Goofs

When Wesley types in his name in the search engine, www.google.com, he enters it without quotations, and gets no results. However, in order to get no results for a name, you would have to put the name in quotations, like "Wesley Gibson" - assuming there is someone by that name. If you only enter the name without quotations, like in the film, the search query will yield any results for Wesley, and any results for Gibson, (Wesley + Gibson as opposed to "Wesley Gibson") making it factually impossible for a search engine to yield zero results.

Best action movie I've seen in a long time
7 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

As action movies go, they don't get much better then this.

The action scenes were amazing... I was sitting on the edge of my seat on more than one sequence. Of course some of it's a bit far fetched but come on... Aren't MOST action movies? James MacAvoy did an amazing job playing the average joe who is suddenly told he has the ability in him to be a "wolf among the sheep" I enjoyed his American accent. Angelina was great. She does very well in roles like this and even though she doesn't have too many lines she pulls off her character who TRULY believes in what she does very well. Plus, she's hot. I mean, I'm a woman who doesn't particularly even like tattoos and I have a crush on her.. ;-) In all I highly recommend this movie. Great summer entertainment!
