Movie Review – X-Men Origins: Wolverine – ACTION!

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” tells the story of Wolverine’s epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.

I’ve been looking forwards to this film for quite a while, having been a fan of the X-men series and the last one being in 2006 – X-Men III: The Last Stand.

After seeing it, I wish I’d watched it at the cinema! It’s quite an action flick. It got some bad reviews and the IMDB score is reasonable but I really enjoyed it.

Hugh Jackman is a solid Wolverine, no complaints there and it’s good to see Liev Schreiber, he’s getting some great parts and is an intense actor.

Ryan Reynolds was a good addition too, he’s a smart guy and plays the funny/serious roles well.

Cinematography was superb and it was generally a fast paced film, even with the romantic subplot it played out well. Acting was good all around, nothing to complain about really.

I just need a bigger TV to watch it again in HD glory!

If you haven’t seen it I definitely recommend giving it a watch, it’s a must see for action fans and fans of the X-men franchise.

I give it a razor sharp 8/10.

    Wasn’t super into it, it’s a good action movie and that’s it. But Hugh Jackman’s naked ass did it for me 😀

    Hugh Jackman just suit to be Wolverine. HDTV way too expensive, but I think is worth if we can save the money from going cinema 😀

    Yeah the rating on imdb isn’t the best, but it definitely isn’t bad. 6.8, Respectable. Its definitely worth the watch, and wolverine is definitely the coolest x-men character in my opinion

    The only thing I could not grumble about was acting. I must admit that american actors are really great. Hugh is great Logan, and other also look good (even Will.I.Am is nice). But the whole movie is just so… stupid. I was hoping that they will bring some Weapon X deep story of confessions and pain, but all they did was another “fast camera move” action pulp. I’m sorry but I didn’t expected much from that movie and get even less. It is not a good movie, its just another great idea wasted. Pity.

    Kopertowki: It was no Dark Knight, Star Trek or anything resembling a plot. It was a good mindless action flick tho.
