    "Our purpose is to maintain stability.... kill one, save a thousand."

    Yeah.... that sounds like the Fraternity, all right.






    NOT!!

    I get no sense that these are paranormals, in any sense. FAIL

    I read a synosis on Wanted a while back. I never read the book but I know what it's about.

    The trailer comes off as very different, premise-wise. I don't know about this one.

    If they used a different name then "Wanted," then I would be stoked for it. While the initial plot of it is the same, a guy pounded into conformity finds he is something more and becomes it, the change from supervillians to "assassins" and making it more good vs. evil does take away from the book itself.

    Saveable versions. These files may need to be renamed from "makeplaylist.dll" to "anything-you-like.mov" before they can be played.

    Never read the comic, but that trailer was incredibly lame and generic. Not interested.

    I'm officially done with this garbage. There is no way, being a fan of the book WANTED, that I can accept this film. If I had known nothing about the production of this movie and saw this trailer without the title at the end, I would never have even known it was in any way related to WANTED. Not only that...but it really does look like a lame Matrix ripoff.


    I refuse to even support it enough to bash it in these forums. Hope you guys enjoy the movie.

    hm..I understand why they might want to leave some of the subject matter out of the movie that was in the book...but still. This is not "wanted" the movie based on the graphic novel, this is "wanted" a movie with the same title and some of the same character names but a completely different story that is basically more hollywood drivel and a simple payday for everyone involved. I'll not be watching this.

    Angelina Jolie very much ruined the trailer for me. I don't know why, but she is very miscast.

    For the first time,in terms of comic book movies,I didn't really know what to expect,since I have always shyed away from the book.For once I can look at a comic adaption with fresh eyes.

    I'm a huge Millar fan,but have always heard that this was not his finest work from close friends who read comics.Plus,I'm on a student budget so I'm picky with comic purchases.

    Either way guys,comic book/superhero movies are going to own the better part of 2008,2009 and maybe 2010.Last count,I think there are around 8 to 12 superhero/comic features.Good time to be a geek.

    Felt like litterally puking. Still feel sick to my stomach. They call THIS 'Wanted'???? WTF?! This is going to be worse than both Catwoman and Elektra combined!

    well that sucked!

    well, not in every way but it looked absolutally nothing like the book not in one way.

    i was affraid they would skip out on the superhero/supervillian angle but never did i imagine so much

    **** this movie because the book is amazing and it was one of those books begging to be filmed but this is just dumb

    what a dissapointment!

    Wow, way to go Universal. You take an original and incredibly unrelenting and irreverent graphic novel and turn it into a generic action movie.

    Then the entire purpose of the project is gutted. Rhetorical question here... Besides the supervillain angle, what sets what we're seeing here apart from 10,000 generic action flicks? I see nothing memorable here.

    It depends. If you're into supervillains, this "birth of a super-criminal" tale is not to be missed. If you thoroughly identify with heroes, you might enjoy it less. "Wanted" is definitely not for everyone - for one thing, the artist does not stint on the depictions of gore. People's heads are blown in half almost every other page.

    The premise of the film is already flawed. When Fox and Wesley first meet [which is in a Subway-type sandwich shop] she does NOT rescue him from an attacker. LOL! Hardly. On a whim, she guns down every single person in the place, then whisks him off to meet Seltzer and then almost puts a bullet in Wesley's head herself. There's no kindness there. She does not care about him, he's Seltzer's project. [And in a way... hers.] it's strictly business.

    Anyhoo, I'm going to have to agree with Anti-Moderator here and say that this is so extremely awful, I don't think I'll be following it further. You who want to see this, enjoy. Me, I don't want my super-criminals watered down, thanks but no thanks. Ugh.
