Wanted

108 min. minutes | Rated R

Wesley (James McAvoy), a lowly office drone, spends his days hunched over an ergonomic keyboard. If not for a certain family trait—namely, the strange ability to send his heart racing at 400 beats per minute—Wesley would remain but a blip on corporate payroll. What pulls him out of his rut is a shady organization known as "The Fraternity," a collection of super assassins who receive their orders from—no, seriously—mysterious stitching from a loom. Wesley is recruited by the aptly named Fox (Angelina Jolie), and in short order he's taking heavy beatings, healing within hours in a regenerative bath, and learning how to bend bullets midflight. And those are the parts that make sense. Director Timur Bekmambetov’s hyperactive direction aims to smother the audience in spectacle.
