Wanted on DVD

Wanted on DVD. I used to think that the car flip in James Bond’s “The Man with the Golden Gun” was the best car scene ever (at the 5:15 mark in this clip), but the stunt in the opening chase of this film takes your breath away, even if it was probably computer assisted. The rest of the movie, however, does not reach those same heights. Wesley (James McAvoy) is recruited from his drab life into a fraternity of assassins and trained by Fox (Angelina Jolie) and Sloan (Morgan Freeman) in the hopes that he will eventually be skilled enough to kill a rogue agent. There are plenty of twists along the way and lots of action and other stunts, but the violence is a bit too graphic (according to imdb, the Australian version is “softer” with fewer close ups of the gunshot wounds) and the sound levels are way off with the music too loud and the dialogue too soft. The DVD offers no special features, which was very disappointing as well.
