A BORED 25-year-old office worker called Wes (James McAvoy) lives a dull life of repetition and laziness.
But little does this doormat of a man know that he is about to become a hero of the masses - Wesley Gibson - a man so hot you could sizzle sausages on his back.
Just when Wes's life reaches a low of juggling an angry girlfriend with an angry boss, his estranged father is murdered.
Cue a life altering rendezvous with a sassy lady called Fox (Angelina Jolie).
Fox ushers Wes into an underworld of mystery, intrigue, and cool stunts likely to be blamed for various copycat attempts soon to appear on YouTube.
By recruiting him into the Fraternity, a secret society, deadly and sexy Fox teaches Wes to develop hidden powers so he can avenge his father's death.
Under the tuition of Fraternity mentors, including Sloan (Morgan Freeman), the former loser develops Spiderman-like agility and reflexes.
Soon, the newborn hero must choose between following the shady path of the Fraternity, and controlling his own destiny - which he probably should have done in the first place.
