Plot Summary: Wesley (McAvoy) is a normal guy who leads a boring and repetitive life. That is until he’s recruited into a league of assassins.

Review: I think it’s safe to describe this movie in two words: BAD ASS! By far one of the more enjoyable movies out at the moment. I know it’s not for everyone because almost all of the action sequences are just so over the top and unrealistic, but that’s what makes this so awesome. While I love a simple action movie or even a good kung-fu flick, these movies are making their way up there in my book. There’s no way to can see this movie and be bored. Now, let’s mention the cast. James McAvoy does both parts of his life very well. He makes a great nobody whose annoyed with his job/life/everything, but he also turns into a real bad ass. Angelina Jolie is, well she’s Angelina Jolie… And Morgan Freeman is a mysterious assassin leader. How awesome is that? Now a movie isn’t a good movie without a story, but this one has that too. There are some genius twists throughout the movie and it’s not at all what I was expecting to happen.

All around, this is definitely in my top three movies of the summer (so far) and I’m definitely glad I got around to seeing it. If you’re a fan of action movies by any aspect, go see this movie. You will leave with that feeling like “Wow, I really want to be an assassin right now.” and you just want to start kicking peoples’ asses. It’s great.

Rating: 4.75/5
