Wanted tells the tale of one apathetic nobody's transformation
into an unparalleled enforcer of justice. In 2008, the world will be
introduced to a hero for a new generation: Wesley Gibson.
25-year-old Wes (James McAvoy) was the most disaffected, cube-dwelling
drone the planet had ever known. His boss chewed him out hourly, his
girlfriend ignored him routinely and his life plodded on interminably.
Everyone was certain this disengaged slacker would amount to nothing.
There was little else for Wes to do but wile away the days and die in his
slow, clock-punching rut.
Until he met a woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie).
After his estranged father is murdered, the deadly sexy Fox recruits Wes
into the Fraternity, a secret society that trains Wes to avenge his dad's
death by unlocking his dormant powers. As she teaches him how to develop
lightning-quick reflexes and phenomenal agility, Wes discovers this team
lives by an ancient, unbreakable code: carry out the death orders given by
With wickedly brilliant tutors
— including the
Fraternity's enigmatic leader, Sloan (Morgan Freeman)
— Wes grows to
enjoy all the strength he ever wanted. But, slowly, he begins to realize
there is more to his dangerous associates than meets the eye. And as he
wavers between newfound heroism and vengeance, Wes will come to learn what
no one could ever teach him: he alone controls his destiny.
