Femme Fatale Angelina Jolie as Fox in 'Wanted'
We saw the film at Cinema 2 at the SM Mall of Asia July 6, 2008 Sunday early evening around past 8pm in the middle of a mild earthquake in Metro Manila hee! The film's plot is about a Fraternity of assassins whose mission is to assassinate evil wrong doers based on names that appeared in codes found on woven clothings, yeah sounds silly but those hidden codes pertain to the so called Loom of Faith based on the comic book. What's even more silly are the gravity-defying bullets that flies around in curves and even in 360 degree fashion ! Heck, this is afterall the movies so expect some mind-boggling silliness and yet, this same form of silliness manages to flourished into an energizing high-octaned and spectacular adrenaline-rush of a movie in quantum leaps, John Woo-style of action, whew! Clearly, violence never look so good until those John Woo films and John Woo-inspired films such as the Matrix. Casting includes James McAvoy (Atonement) as Wesley Gibson whose evolution in the film from a nerdy loser to an action-packed hero is satisfying, Morgan Freeman as Sloan the commanding cult leader of the fraternity, and the femme fatale of films Angelina Jolie as Fox (appropriately called). Ms. Jolie literally kicks ass in this film in spectacular fashion giving another tough Femme-Fatalic icon since her Lara Croft roles. Another entertaining movie bordering on adrenaline action and magical silliness.
