"WANTED" is hyper-kinetic pulp escapism that stays true to its adult comic book origins. Kazakh director Timur Bekmambetov is in full-tilt overdrive as he brings this ridiculous but chronically entertaining young-male fantasy to life. He demands that you leave your scruples and sense of logic at the door and just go along for the hair-raising ride. Violent, profane and titillating, "Wanted" is the summer's bad-boy and bad-girl movie. James McAvoy plays Wesley Gibson, who's anything but a bad boy when the story begins. He's an accountant who hates his domineering boss. His live-in girlfriend is having a daytime fling with his obnoxious best buddy. He's prone to crippling anxiety attacks, but he's incapable of changing his life. That life changes when a gun battle erupts in a pharmacy. Angelina Jolie, appropriately named Fox, is there to recruit Wesley into an uber-covert organization called The Fraternity. It's a thousand-year-old organization of assassins purportedly formed to rid the world of perpetrators of chaos. There's some interesting but abstruse mumbo jumbo about a medieval weavers' guild that figures into the plot, but remember, everything here is intended to advance the action. Morgan Freeman plays Sloan, the leader of the outfit, and he tells Wesley a rogue member killed Wesley's father, the best assassin of the bunch. Wesley is informed that he has inherited his dad's killing super powers and that he's the logical guy to seek revenge. He agrees to give up his life as a wimp and become a hardened killer. If any of this sounds strange, it is. And it gets stranger as the story moves along. There are slow-mo bullets that fade and draw like a Tiger Woods' golf shot. There are some of the better car chases you'll likely see. There are suicide-bomber rats (real rodents, not the human kind). The actors work effectively to pump adrenaline into the lurid proceedings. McAvoy is the essential everyman who gets to take revenge on an assortment of manipulators and tormentors from the mundane to the epic. Jolie is the slinky bad girl with more body art than an outlaw biker who could whip James Bond in a smackdown. Freeman is the canny authority figure that he does so well. When you sit down with your tub of popcorn, don't expect any form of edification. Just expect a bloody but masterfully orchestrated thrill ride.
