The movie “Wanted” is based upon Mark Millar’s explosive graphic novel series and helmed by the stunning visualist director Timur Bekmambetov.
“Wanted” tells the story of one invisible drone’s transformation into a dark avenger.
In “Wanted,” 25-year-old account manager Wesley Gibson () was the most pathetic, cube-dwelling hypochondriac the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his girlfriend cheated on him daily and his life plodded on interminably. Everyone was certain this weakling would never amount to anything. There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die a slow, clock-punching death. Until he became “Wanted.” And meets Fox (, the costar of “Wanted.”)
After the murder of a father he never knew, Wes discovers powers beyond his dreams. He becomes the latest recruit in the Fraternity–a secret society of assassins–and develops lightning-quick reflexes with superhuman agility. Wes soon learns his league of henchmen has but one mission: carry out the death orders of the mythological Fates, weavers of every man’s lifeline.
With wickedly brilliant tutors, he morphs into a killing machine and starts erasing one bad guy after another. But as Wes grows into the mantle passed down by his father…he discovers his clan members are not exactly the enforcers of justice they claim to be. Just as he gets everything he ever “Wanted,” Wesley Gibson will learn that with the ability to deliver death comes an even more difficult power…controlling your own life.
