Wanted

I didn't think I was going to like Wanted -- I had thought director Bekmambetov's Night Watch was such a hot mess, I can't stand Mark Millar's writing and, besides, they didn't actually stick with the plot of the original comic, so who knows what kind of mess they might have come up with.

But what I think they've come up with is a pretty kick-ass action movie that extracts the best parts of Millar's story. And, I have to confess, I was pretty taken with how well it uses Chicago as a backdrop for the story. Blahblahblah, secret order of assassins. But it actually all sort of held together.
