I read the graphic novel a few years ago and it's pretty bad. Wesley in the comics is one of the most repulsive characters I've ever seen; he shots an old man for no reason, kills a bunch of cops out of boredom and rapes a lot of women. Also, Christopher Reevs jokes. Writer Mark Millar is a hack; the only good thing he's ever written was Superman: Red Son. Ignoring most of the comic was the right thing to do*.

Okay, stars works best then. I always convert % into GPA letters, because that is what I was taught.

I really wish you and MWG would use something like grades between A+ to F- or ratings using 5 stars or something. I find ratings by IMDb and RT aren't helpful (IMDb = tens stars is too high, RT = I convert % to GPA letters anyway). At least people universally understand GPA letters and number amount of stars.

Exactly, and when I called it "brainless" and "heartless", I meant that in order
to enjoy the movie, you had to be able to put your logic and sensitivity
aside so you can enjoy the ludicrously over-the-top action scenes.

1. Yes, there was an award catagory of that title a few years back.

2. Don't forget "In The Name OF The King" and "Postal." I swear, if Boll and Seltzerberg get away Razzie free this year, I'm going to need a detailed list of the reasons why that happened.

So in the end, the catagory that best fits this movie would be Worst Teenager Targeted Movie? I thought as much.

Agreed, this is not a movie for the faint-of-heart, It is a heartless, brainless
action movie that never backs down, but that's not the point- the main
selling point of Wanted are the immensely skillful action sequences, and
Wanted delivers on that note by the truckload.

The only Razzie this movie should be considered for is the category of Worst Reckless Disregard for Human Life...this was a great action movie -- I loved every minute of it, but with a very high body count and very bloody -- A very heavy R rating. 

Definitely do not show this to young kids!!

Take time to read the posts above.  No one is considering this movie for a Razzie.  The only reason it's here is because the trailers sucked so badly, most of us thought this movie would suck, too.  However, when the reviews came in, most of the critics loved it.  When I went to see it, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was.

I'm only adding on to this discussion because I saw that this movie might be up for a Razzie... Seriously, this was just a damn cool movie, thin plot aside. It honestly does pioneer new ideas into the genre of action movies, and it deserves to be respected, whether you're a plot-Nazi or not. If you don't like action movies, that's fine, but give credit where credit is due. And a Razzie nomination is not due here.

Calm down, LBSWebsite1.  When it finally came time to select "Worst of the Weak", Head RAZZBerry changed his mind about this one.  The only reason it's here is because, at least to me, the trailer made the film look lame.  But when I saw the film, it was a good movie. 

My favorite part was the train car stuck between both sides of a ravine.  I actually anticipated what was going to happen here, but it was done so well I enjoyed it anyway.

I just got back from this: it was in' awesome! My favorite part was when James McAvoy, goes insane on his coworkers, telling his fat, repulsive boss to "go  yourself" and smashing his "best friend" (who's boffing his wife) in the face with a keyboard, which shatters and the keys spell out: " YO"!

Get this, John and guys:

WANTED may have been beat to the box office by WALL•E (which I
thought was a masterpiece and my new Pixar fav) but still WANTED
delivers a kick-ass thrill ride and made $50 million this weekend.
Angelina Jolie was so damn HOT and a fine choice working opposite with
James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman, though I don't even know why
there's a thread here dissing the film.
Sure there's a couple throwbacks to "The Matrix" here and there, but I'm
defending the film here for it not to be dissed.

WANTED is a good film.
