Angelina Jolie in Wanted (2008)

Despite sharing the same exact title as the gritty graphic novel, this movie doesn’t resemble it at all as they ditched the supervillains in favor of assassins that enjoy curving the bullet so much! The film stars James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Terence Stamp, Thomas Kretschmann, Common, and Angelina Jolie. Its plot revolves around Wesley Gibson (McAvoy), a frustrated account manager who discovers that he is the son of a professional assassin and decides to join the Fraternity, a secret society in which his father worked. While the movie has fun action scenes and it never slows down, the fact that the characters don’t have costumes is kind of disconcerting!
