Wanted, the movie


This movie got a pretty good score on Metacritic, but I think it was one of those situations where I was fooled.

The movie was extremely dumb and lost me in the first 5 minutes when it started to describe the basic idea: a group of weavers from “around a thousand years ago” learned that they could alter the fate of the world by kill certain people.  And how did they know who to kills?  Their looms would mysteriously send them binary code which would spell out the target’s name.

Some of the reviews of the movie basically stress that watching the effects and Angelina Jolie was worth the price of admission.  For me the plot was so dumb it was hard to get that out of my mind enough to enjoy seeing all of Angelina’s tatoos.
