Movie Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine  

Posted by: ~ames~ in , , ,

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch,

I'm a big Hugh Jackman fan and I've always loved the X-Men movies. So I've been anxious to see this movie ever since I heard it was being made.

From the very first X-Men movie, Logan, aka Wolverine, has had a mysterious past. We found out where the adamantine was added to his skeleton but we didn't know what led him to having that surgery. Those questions are answered in Origins. Logan was born in the 1800s and orphaned at a young age, along with his older brother Victor. The opening sequence of the movie takes us through quite a few wars (Civil, WWI, WWII and the Vietnam war) and Logan is fed up with the fighting. So he decides to settle down but his past comes back to haunt him and the woman he loves is killed. Off he goes to get vengeance and the person he is looking for is none other than his brother Victor.

What did I think? I loved it. Hugh Jackman anyone? LOL It's a good action-y movie that doesn't take itself seriously. Wolverine has a dark humour that I've enjoyed in all the movies. It was interesting to see about his past and there were some new characters - Gambit (Taylor Kitsch - yum!) really stands out for me.

So if you're a fan of the X-Men franchise, don't miss this. If you're not a fan of mutants, action sequences, claws, motorcycles, hot guys, etc. you can wait for the DVD. LOL
