Review Revue: Can WALL-E Eclipse Iron Man AND Take On Angelina Jolie?

Pixar's lovable robot attempts to dodge Wanted's bending bullets.

by | June 27, 2008 | Comments

Two Fresh picks await you this weekend: Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy‘s bullet-bending assassin thriller Wanted, and Pixar’s latest classic-in-the-making, WALL-E, which may eclipse Iron Man as the best-reviewed movie of the year so far. But what are the critics saying? Watch the Review Revue to find out!

We’re lucky to have not one, but two well-received films opening this weekend: a tender story of robot love (Pixar’s WALL-E), and a tender story of super-powered assassins (Wanted, from the director of Russia’s sci-fi phenomenon, Night Watch). But can a pint-sized robot put the smackdown on killers who bend bullets (and look like Angelina Jolie)?

Watch this week’s Review Revue below, and tell us which opening flick you’ll be seeing this weekend: Wanted or WALL-E?

Also, see where Wanted femme fatale Angelina Jolie measures up in our list of the 25 Best Action Heroines of All Time. (Hint: tough gals Pam Grier, Sigourney Weaver, and Cynthia Rothrock also made the cut.) Who’s the baddest chick of them all?

And check back next week as we discuss the finer points of alcoholism and superheroes (Will Smith’s Hancock), and ponder what Dakota Fanning thinks of the new Dakota Fanning, Abigail Breslin (Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Movie).
