X-Men Origins: Wolverine

"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" tells the story of Wolverine's epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.

Kelly and I watched this movie on DVD on new year's eve. It was pretty good, though I personally don't think it was as good as the other X-Men films. I thought I'd enjoy it more than them, since Wolverine is one of my favourite characters (the other is Rogue) and I figured since it was focusing on him then it would be a case of, "yay! Lots of Wolverine action!" But... *Shrugs*... Well, basically, despite the fact I did enjoy the movie, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the other X-Men movies. Despite the fact it was basically all Wolverine, all the time. So, yeah, a great movie. But I wouldn't go so far as to say it was one of my new favourites or anything. I would watch it again though.

I'm not much of an X-men fan... well actually I've never seen it so I don't know if I'm a fan or not! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I saw X-Men: Wolverine at the theatre when it was released here in the U.S. I liked it.

I've seen parts of the original X-Men movie but that's about it. I'm glad you liked this one enough that you would watch it again.

I've never seen any of these movies! I'm still trying to watch all of the ones in the American Film Institute's top 100. I think I'm up to about the year 1958 or so now. :)
