"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" Movie Review
I saw "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". This is a prequel to the three "X-Man" movies. As you can gusses it fouced on Logon /Wolverine (Hugh Jackman ; "The Prestige"). It starts out with Logon and a friend Victor Creed / Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber; "Scream1,2 and 3") as kid then goes into a montage of showing Logon and his friend fighting in every war from Civil War to the Vietnam War with. After that, they join a special unit in the military with other mutinous. Then Logo finds the women of his dreams. Not much more I can say with give away all the great, turns, and tie in with the first three "X-Men" movies. At least for the people that did not read the comics.
As all three "X-Men" movies before this"X-Men Origins: Wolverine", There is a lot of great action and fighting scenes as there will be in an "X-Man" movie. The dialog was good. Logon /Wolverine (Hugh Jackman ; "The Prestige") has his normal quick with smartass comments. The acting was good. I spent half movie wondering how, does any of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" tie into the first three "X-Men" movies. This "X- Man" movie is a close second in the series. By the end of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" it all comes together with showing Wolverine past and (Small spoiler alert: how Wolverine was also meant to be an "X-Men".) at lest with the ending I saw. With that being said, read this story about the ending and staying after the end of the credits: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap
Also, stay until the end of the credits.
Director: Gavin Hood (Rendition 2007)
Writers (WGA): David Benioff (The Kite Runner 2007) (screenplay) and
Skip Woods (Hitman 2007) (screenplay)
I give"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" three and a half claws out of five claws.
