Tammy and I decided that since we hadn’t been to a movie in what seems like years (and likely has been) that we’d get out last Friday and see X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Now that I’ve had a week to process it (no, it wasn’t a deep film but I’ve had a lot going on) I figured that I’d do a short write up.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
If you’re looking for a deep, meaningful, plot-rich movie like Iron Man or The Dark Knight – you will not find it with Wolverine. If you are looking for a CGI-filled, violent action flick – you’ve found the right movie. At one hour and fourty minutes, it’s over just as it begins to get really good, but it delivers on what the film is supposed to be – an explanation of where Wolverine came from.
I enjoyed Liev Schreiber’s Sabertooth character much better than what was written for Tyler Mane in X-Men and X-Men 2. Schreiber’s character was much, much more cunning and evil than Mane’s doof sidekick.
All-in-all, I’ll give it a 6 out of 10.
