“Wanted” is badass but shallow. It’s more cynical (cynical means assuming people and their motives are base, rather than noble) than “Fight Club”. It’s not as funny or as ultimately inspiring as “Office Space”. And it’s more misogynistic and unreal (bending bullets?) than “The Matrix”.

I enjoyed the spectacle but I didn’t like where it was going.

Thanks to Pajiba’s review for the comparison of “Wanted” to those three movies. Hard to believe they all came out in 1999, isn’t it?
