X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)


Unlike previous X-Men films, this movie tells the story of a single mutant, James Logan a.k.a Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) starting with his childhood until the day he lost his memory (directly related to X-Men 2). Many mutants appear in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but I have to say that the most remarkable was Remy LeBeau (Taylor Kitsch), a.k.a Gambit. But I really liked Ryan Reynolds part too.

Even though the fighting scenes are good, I have to say that a little more blood would have given the movie more value. Another con about X-Men Origins, is the lack of consistence between this movie’s storyline and the storyline of the previous movies. Details like these can really make a difference in a movie like this one.

So we can say that X-Men Origins isn’t a bad movie, but it’s not a brilliant one either. X-Men fans would enjoy it, (except the storyline flaw of course), and may like it more than its precedents. It’s nothing as good as the comic books though.

Rating: 5.5/10 IMDb rating: 6.7/10
