X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Written By Awir Aditya on Saturday, May 22, 2010 | 2:44 AM


Genre: Fantasy/Science-fiction/Action

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Leiv Schreiber, Danny Huston, Lynn Collins, Taylor Kitsch

The origination of Wolverine (Jackman) was a well-kept secret, even from Logan himself. Logan had an elder brother Victor (Schreiber) who was also a mutant like him and had similar powers. The brothers enlist themselves in the army and take on a secret mission under Colonel William Stryker (Huston). Victor slowly loses his humanity and becomes more animal day-by-day whereas Logan tries to refrain himself from becoming a creature. Logan does not like the way the mission is going and quits to lead a quiet country life with his girlfriend Kayla (Collins). Logan's past comes back to haunt him with Victor going on a killing spree and Col. Stryker offering him help to get even with his brother. The movie plot is different from what we have previously been seeing in the X-Men movies but its still not completely different. Although the movie tries to shed the super-hero image and look more like a conspiracy, it still looks like a super-hero movie and would always look like one. Thankfully, one doesn't really have to be familiar with any of the previous movies to get a hold of the story of this one.

Thumbs up: Good action, interesting plot
Thumbs down: Poor climax

Rating: 7.2/10
