Wanted ( Angelina Jolie )


The film opens with a mysterious man, identified as "Mr. X", under attack from a half a dozen hitmen from the top of the building across the street from the skyscraper he is currently standing in. He focuses intently, runs at supernatural speed down a hallway, and soars through a window and across the divide between the buildings, gunning down all but one of the killers in the process, one of whom is hiding behind a structural pillar. Mr. X eliminates him by performing a physics-defying shot, causing the bullet to curve around the corner. After killing the last would-be assassin, Mr. X answers the ringing cell phone of one of the hitmen and chides their client for "sending sheep to kill a wolf." The man on the other end of the phone casually states the hitmen Mr. X has just slain were simply decoys, intended to maneuver/place him in the exact spot he currently stands. Mr. X is then executed by a clean shot from behind emerging from his forehead; the scene is played backwards and the unusual bullet is followed to its point of origin, several miles away, where the sound of the assassin's shot is drowned out by a passing train.

We are then introduced to a young man named Wesley Gibson, who works at a dead-end desk job with an overbearing boss, takes anti-anxiety medication for panic attacks, and has a live-in girlfriend who cheats on him with his best friend. During one of his trips to the pharmacy, Gibson is told by a mysterious woman named Fox that his father (implied to be Mr. X) was an international assassin who was murdered yesterday, and the killer, a man known as Cross, is standing directly behind Wesley. Cross and Fox engage in a shoot-out followed by a car chase in the streets of Chicago. Fox brings Gibson to the headquarters of the Fraternity, a thousand-year-old secret society of assassins. The group's leader, Sloan, explains that Gibson's panic attacks are actually the untrained expression of a rare, unexplained superhuman ability; when stressed he has drastically increased heart rate and adrenaline levels that result in bursts of superhuman strength, speed and reflexes. The Fraternity can teach him to control this ability, so Gibson can follow in his father's footsteps as an assassin, beginning by inheriting his fortune. Gibson is initially reluctant and returns to work, only to finally snap when discovering his online bank account balance is over 3 million dollars. He tells off his boss in front of the entire office and on his way out, hits his "friend" in the face with a keyboard. Fox is waiting outside to take him back to the Fraternity headquarters - an unassuming textile mill.

Gibson is then subjected to brutal training; among other forms of combat, he learns to curve bullets fired from smoothbore firearms around objects. Afterward, Gibson is shown the "Loom of Fate", a loom that mysteriously dispenses the names of the Fraternity's targets through binary code hidden in weaving errors of the fabric. Those the loom identifies are apparently destined to cause tragedy in the future; Sloan's singular task within the Fraternity is to find and interpret the targets selected by Fate. Gibson is initially reluctant about killing people he doesn't know on the word of a loom. Then Fox reveals that in her childhood, a hired killer burned her father alive in front of her — and said hitman's name was dispensed by the Loom, only to have the assassin assigned to the target balk at the last second. She considers that preventing such tragedy is now her mission. "Kill one person, potentially save a thousand."
