This looks like it could be on of the best films this year, behind the Dark Knight and In Bruges of course.
The new Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman film? It's got car chases! It's got silly guns! It's got Angelina Jolie!
THAT GO ROUND CORNERS!
But the guy who wrote the original novel lives two doors down from my GF, so I am very interested.
It was there all afternoon. Bloody uniterested DiSers!
BUT I am sourcing it.
If you manage to find one please post it here! I really want to be able to talk about it!
they've completely warped the original source material past any kind of recognition. i'm not sure why its called wanted now, since it just seems to be Generic Summer Action Film 24. bleck
as far as I can tell from the advert the only thing the film and the graphic novel share are the title and the bare bones premise.
I want to see shit monsters and all the other craziness that goes on in the book, not what looks to be a Matrix rip-off.
you will like the film but the two are mutually exclusive. I am going to ask Mark Millar about it, and see what he thinks, but I probably have a good idea on what he thinks - £££.
It warps it, yes, but it still looks pretty interesting.
it looks like another special effects heavy 'young man realises that there's more to life than what you see on the surface' crappy explosion fest
it looks ridiculously tongue in cheek.
yet. I'll do so when I get home and re-evaluate.
it's sheer ridiculousness made me laugh a lot and I can't work out if that's a good or a bad thing...
Every time the trailer comes on Mr Starshaped does a little gasp at the sight of Ms Jolie, her naked back and hot tattoos.
And Mister Rictus?
Just more sub-Matrix bilge.
I've not read the comics though so I can't really comment on that side of things.
