WantedDVD - 2008
Wes is 25 years old and is a disaffected, clock-punching drone. His boss chews him out hourly, his girlfriend ignores him routinely, and his life plods on in interminable boredom and routine. Everyone knows Wes will amount to nothing - that is until he meets the sexy woman named Fox, and then everything changes. Wes' estranged father is murdered, and the deadly Fox recruits him into The Fraternity, a secret society that trains him to avenge his father's death, by unlocking his dormant powers. Fox teaches Wes how to develop his lightning-quick reflexes and phenomenal agility. He discovers that The Fraternity lives by an ancient, unbreakable code: to carry out the death orders given by emotionless Fate itself.
From the critics
Violence: Lots of people get killed, most of it is senseless "murder for the sake of murder" stuff.

SummaryAdd a Summary
A frustrated office worker learns that he is the son of a professional assassin, and that he shares his father's superhuman killing abilities.
In this movie the main character goes from a ho hum life to one that is thrilling and full of danger.
Unrealistically he becomes someone his father was while he finds out just who he is.
Moving from an office worker to a natural born killer, James McAvoy is put through the paces that Anjelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman exact on him.
Excellent performances by all with special effects that are top rated.
A must see for the "Matrix" style FX alone.
17+ should be the age group due to graphic violence
