“Rusted Claws Prevail!”

published 24/08/2011

ProA good idea!

ConsPoorly executed with a bad script.

Wolverine has justifiably become more of a household name since the first X Men was released. Wolverine himself is a much loved and respected character from the Marvel Universe and is a formidable member of the X Men in his own right, so for Marvel to release a film telling his background story...

ProGood x men film, nice effects, reasonable script

Conswould have been better as an 18, really really bad...

I’ll be honest from the start. I’ve always liked X men and Wolverine was my favourite character. I thought Hugh Jackman was an excellent choice to fill the role and so when I heard they were doing this film, I got a little over excited. Alas, it was ruined. It could have been so much better.

Product Information : X-Men Origins - Wolverine (Blu-ray)

Manufacturer's product description

As the title implies, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE is the back story of the fiery and conflicted Wolverine (né James Logan), whose mutant powers include killer claws that shoot from his knuckles and a regenerative ability that allows him to live seemingly forever. Taking a few mild liberties but staying relatively faithful to the comic-book source material, ORIGINS follows Logan from his first recognition of his mutant powers as a young child up through his infamous adamantium rebirth and the total memory loss that would subsequently fuel his angry quest. Wolverine’s story has enough intriguing details to allow for a grown-up psychodrama in the mold of THE DARK KNIGHT, and the actors on hand--including Danny Huston as Stryker and Liev Schreiber as Logan’s half-brother, Victor (aka Sabretooth)--have the chops to deliver. Director Gavin Hood, however, opts in favor of cinematic razzle-dazzle heavy on John Woo-style action-ballet and CGI glitz. From Deadpool’s eye-popping swordplay (the action-adventure equivalent of Riverdance) to the tightrope-walk of a fight scene in the film’s finale, WOLVERINE is a blockbuster action film in the most fundamental sense of the word.
