Excerpt: Movie: This movie explain Logan's origin from the moment he realises that he is a mutant, his falling out with Sabretooth and Stryker, what inspired him to use the nickname "Wolverine", the manner he got the ademantium claws & coating/shielding on his bones and how he lost his memories. The "story telling" seemed quite rushed to explain all this to the point that some scenes looked like a documentary rather than a movie.
Poor execution of a story that should have been great
26 August 2013
Excerpt: If you are going to do an origin story of one of the more popular characters of the X-Men series, then this ticks all the boxes in terms of story, but unfortunately, despite the best efforts of Hugh Jackman who is by now very comfortable in the role, the execution is poorly handled.
Excerpt: I'm impressed with this movie. It's one of the best superhero movies I've seen! The video quality is good but it could be better. The sound is awesome. The extras is interesting to watch. Overall I'm happy with this Blu-ray!
Summary: A platitudinous effort that finds only minor redemption in some of it's key players (particularly Huston and Schreiber as the nefarious heads of the Weapon X program) and a surprisingly well-executed first act.
Excerpt: There were 3 X-Men films before X-Men Origins: Wolverine, each one starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Those X-Men films gave us very little background information on where Wolverine came from and how he became the person he was, so people naturally wanted to know more about this great characters origin.
Excerpt: A mutant with a healing factor that makes him virtually unkillable volunteers for an experiment that will transform him into "Weapon X" to revenge himself on the brother who murdered his sweetheart. Yes, that's the plot to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Shit, isn't it? It follows the usual blockbuster formula of montage, action sequence, montage, action sequence, montage, action sequence in a way that made me think that the franchise has become a victim of its own success; in...
Excerpt: I liked it really well, Hugh Jackson alsways my favorite X-Men and I thought it was a great action flick. CGI could be better at times but it was action from first to the last minute. PQ was very good, loaded with special features. It has been a few months since i've seen the first 3 but this one certainly one of the best.
Summary: Hugh Jackman was born to play this role. You empathized with the character, knew his history, and now what? The Gambit fight was cool, effects were okay, nothing left was good. Wolverine fanatics are in for a treat, I felt the X-Men collectively make for a better movie.
