Movie: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8.5
Genre: Superhero, fantasy, adventure
Series or set: X-Men
Number in series: Unknown – I can’t figure out the order for all of these X-Men movies.
Primary actors: Hugh Jackman (!!!!), Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston
Length: Two hours
Based on: Marvel comic books, I think.
Time period: Mostly present.
Year it came out: 2009
My overall opinion: This was my very first introduction and going into it, I had absolutely no idea what X-Men was/were/are or what this movie was about. However, having seen this, I was eager to continue watching X-Men movies, and have continued steadily. :) Any Hugh Jackman fans out there? Yeah, thought there might a few. Well, you’ve gotta see this one! It’s amazing. There’s a little violence in a few places, and especially one of the opening scenes was…not nice. I didn’t like it. But for the most part, this was an enjoyable movie, especially the last half hour or so. And Wolverine has a really cool superpower. I've been flexing my fists for days...no blades yet. So it goes. Anyway. Great graphics, fast-paced storyline…kept me riveted.
