L. and I went to see Wanted today. We both enjoyed it, though I could have done without the rats. It definitely had a comic book feel to it. Angelina Jolie is badass and James McAvoy is adorable. I wish he’d get to use his real accent more often. I am not sure the movie made much sense, but if you like a big shoot ’em up that owes a large debt to The Matrix, you’ll probably enjoy it.

I am not sure I’m not overthinking, but I thought it was kind of a commentary on how dangerous escapism can be. spoilers
