Wesley's first assignment, Robert Deane Darden, is described as a 48-year-old man who weighs 180 kg. (396 lbs.). It's strange that his height is given in imperial, and his weight in metric. Also, a 6'1" man weighing 180kg would be quite massive, either very muscular or very obese, whereas the man Wesley's shown to kill looks quite average. Considering other targets' weights are given in pounds, it's more likely this should have been recorded as 180 lbs - which would be quite reasonable. See more »
It's my anorexic boss' birthday. This means there's a certain amount of inter-office pressure to stand around the conference table, eating crappy food and pretending to worship her.

There are no opening credits. The title appears as a headline on a newspaper well into the movie. See more »
For the first half hour Wanted felt like a trailer.Adapted from a graphic novel the film never seems to settle,the actors seem ill at ease with the material and the impatience on the directors part leaves us with a messy hackneyed film of action set pieces and sci fi mumbo jumbo inbetween. The film tries far too hard to be cool which is a shame because im sure it could have been a better film if things would have just been done with a little less haste.James McAvoy,so convincing in Last King Of Scotland is hard to like in this role.Morgan Freeman seems totally non interested but to be fair hes given virtually nothing to do and just serves as filler between action scenes.Angelina Jolie is the real star of this film,she has astounding presence as an actress and suits the action genre,its just a shame we cant find a truly memorable action film for her to star in.In summary Wanted is a fast paced but legless action film that promises much but delivers very little.It leaves you wanting.
