Synopsis


X-Men Origins: Wolverine
The gruff, adamantium-clawed Marvel superhero Wolverine strikes out on his own in this X-Men spin-off starring series regular Hugh Jackman. The story gets under way as the boy who will become Wolverine makes a shocking discovery about his family bloodline, and gains a brother in the process. Flash forward to find the mutant siblings battling side by side through two world wars and Vietnam -- where they are sentenced to death for killing a commanding officer -- and Logan (Hugh Jackman) and his brother, Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth, played by Liev Schreiber), have joined a top-secret government task force. When their targets begin to include innocent civilians, conscientious Logan escapes to the Canadian Rockies, where he builds a home with pretty schoolteacher Kayla Silverfox (Lynn Collins). Informed by his old commanding officer William Stryker (Danny Huston) that the members of his old team are being targeted for death, Logan is heartbroken when Victor finds and kills Kayla. Vowing revenge, Logan agrees to take part in a dangerous experiment that will fuse his bones with a powerful metal alloy called adamantium, which makes him virtually indestructible and gives him the strength needed to defeat his powerful brother. Subsequently betrayed by Stryker, Logan (now Wolverine) sets out to find his blood-lusting brother and stop the cycle of violence once and for all. Along the way, the temperamental hero is joined by fellow mutants John Wraith (will.i.am) and Remy LeBeau (aka Gambit, played by Taylor Kitsch). But before Wolverine can seek vengeance against Striker and his brother, he'll have to do battle with Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) a formidable mutant instilled with many powers. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    this film fills in Wolverine's backstory more completely and satisfyingly than any series of flashbacks inserted in another film ever could. That the Wolverine has a deep and compelling history only revealed incrementally over time in the comic books only increases the satisfaction of watching this film that features character development and personal relationships beyond the set action requirements of a superhero film.

    An interesting look at the background and origins of everyone''s favorite, Wolverine. It might not be all X-men fans cup of tea, but it was worth watching. As a side note, this movie came with a sticker for a free movie ticket (up to $7.50) to Logan, but when I removed the sicker, the glue had smudged the code off the back. So, no free ticket for me, which kind of sucks.

    I actually like the movie. I know the complaints about Deadpool, but at least the gave us a perfect movie of him a few years later. I do like that they tried to follow the comic for the first few minutes but then they had to veer way off course. Leiv Schweiber was the perfect Sabertooth.
