“Choose your destiny”

Critics have raved about the film “Wanted.” From its cast’s performance to the new directive approach of Russian director Bekmambetov, the film has been declared a nonstop action ride from beginning to end. Is the cast and cinematography successful? Absolutely! They are both spectacular. Does the film give the audience an action-packed ride? Yes, but sadly it’s a very bloody and profane one at that.

The movie begins by stating that a thousand years ago a group of weavers created the Fraternity. The purpose of the Fraternity was to restore order to the world from all the chaos. The Loom of Fate would send a code on some yarn of who was to die. Once decoded, it was up to one of the Fraternity assassins to carry out the murder.

We are then introduced to poor Wesley Gibson (a magnificent James McAvoy) who knows he is a loser. He works a mind-numbing cubicle job as an accountant. Adding to his misery is his lack of a backbone. He silently takes insults from his overly obese boss and even avoids confronting his so-called best friend who is having a illicit affair with his live-in girlfriend. Too wimpy to defend himself, Wesley, instead, constantly takes anti-anxiety pills. To confirm his bleak, unknown existence, Wesley even goggles himself and unsurprisingly finds ‘0 results’. He continues with his unimportant life until Fox (Angelina Jolie) saunters into his life.

After nearly getting killed by gunfire and a car chase, a bewildered Wesley is told that the father who had abandoned him as a baby was one of the greatest assassins who had ever lived. The Fraternity leader, Sloan (an accurate Morgan Freeman), tells Wesley he does not suffer from anxiety but from supernatural powers. Once he learns to control his powers, it will be Wesley’s job to seek his father’s revenge by killing Cross, the assassin who murdered his father. While Wesley gruelingly endures the Fraternity’s painful training sessions, he finds a new sense of purpose and strength in his life. Confronting all who wronged him, Wesley believes he has found a new home within the Fraternity, but the assassins keep their true motives secretive.

Part of the film’s strength comes from the stunning visual effects. I was reminded of the “The Matrix” trilogy. In slow motion, bullets are shown to bend, move in different directions, and clash together.

Although “Wanted” is his debut Hollywood film, I am sure we will be seeing a lot more films from director Timur Bekmambetov. While the majority of the film is loud, violent scenes, the actors are what really qualifies this film as above average. Having enjoyed McAvoy’s intense performance in “Atonement,” I was amazed at his wide-range acting ability in this film. His American accent is perfect, and his voiced narrations contribute to the believability of his character’s lame existence. His transition from an unknown loser into a confident killer is never doubted. Angelina Jolie almost has a replication of her role as an assassin, as she did in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”

Offensive Content

Having said that Jolie again has a role as an assassin, the similarities between the two films almost end there. The violence in “Wanted” is off the charts in comparison with “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” This is one of the most violent films I have seen in a good while. From beginning to end, the movie has a lot of blood and killings. The stunning visual effects and camera angles would make the killings more ‘appealing.’ Blood is still blood, nonetheless. This movie is absolutely not appropriate for children of any age. There are several bullet shots entering heads. The slow-action sequences show the exit wounds and spewing blood. During his initiation into the Fraternity, Wesley repeatedly gets punched, kicked, and stabbed. His face, too, is a bloody mess. Heads and faces are shown blowing off. After shooting a hole in a man’s face, Wesley carries the man’s body with his gun as he continues to fire. Wesley avenges himself for his betraying, best friend by slamming his face with a keyboard.

While the previews show a kiss scene between Fox and Wesley, there is never a romance between the two assassins. The kiss is merely to make Wesley’s ex-girlfriend jealous. The kiss is not offensive when compared to the other sexual material in the film. In one scene, Angelina Jolie shows her derriere while emerging nude from a bathtub. There are also two loud, graphic sex scenes between Wesley’s girlfriend and his best friend.

The profanity is also heavy in the film. I counted about 70 uses of profanities. However, I do not doubt that there is more. I sometimes lost count as the characters would mouth them almost absentmindedly. The “f” word is used in almost every other line.

This movie is anti-God. Fate is the god of this fictional world. Whoever fate decides to kill, the assassins are expected to never question, but to deliver the murder. When Wesley gets his first killing assignment from the Loom of Fates, he does not go through with the murder. He naturally questions the assignment, stating that he does not know his target. Is the man evil? What wrong has he done? Fox condemns this questioning, and Wesley eventually carries out the first of many murders. In short, to be a member of the Fraternity, one has to have complete, blind faith that the code is being decoded accurately.

The wonderful God of the Bible does not require complete, blind faith. He tells his children to “test” everything. In Romans 1:20, Paul wrote:

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

This movie encourages its assassins to come to terms with the murderer inside them. Sloan explains to Wesley that he needs to embrace destiny and come to learn “the killer” that is flowing through his veins. By accepting his purpose, Wesley will help fate restore order to the chaotic world. With this false sense of hope, Wesley flourishes. There are countless people in the world who desperately want some kind of mission. The eternal mission of being a follower of Jesus Christ is the only life-saving one. He will be the only one who can and will truly restore peace to the Earth. God only wants the best for His children. And since God cannot lie, I completely believe Him when in Jeremiah 29:11, the Lord said,

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord ‘plans to prosper you, plans to give you a hope and a future’.”

This film plays a deceptive game. It uses visual effects to create the illusion of a fun movie, while countless people are murdered onscreen. I even found myself enjoying the film at times. Are cool graphics ever worth insulting the Holy Spirit? It should never be.

There was much hype over Jolie’s partial nude scene. It is sad how completely irrelevant this scene is to the plot, only adding a lust factor. How many men will be tempted by this, get caught by the bait, and fall into Hollywood’s trap to get their money? I do not recommend this film.

Positive—First off: If “strong bloody violence throughout” and “pervasive language” bother you, don't even finish reading this review. This is not the movie for you. This movie is very violent, though most of it is stylized, and the language is frequent and strong, though the uses of the Lord's name in vain are not frequent. There is some sexuality in the film, and it is at an R-rated level, but if you have a huge problem with the sexuality alone and not the violence, then you seriously need to reconsider the way you view life. I'm not saying the sexuality is nothing to be concerned about—I'm just saying that, if you can handle all the violence, then you can handle the sexuality.

This film, as a film, is great. Fully unrealistic, but totally cool. And the acting is REALLY good. We all know it was criminal that James McAvoy didn't get a nomination for “Atonement” last year, and we all know that Angelina Jolie has been stunning ever since her Oscar-winning turn in “Girl, Interrupted.” And once again they make a great pair, accompanied by Morgan Freeman (though if you're looking for a role similar to his two rounds as God, you'll be sadly disappointed) and some other lesser known but adept actors. Great action, great special effects, many twists that you don't foresee, but that make sense.

The morals… are… ambiguous. Is it right to follow “fate,” and do whatever you're told, however wrong it may seem, or should you take control of your own destiny and risk messing things up even more? The obvious Christian answer is: “Neither, silly! Trust God instead.” Well, yes… but God doesn't expect us to be blobs, waiting for Him to come down and say: “Okay now, don't shoot that man. But you can shoot that other over there, because it's for My glory.”

He actually wants us to use our brains, and sometimes these difficult moral choices are our trials. And those trials ultimately make us stronger. Wesley Gibson, the main character in the movie, definitely finds a new strength through his trials.

Look, let's end it here: Don't bring your kids into this film, unless they are MATURE teens. If you are not used to movies with startling content in them, think long and hard before you walk in yourself. If you are easily offended, don't walk in at all. But if you are a true cinephile (who is willing to watch just about any good film, even beyond the R-rating), you will have a good chance of enjoying this film. Just don't be too literal-minded, or you'll be in for a world of troubled confusion.

P.S. If you do bring in your MATURE teens, go over the morals with them afterwards. Have an open-ended discussion, and PLEASE let them contribute their own ideas. You don't know how much I wish my parents did that with me instead of trying to shield me from everything.

Positive—Why do so many people come to see a summer action blockbuster ('Rated R for strong bloody violence throughout') based on a comic book about a fraternity of assassins and are disappointed when on-screen killing is not presented “inoffensively?” Violence is violence. If violence in the media offends us as Christians, it should be all violence in principle and not be dependent on the particulars of its presentation. But for Christians who don't have problems separating reality from fiction, there is a very clever statement about faith and religion to be found in this movie.

Sloan, the leader of the assassins, presents the “Loom of Fate” as essentially the Will of God. He claims the position of sole interpreter of that will. Unique among most contemporary films, the source of divine authority in “Wanted” is not prevented as false or a fabrication. Contrarily, it is the exploitation of this divine authority carried out by unquestioning believers that brings pain and destruction to its followers. Ultimately the message carried by the film is that divine authority is truth, but we should be weary of those who tell us to follow their interpretation of such without question.

Positive—When are people gonna learn? If a movie is rated “R” read what's in it or even PG-13 then decide. If it says language, violence, sexuality then guess what? ITS IN THE MOVIE! Seriously I find it rather annoying that Christian people whine about morals in Hollywood but go see the movie in the first place! What did you expect? Hollywood is a moraless place has been and always will be; remember that before you go watch any movie.

Brian, age 31
Neutral—My friend and I were pretty excited for some time to see this movie. The sweet action scenes, the cars, the guns, etc. And I feel that I must give the movie its props for such things. The cool scenes that I expected were there for sure.

However, it's what else was there that got to me. I admit that I didn't pay attention to the rating as much as I should have. I knew that it was rated “R” but was blindsided nevertheless. The cussing was absolutely overwhelming. I've seen some really vulgar movies, but this one stood out for sure. While the cussing was all throughout the movie in high quantities, there were several scenes where the writers seemed to put them in for the sake of putting them in.

Another aspect of the film that caught me off guard was the sex. Two involved sex scenes were placed in the movie, and as per usual, completely unnecessary.

I feel that I must also warn that there is excessive violence. Although I am (sadly) not phased too much by lots of violence, this is definitely one of the more violent movies I have seen (and I've seen lots…).

Bottom line: if you're a parent, I would not advise anyone below 17 or 18 to watch this. If you're a teen like me, think seriously as to if you need to see it. This does nothing for the spirit and isn't exceptionally quotable or anything fun like that. It's entertaining for the time you're in there, and that's about it.

As a Christian, this movie is offensive because of the sex and the language especially. It's not a wholesome, spirit-filling movie. It's not spirit-neutral… it's a spirit-damaging movie for those reasons.

**This movie is definitely rated “R” for a reason.

Austin, age 19
Neutral—This was kind of a cool movie, as far as the action goes. Yes, very graphic and violent, but no worse than “Gladiator” or “Braveheart.” The language is horrible, every other word is the “F” word. There are 2 nasty quick sex scenes in the beginning, I don't believe any nudity is shown, but still very graphic. They do show unnecessary backside, which must be considered “sensual” by the rating committee and not nudity.

Overall, there were some things that were cool in the movie, the action and some of the car chases and effects. However, NO redeeming quality at all, no good guy wins, just life sucks and you die.

Kids under 17 should ABSOLUTELY NOT watch this movie, and if you have a weak stomach for language and violence just stay away.

Anthony, age 33
Neutral—I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was extremely entertaining, had a great cast, cool special effects/camera work. The action was exciting and really fun to watch. I was super surprised at how well James McAvoy pulled off this character! My friend and I were also surprised at how much we (along with everyone else in the theater) laughed during this film! We did not expect the humor.

That being said, there was a LOT of offensive material in this film. There is strong language throughout the entire movie (I don't know if there was a scene without it), a few sex scenes, and of course an abundance of violence! I was appalled at the amount of young people in the theater (doesn't anyone ID kids anymore?!) and definitely DO NOT recommend this film for anyone under the age of 18.

Negative—My family and I went to see the film together and all I can say is that I should have read the reviews more carefully. We lasted only ½ hour and walked out to see the “Incredible Hulk” after complaining to the management. The sex scenes at the beginning were totally offensive as well as the offensive language. I stomached as much as I could, but enough is enough. We were not even able to stick around long enough to see Jolie or Freeman. I don't know what the critics raved about. Obviously there are no morals in Hollywood. I enjoy great active movies and this one did remind me of the Matrix. The two sexual encounters were embarrassing to watch with my family even though my children are 18, 21, and 23. I do not recommend this movie until they dub the language and remove the sex scenes. The Hulk was great in comparison.

Negative—I'll admit when I first watched this movie, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The action scenes were awesome and like the reviewer said here the actors were AWESOME in this movie. However, when I came to this Web site to see what the Web site's opinion, I felt really condemned by God. She was right in how fun-looking movies are never worth insulting God's spirit that lives inside of us Christians. There is no excuse for enjoying violence on the big screen, even if it is just a “little.” Sin is still sin. I thank the reviewer, and this Web site for posting up Christian-based reviews.

NegativeJames McAvoy (Mr. Tumnus) stars as a Wesley Gibson, a white-collar pushover with the Peter Gibson dilemma and a plethora of anxiety attacks waiting to erupt. In a chance encounter, he meets The Fraternity, a clandestine organization of assassins. Within 6 weeks of their tutelage, Tumnus is transformed from a zero of the likes of Kip Dynamite to a gun-toting, arm-swinging, bad-you-know-what that makes James Bond, John McClane, Neo, Rambo, Conan, Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Harrison Ford look like chumps.


This movie is way to frantic for its own good. Random as well. Weird too. Movies that intentionally try to be weird are just plain weird. I haven't the foggiest idea what the filmmakers were going for in pre-production, but rest assured, their end product blows chunks. When you add superfluous details nonstop and stoop to comic-book mystery, you fail. Where do the assassins get their hit list from? A Loom. Not just any loom. But a big one.

Big unSmooth.

Negative—We are movie fanatics and love action movies such as “The Matrix” and “The Bourne Identity” series. The advertisement for this movie made it look very appealing. However, after the first half hour of the F-word and other crude language being used in every sentence by everyone and full on sex scenes with no warning to have my teens look the other way; I was left thinking… what have I done! We watched the rest of the movie cringing but hoping it would get on with the special effects and plot to materialize as advertised. At the end of the movie I was sorry we didn't leave after the first 5 min. to get our $ back. We were left wondering if Morgan Freeman had read the script before signing on with this crude and corrupt movie. Not so surprised with Angelina Jolie. I imagine some people will be shocked with the blood and violence but believe me that's not as shocking as the explicit language and sexual content. Buyer Beware!

Negative—Wow, and we are surprised as a society when people shoot up colleges, school and other public places. The special effects are too far fetched the violence and language is beyond excessive. This movie just gives extremely unstable/frustrated people too much violent information. The only thing good about this movie was the plot twist which was refreshing to see some forethought for a movie with so much excessive violence and language I think they used f**k more than a dozen times. Save your money and don't let this kind of violence take up space in your head. They could have had a better message for the audience rather than the unfortunate message of hey unhappy miserable person with a bad social/work life pick up a gun and change your life.

My daughter's 12 or 13 year old friend came out of the theater with her parents and so I thought… ok… maybe it isn't too bad, maybe just some swearing. Oh, I felt so bad for that girl that had to see all the graphic sexual and very bloody violent cr*p!

Sha, age 35
Negative—This movie was like watching a very bad video game for an hour-and-a-half! There were numerous uses of the “F” word along with all the other profanity used throughout. There were also at least two very graphic and inappropriate forms of sex shown. The plot was very weak and there was virtually no moral value to this film whatsoever. We thought we were going to watch an action-packed thriller and came out severely disappointed in this film. I would not recommend this film to anyone sensitive to violence or profanity as it made me feel very uncomfortable, and I wish we had researched it further before deciding to go see it.

Jaime Decarlo, age 32
Negative—I enjoy a good action movie now and then, and based on the trailers assumed it it would be somewhat ok. What followed was indeed action-packed, but for the most part objectionable to say the least. My opinion is the film would have been just as engaging without the “best friend” and girlfriend scenes, and all of the over-the-top language. The violence was comparable to “Shoot 'Em Up,” which I regret seeing, as well. As mentioned in other reviews the effects were unique and at times comparable to what “The Matrix” had done, and of course very Hollywood. The good thing is that I saw it alone and would have been somewhat ashamed to have seen it with fellow Christians. After this experience, I am going to make more of an effort to stay away from R rated movies and just stick with fun easy going movies like “Wall-e,” which I do recommend.

Douglas Smith, age 42
Negative—I used to see this kind of movie, and I would justify the sex, and foul language away full knowing that it was wrong, but also realizing that nothing bad was happening to me after words; in fact, it was a thrill to watch these R rated and PG 13 movies with all the sexual stuff.

However, if I would have known then what I know now, that God is watching and he does care about what you do because he loves you. I came down with a disease of the brain called Bipolar Type 1 with psychotic features, that was probably what the secular psychologists call a genetic reality brought out by stress of what I call sin. Anyway, the fact is that God is watching and he is slow to anger, but not soft on anger, when he strikes he can strike severely, and it is my prayer that he strikes hard enough to get people's attention in this life so that they may repent and have a chance at the next life.

Negative—This film is not worth a review; it is pure violent, murderous mayhem and feeds the lust from within our sinful selves. I won't bother arguing with those who feel there are redeeming snippets in it. If the most terrible scenes were edited in an attempt to make this clean enough for a PG movie, it would be very short and make no sense. I am worried that such graphic, bloody violence now passes for an R, I am worried that Christians can argue that this level of degradation is OK because it's only a fantasy film, I am worried because their children will lower the bar another rung when they grow up because their parents weren't bold enough to say it does not edify the soul. Consider Phillipians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Negative—My wife and I decided on a whim to see this movie, disregarding some of the negative reviews we had heard. It turns out the consequence of our uncharacteristic spontaneity was a loss of $15 and two hours of our lives. The story was intriguing, but the acting and writing left a lot to be desired. We weren't surprised by the use of the F-word, but the majority of the times it was used in the film seemed forced to say the least (especially from Morgan Freeman and James McAvoy, two actors we tend to respect), and it just seemed unnatural. The violence was about what one might expect from a movie about assassins, but there's really not a lot of redeeming material to be seen here. Not even worth a rental, which was what our original plan was.

Positive—To start with I want to say that this film is definitely not something to go to if your offended by strong violence or lots of language. There was also some sex which was totally irrelevant to the story. I think the film makers were just trying to demonstrate the kind of relationship they had, however, they could've done it in a more creative non-offensive manner. If you can get passed all of that you will not be disappointed. The movie itself is definitely what it made itself out to be in the previews. I would only recommend taking a teen if they are mature and not very easily influenced.

Comments from non-viewers
I often go on this site before watching a movie, and, for the most part, my husband and I don't watch many movies anymore (this is mostly based on the main reviewers comments). I have to say that there isn't an ounce of regret in having made that decision. It has helped us realize how much time we have wasted watching movies and the conviction afterwards, it just isn't worth it. Having just read over this review I still have a hard time understanding why as Christians we are still watching R rated movies knowing full well what is in them before hand. If the world is warning us about the “world” then what excuse will we have before God who has also warned us.

I feel sad when I read a young persons comment about 'if you can handle the violence then you can handle the sexuality/nudity'. I couldn't disagree more. Not that I don't find the violence disturbing, but at least we know we didn't just really see someone murdered in front of our eyes. However, when we see sexuality/nudity that is in fact what we are seeing not to mention that whoever it is that is naked is a creation of God, designed for more than just being a sexual object and when we support such things then not only do we exploit that person and open up all sorts of doors to be tempted, we also tell the movie maker that that is what the public wants. Therefore, we are just as responsible for “supply and demand” as everyone else.

I would like to challenge anyone reading this to spend 2 hours reading your Bible and spending time with God rather then watching a movie this week and see if God doesn't do something in your heart that will draw you closer to Him and farther away from this world. He loves us too much to leave us the way we are. God's plan for each of us is more than we can hope or imagine.
