Wanted Review


Very Good
A scrawny, self-loathing office drone gets plucked from his humdrum existence by a steely, gun-wielding super babe, is mentored by a Zen warrior with limitless intelligence but limited patience, then endures harsh physical training to prepare for a deadly mission only he can complete.

What sounds an awful lot like The Matrix is actually Wanted, an adaptation of Mark Millar's 2004 comic book miniseries by style-conscious Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov.

Witchblade Review


Bad
In the grand tradition of fabulous movies like The Relic and Wishmaster comes another movie about museum-ware gone wrong. Yancy Butler stars as a cop who encounters the Witchblade during a museum shootout, finding the strange bracelet/gauntlet/sword permanently welded to her forearm. The rest of the movie is a dichotomy: a bad comic book sci-fi/fantasy about the Witchblade's mysterious powers mixed in with an atrocious cop thriller involving a dead friend, a dead father, and a dead partner! Can this girl's luck get any worse? Throw in some low-grade Matrix-wannabe special effects and I likely need only say "Based on the comic book..." to make you run away from this movie, screaming.
