Wanted: A Movie Review (Sort of)

 As I said last night (see below post at the very end), Hubs and I ended our Saturday night watching this:

Here is the movie synopsis:

"A young man finds out his long lost father is an assassin. When his father is murdered, the son is recruited into his father's old organization and trained by a man named Sloan to follow in his dad's footsteps.
The anxious, clumsy and abused office clerk Wesley Allan Gibson has a hell and boring routine life: his obese boss humiliates him all the time and his girlfriend betrays him with his colleague and best friend during working period. When he meets the sexy Fox, Wesley is informed that his father was a professional killer that belonged to an ancient organization called Fraternity and killed by the skilled and powerful Cross, a hit-man that has betrayed the Fraternity. Wesley learns that his anxiety actually is a manifestation of his latent abilities and he joins the society under the command of Sloan. Trained by Fox, he changes his personality and attitude, being prepared to face the dangerous Cross and find a hidden secret."
To the hubs and I, it had a "The Matrix" type feel to it.  It started off REALLY bad for me.  In fact, we almost turned it off before finishing it.  While it does get better and has some decent action scenes, overall we did not like it.  The only thing good I can say is that Angelina Jolie plays the perfect bad girl!
So basically what I am trying to say........don't waste your money.  Maybe watch it on TV if there is nothing else on....maybe.  I give it a 2-2.5 out of 5 stars.
Next movie on our agenda......Pride and Glory.  Will keep you posted.
