Red band Wanted!

7 years agoby:

I'm not sure I understand this WANTED hate that seems to be simmering on the web (whereas I sort of understand the anti-HAPPENING backlash). An R-rated comic adaptation with cars, blood, babes, bullets and Morgan Freeman. It may sound like one of JoBlo's tequila-induced dreams, but it's WANTED and it looks pretty enjoyable to me. As evidence I submit Exhibit B, the new red band trailer. I love it for no other reason that you have Morgan Freeman bellowing "Shoot this muthaf*cka!" Bruce Willis could say this line and I don't know that I'd care but coming out of Morgan Freeman it sounds like something I want on a t-shirt.

Because the trailer is red band you'll have to pass our crack security code and prove you're over 18. Also, I recommend that after you check it out below you head to iTunes to download it in super HD. WANTED hits theaters on June 27.

Extra Tidbit: In the comic, Angelina Jolie's character wore ears like a kitten.

Still not convinced

I'll still see it, cause I'm a dirty, nerdy whore like that. However, I've yet to see anything that truly seperates this from all of the other Matrix inspired action garbage we've recieved for the past (what's it been? almost ten years?).

Bekmambetov's (Jesus, had a hard time spelling that name) movies are great eye-candy, but that's all you can really depend on.


James McAvoy and Morgan Freeman rock hard, but I'm still having a hard time biting onto this one.

Haters man. A bunch of "muthafuckin" haters.
This movie is going to be good wether you like it or not.
Ambiguity it is.

Reserving Judgment

I will wait till i see the movie to judge it. I'm writing a action pack flick that will spill into 2 prequel and a comic series and it's very fucken hard. So i have respect for those who write and get their movies made. This WANTED flick, as much as it look generic and redundant, it's better than MAMA MIA and fag movies like that!!

What kills me is the RED BAND Version. whats the difference with other one? it not like they're showing something very adult like. Obviously

I really enjoyed hearing Morgan Freeman say "Shoot this motha' fucka'!" Pretty cool stuff. I'm hoping this movie is good. Looks like it's got a lot of potential.

Want it

That looked pretty awesome, the little touches are cool too, like the ATM saying: Not enough funds, you're an asshole. Correct? Incorrect? Gotta love it.

This movie will be a great action flick and I'm definately gonna catch it in theatres.

don't know what to think yet. i dug bekmambetov's night watch/day watch stuff, but he does have a habit of EXTREMELY over stylizing to the point where you're just watching an object travel through slow motion for ten minute (anyone else remember the shot of the screw falling from the plane in Night watch?)

i'll probaby go just to see if timur can pull off a decent american blockbuster and for angelina jolie because, man, i'm drooling.

Excited

I wasn't excited until I saw this trailer. When they flip the car and shoot him through the sun roof? Awesome!

Has this movie not been released yet? Man, I thought this had come and gone already.

Whatever the case, I agree with smoove, just doesn't grab me... for the same reasons smoove named.

Not into this flick

"I'm not sure I understand this WANTED hate that seems to be simmering on the web"

Well, here's where my dislike is coming from (no disrespect to people looking forward to it). This movie seems like a rated R version of Speed Racer. 2/3s of the scenes in the trailer made me flush with embarrassment (Angelina Jolie's disposition of what happened to his father? Morgan Freeman's threatening exhortation to shoot the wings off of a fly?) Ugh.

If these guys are so unstoppable and powerful,

If these guys are so unstoppable and powerful, there's no suspense. The jack-holes are like Norse Gods - who cares what's going to happen, cause they'll be fine. Ditto for the "masturbatory guitar solo" of overcooked special effects (again, like speed racer).

Where are flicks like Die Hard, where you care whats happening to the people on the screen?
