Wanted (2008)

This is a solid movie. In Chicago, Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) is a young submissive man who is working a repetitive dead-end job with a demanding and obese boss. He takes anxiety pills to avoid panic attacks and his girlfriend is cheating on him with his best friend. One night while trying to pick up a new prescription at a pharmacy he is approached by a mysterious woman named Fox (Angelina Jolie) who says that his absent father was recently killed and that he is now in danger. Another man named Cross is nearby and starts a shootout with the woman. Wesley is introduced to a group of assassins who want to train him to enact revenge on his father's killer.

The film is loosely based on a comic book miniseries. Danny Elfman composed the score.
