In 1990, my folks let me choose a comic book, one Saturday, to read in the car on the way home from shopping. Chance led me to pick one up because it had four stories, and it featured one story with the Hulk in it. However, the main character was someone I had never heard of: Wolverine. A...

ConsStorys a tad ropey, too many mutants

Hugh Jackman has a lot to thank Tom Cruise for. If it hadn’t have been for overruns on Mission Impossible 2, we would have been seeing Dougray Scott getting the claws out in Bryan Singer’s X-Men back in 2000. So after a small twist of fate and three X-Men movies later we have the first attempt at...

I have been a big fan of X-Men for years but I have to confess that I never followed the comics. I watched the animated version instead, which didn't require me to use my imagination like it does for the comics, it started around 1992 and when I saw wolverine I took to him like a fish to water...

X-Men Origins Wolverine was the first of the Wolverine solo movies sadly it didn’t go very well. This movie is very disappointing for X-men Fans and even more disappointing for Comic Book fans. It gave us a lot of information on Wolverines past but didn’t do it very well, it made Wolverine a love...

Product Information : X-Men Origins - Wolverine (DVD)

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.
