X-Men Origins: Wolverine2009 | Gavin Hood
You'll witness the birth of Wolverine. From early childhood through numerous wars. But mainly you'll see his fight as a part of the Weapon X team, which he ends up deserting and fighting.

Yet another great Marvel-based action movie!
I like the genre, and the fact, that I've never really read the comics, may cloud my judgment a bit.
The action part of the movie is really great, but at times, they seem to skip a couple of pages ahead, leaving your cravings for more info on Wolverine only half satisfied. So I would call the history, the origin part, only average.
I've always seen Wolverine as a classic Dirty Harry anti-hero type, but put up against his nemesis Sabertooh, he almost seem friendly and nice. That disappointed me a bit.
I'm very much looking forward to the next X-men movie in the line.

Definitely better than a I thought it would. But a Marvel fan as me, could also hope for something more!
The story is different from the comics, and that's why the score stays on 6 and doesn't goes up to 7 as it could have done. They spent 5-7 minutes trying to tell the story of how Logan discovers his abilities, but I mean they spent 6 comic books doing the same, so they might as well have left that part out of the movie for all I care.
Then there's all these things where Logan gets all touchy and shows of feelings. I just wish they would have made a movie focusing on the dark side of Wolverine. But is has some VERY nice effect scenes, that are the comics worthy all the way. And the story makes sense it it own Hollywood way.
I was definitely worth the ticket for the Cinema :)
Looking forward to a sequel, hehe...
