    Ridiculously bad animation distracts from story

    Marvel takes the story of the origin of Wolverine and renders it almost unwatchable. The crude style of animation turns every serious moment for the characters into a joke. The animation is so distractingly bad, I'm not sure if the acting is really as horrible as it seems or just hopelessly undermined by the sub-South Park, sub-Superfriends animation. Animation this primitive might work with the crudely drawn figures and environments in South Park, but carefully detailed character drawings simply do not go with an immobile face and a flapping jaw that bounces around with a life of its own. They would've been better off telling this story with sock puppets.

    The latest addition to Marvel Knights Motion Comics animation is a worthy add on to the series and timed perfectly to the release of the new Wolverine film.Good animation and voice work makes for a enjoyable look at Wolverine's origin from the acclaimed comic book miniseries.
