Most Wanted - Movie Synopsis & Plot
KEENEN IVORY WAYANS is caught in a deadly conspiracy of deceit and revenge in New Line Cinema's action-thriller Most Wanted.
In the film, Wayans stars as Sgt. James Dunn, a decorated Gulf War hero and highly trained sharpshooter who is convicted of killing a superior officer. Sentenced to die in a military prison, he is visited by Lt. Col. Grant Casey (JON VOIGHT), leader of an elite, ultra-covert assassination squad code-named the "Black Sheep."
Casey offers Dunn a chance to escape from prison. All he has to do is agree to one assignment-help assassinate a reclusive industrialist (ROBERT CULP),who is selling deadly biotechnology on the black market. With no other hope of gaining his freedom, Dunn joins the unorthodox brigade.
On the day of the assassination the hit goes terribly wrong. The First Lady, who is attending the dedication of a medical building with the industrialist, is killed-and Dunn discovers that he has been set up as the triggerman.
Pursued by corrupt Army superiors and members of virtually every police and government agency imaginable, Dunn is forced to rely on his survival skills and military training to elude the massive manhunt tracking him through the streets of Los Angeles.
To clear his name and expose the real killers, Dunn kidnaps Dr. Victoria Constantini (JILL HENNESSY), an eyewitness with a videotape of the assassination. But with the evidence he needs and a less-than-cooperative hostage complicating his life, he still must overcome his most dangerous obstacle-a $10 million bounty that has been placed on his head.
