Wanted

One of my guilty pleasure films is Wanted. Released in 2008, Wanted is the story of a frustrated office worker who learns that he is the son of a professional assassin, and that he shares his father’s superhuman killing abilities. (from IMDB).


It’s pure testosterone-laden fantasy and completely preposterous. It’s virtually impossible to suspend disbelief as we watch our hero (played by James McAvoy) transform into a killing machine and exact his revenge on those who killed his father.


It’s absurd and ridiculous and I loved it – mainly for its final scene. After imposing his vengeance, McAvoy looks directly at the camera and says.


“What have you done with your life lately?”


Well?
