Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bekmambetov's movie evaporates pretty quickly after it's consumed."
‑ Jim Ridley, Village Voice
"A 12-armed heavy-metal drummer of a movie, kicking and flailing through two hours of impossible. The car chase of the year."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"For non-discerning action fans looking to satisfy your adrenaline rush, you can add this film to your most wanted list."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Wanted never takes itself too seriously and is fully aware of its frailties. This is fast and furious popcorn munching fodder, which doesn't waste time dabbling in meaningful theorising or contemplation."
‑ Alex Fletcher, Digital Spy
"kombinacijom strip-akcije i koliko-toliko realnog lika vi%u0161e nego zadovoljava kriterije neobavezne ljetne zabave"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Index.hr
"Wanted is too bloody, too over the top, too silly, and too special effects driven. It's also excessively entertaining and fun."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"I've watched a movie that, while fiercely entertaining, made me fear for the emotional health of my gender. You have a problem with that?"
‑ Christopher Orr, The New Republic
"In normal cinematic terms, it could easily be dismissed as gun porn, boyish nonsense or action overkill. Fact is, in the realms of badass cinema, Wanted is damn near untouchable."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"A movie so shamelessly derivative of so many other movies that it ought to have a work-cited page at the start of the closing credits."
‑ Scott Mendelson, Film Threat
"...an entirely ineffectual actioner that suffers from many of the same problems that one now associates with the genre."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's made for fans of films that really just want to see some great visuals, some amazing sequences and some terrific performances."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"If the graphic-novel-style hyperviolence of Sin City or 300 is your thing, go ahead and knock yourself out. Or let Angelina do it for you ... It feels so much nicer that way."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"The movie never convincingly sells us on its tone, and setting."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Few films have accepted the role of Matrix knockoff with such gusto as Wanted; indeed, at times it's almost impossible to distinguish the two."
‑ Sonny Bunch, Washington Times
"[It] lacks zing, but McAvoy (Atonement) handles his action-hero stint admirably."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
