Wanted (2008)

Genre: Action & Adventure
The theme of Wanted is all about taking charge of your life and making your own choices. It reminds me of a really well known quote in my campus about choices: life is filled with choices, and every choice has its own consequence. But watching Wanted was like watching a series of bad events resulting from a wrong choice. When everything seems to get better and better, it then hit a turning point and go downhill from then on. It’s like a stack of cards that have been stacked up to make a beautiful pyramid but with a single breath came smashing down piece after piece. The action went from one bad thing to another. It keeps you guessing, giving these characters situations which seem impossible to get out off. The action send your eyes and mind into a frenzy. While the sound was continually attacking your ears. There is a handful of story to be told in here but I don’t really see what is the point of telling it anyway. The language used in here is quite unnecessary, I mean I think the obscenities were just squeezed in here to give an edge to the movie. It's like going back to junior high, where every kid thinks that it's cool to swear, when it's not. And there really isn't’t anything to be talked about the acting except for the fact that Morgan Freeman is in here and his charisma almost make this movie passable to watch. The only good thing about this movie is that the cinematography and the action scenes are jaw-dropping. But after the credit rolls, I was left confused about what’s actually happened in that movie?
