And with the high octane movie is nearing its theatrical debut on Friday, June 27, it seems that many have applauded the studio's effort.

Pretty bold in exposing the bloody and adrenaline pumping sequences, the movie starring James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie has been hailed by most of the critics to be an action movie moviegoers haven't seen before. In fact, Rotten Tomatoes has rated it to be 83% fresh with only 4 out of 23 movie critics giving it harsh reviews. Praising "Wanted", Joshua Tyler of CinemaBlend.com commented, "The action genre hasn't felt this fresh and alive since 1999 and the Wachowskis." On the same tone, Peter Canavese of Groucho Reviews stated that it "delivers slam-bang action entertainment" with a surprising twist at the end.
