Wanted - Seeing is believing

If you like fast-paced action thrillers, you are bound to dig this one. However, the action is over the top and hard to believe so if you are looking for 'sensible' real action then pass on it.

The movie is about closely guarded group which has been around for 1000 years, call themselves "Fraternity". They are here to maintain the balance in the world and kill the people in order to do that. So basically they are mercinaries that act on the "web of fate" orders and are suppose to carry of the executions without fail or else there will consequences.

The movie is deftly supported by excellent visual effects, not off-the-shelf visual effects that we are used to seeing nowdays but this is cutting edge stuff and the sound design is also very well done. The movie moves at a fast pace and does not give you much time to analyse the logic behind the action. There was not much scope for the actors, McAvoy, Freeman and Jolie, to showcase their acting talents but all do a decent job.

There are shades of "Matrix" and "Fight Club" but nothing is lifted that could cause copyright issues. (8/10)
