'Wanted' well worth a look

Lowly accountant Wesley Gibson is trapped in a dead-end job and destined for heartbreak with a girlfriend who is sleeping with his best friend. During a visit to the local pharmacy, Wesley meets sexy stranger Fox.

“Your father died yesterday... he was one of the greatest assassins who ever lived,” she purrs, just before a hired killer attempts to put a bullet through Wesley’s head. The office worker escapes thanks to Fox’s quick reactions, and together they venture to the secret stronghold of the Fraternity — a society of assassins.

In order to fulfil his destiny, Wesley must train under Fox and her associates but all is not what it seems. 'Wanted' doesn’t take itself seriously, blending gratuitous violence, jaw-dropping action sequences and adult humour.
