apparently source material is overrated

The Wanted writers didn't finish reading the comic book series before they wrote their screenplay. Maybe that's why they replaced a league of super-villains with a fraternity of assassins, ditched amorality and anti-heroes for the code, "kill one, save a thousand," cast Angelina Jolie to play a strong, black woman, and practically stripped away the entire premise of the comic book. But if you can ignore those little details, Wanted looks like it could be a pretty entertaining joyride.
