Movie Review For 'X-Men Origins Wolverine' - Rated PG-13
X-Men Origins Wolverine was released in theatres on May 1, 2009, available on DVD September 15, 2009, and directed by Gavin Hood. Starring Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston and Dominic Monaghan, X-Men Origins Wolverine is the story before X-Men. It charts the beginnings for Wolverine also known as James Logan.
When Logan, played by Jackman, accidentally kills his own father in a fit of rage and is looked upon as a freak by his mother, he leaves home to find his place in the world. With the help of his half-brother, Victor, better known as Sabertooth (Schreiber), Wolverine embarks on a journey through wars and time to fight the forces of evil. Sabertooth soon becomes consumed with bloodlust and in disgust, Wolverine sets out on his own.
Years later, a mutant killer is on the loose and the government needs Wolverine's help to stop him. The indestructible Wolverine is then created. Inevitably, Wolverine is betrayed by those closest to him and he is then forced to take revenge & free the other enslaved mutants.
I absolutely enjoyed this movie. It was in-your-face exciting and the fight scenes were amazing and well choreographed. Wolverine was action-packed from start to finish and it answered so many questions about where Wolverine came from before joining the X-Men.
I would recommend this movie to all ages, young and old. You will be on the edge of your seat and hungry for the next installment of this fantastic series. If the astonishing action scenes don't keep you utterly enthralled then the story line will!
I had a hard time deciding on the WebbWeaver rating I would give Wolverine...it is that good! Pick up this flick today; you will not be disappointed. I am giving X-Men Origins Wolverine a 5- spider rating.
