X-Men Origins - Wolverine Reviews
Several years later Creed is on a rampage killing all members of the team including his romantic interest. He teams up with General Stryker to give him the adamantine structure that Wolverine is infamous for. He spends the rest of the film trying to get revenge on Stryker and Creed. Along the way, he comes across Gambit, the Blob, and a few other mutants. He learns Stryker is collecting mutants to try and harness their powers.
Wolverine Origins is a film that focuses too much on action and does not have enough story to go with it. None of the action scenes are bad, but they don't particularly stand out either. The film does not seem to take much regard to other movies in the franchise either. We have a Deadpool villain that is able to absorb other people's powers. The movie does not tie loose ends too well and does not even connect the dots for how Wolverine joined the X-Men. Origins had potential, but mostly falls flat on its face.
Having said that, someone gave the script a fancy pants polish, because it bristles with some corking one-liners, and some genuine laugh-out-loud moments. It's just a shame the sheer preposterousness of much of the action is even funnier. But at least you get to see Hugh Jackman's arse, which is almost worth an extra point of its own. A letdown. Er... the film, that is...
