mr X, Sloan, The Russian, and the Gunsmith (Common) are complete inventions. The Repairman (Marc Warren) is an expansion of an unnamed character who appears in a few panels in the book, and The Butcher (Dato Bakhtadze) is created from a scene in the book where Wesley himself is sent to work in a slaughterhouse to help desensitize him.
- The plot is dramatically changed. While the introduction and Wesley's training are very similar the plot of the comic involves intrigue between different factions of super villains while the film deals with the efforts to apprehend one rogue assassin. In addition the film focuses far more on Wesley's quest to avenge his father. While the book version of Wesley is interested in knowing who killed his father it is not a driving aspect of his character.
- Scenes of Wesley's training are greatly expanded in the film.
- The film version of Wesley is considerably nicer and more sympathetic than the comic version.
- The film includes far more moral conflict about the nature of what The Fraternity does than the comic book.
Derek Haas and Michael Brandt have already been hired to write by Universal, but the sequel has been in development hell for the since 2010 or so. The song is called "The Little Things", and is sung by the film's composer, Danny Elfman. No, but there are a couple of interesting shots that give clues about the development of the plot. One of them is when Wesley leaves his apartment early in the film, he tries to straighten a sign on a pole warning about rats. That sign is posted over another one reading "Your fathers's". Following the scene, the camera focuses on the apartment where it's later revealed that this is where his real father lived, thus, composing the message: "Your father's apartment". The scenes with the Russian also give clues, since he seems to be the only true friend among the weavers. He ultimately gives Wesley the key to achieve his father's objective by showing him about the combination of peanut butter and plastic explosives, and saying "imagine if you had a thousand".
