X-Men Origins: Wolverine (12A) XX out of XXXXX

Review is spot on, it is awful.

The direction is pedestrian and muddled, massive plot holes that have you slapping your face.....SPOILER BELOW:

Wolverine is made 'indestructible' then escapes the facility only to be hunted down by a man in a helicopter with a gun sent by the very man who just told the audience that Wolverine is indestructible!

Only after helicopter man is duly dispatched the titanium tipped bullets come out (why they weren't given to helicopter-guy is a mystery) and it's been said that 'Only these will stop him' only to then be told, 'no it'll just make him forget''s all just so shoddy.

SHOOT: I give this flick a 8.5/10 (or 4 stars out of 5). I don't think this review reflects the average view, but may speak for the comic book fanbase.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Beastly badass Wolverine (Jackman) is a member of elite military squadron Team X. But when he tries to leave violence behind to become a family man, he finds his past catching up with him in brutal fashion — not least his carnage-loving half-brother Sabretooth (Schreiber).


Can everyone stop making moody origin stories now, please? While not a disaster, this isn’t the claws-out, rampaging adventure we hoped for. No-one cares where Wolverine found his jacket — a spin-off with him kicking ass in Japan would have been way more fun.
