But consider my doubts dispelled. Yes, some of the plot points are so out there but in the context of the film they work. Mainly it's because the movie has so much action - 90 plus minutes of completely over-the-top, humo... read more

"It's a choice, Wesley, that each of us must face: to remain ordinary, pathetic, beat-down, coasting through a miserable existence, like sheep herded by fate - or you can take control of your own destiny and join us, releasing the caged wolf you have inside."

In Hollywood, it's an extraordinarily scarce occurrence to behold an action film that isn't afraid to push the boundaries in ... read more

My top 25 comic-book inspired films (25 movies items)

"I had no urge to see Wanted when I saw the trailers. It looked horrible. On opening night, however, I found myself dragged by friends to see it. I warned them that Iโ€™d walk out if it sucked as much as I expected it to. By the time Wesley Gibson goes off on his supervisor & co-workers, however, I was hooked. I wound up seeing it again in theatres and buying it on DVD. Excellent."
