Play.com Review

Undoubtedly the star of the X-Men movie trilogy, Hugh Jackman makes his return as the iconic, titular character of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Showing his diversity earlier in the year with his dramatic turn opposite Nicole Kidman in Australia, the mutton-chopped, big-haired Jackman returns, with a powerful performance of a different kind, in this action packed X-Men prequel.

The premise of the film is simple, as it explores the violent past that the amnesiac Wolvie is unaware of in the X-Men films. Jackman slips back into the role of our favourite comic book Canuck as if those adamantium bones were his own, given an imposing nemesis in the form of Sabretooth, with Liev Schreiber (The Omen) really getting his teeth into the role. The superb opening sequence, which depicts Wolverine and Sabretooth side-by-side in many famous wars throughout the decades, gives a real sense of the history the two share, as well as the ferocity they are capable of. Whilst their tumultuous relationship is central, the film also explores the 'Weapon X' Program behind Wolverine's adamantium skeleton and resulting memory loss. With this comes a host of supporting characters including the mastermind of the program, William Stryker (Danny Huston - 30 Days of Night), and the wise-cracking, scene-stealing, "merc with a mouth" Deadpool, played excellently by Ryan Reynolds (Smokin' Aces). There are plenty of other mutant cameos throughout, such as the long-awaited appearance of the kinetically charged fan favourite Gambit, as well as a few more obscure, lesser roles sure to appease comic book fans.

At its simplest, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is an action movie and it delivers in spades. Littered with explosive action set pieces throughout, it is a joy to watch Jackman's Wolverine go on a berserker rampage - his duel with an attack chopper being a particular highlight! Based on the comics, the story is faithful enough that long time fans won't be too disappointed, but as usual with films of this ilk, certain creative liberties are taken. However, this shouldn't detract from the fact that Rendition director Gavin Hood has crafted a blockbuster both strong and sharp, with the subplots tying together nicely for a satisfying ending. If Wolverine is your bag, this is for you, Bub.

Heard mixed reviews of this. Surely ok, a beer and peanuts movie. Pricey but hot for the package, blu/sd/digi pack. Will be £8 for these sets eventually imo when prices fall to their natural state in a few years time.

Bought the blu ray of the film on it's own not long ago for under £6 when shopto was doing them.

So terrible in fact that a sequel was planned before this one was shown in the cinemas (in the US).

"Heat" from me. I'll struggle to convince myself I don't need this item by the end of today.

Thanks andywedge.

it is an awful movie.It's best forgotten about and people shouldnt encourage any more bad X Men movies made by Fox by buying this trash.
too many characters, terrible storyline and really cheesy looking cgi effects.
avoid!

from a Marvel point of view I didn't like the movie, infact I didn't enjoy any of the x-men movies. Hated the character with loads of different abilities

however from an entertainment point of view this was ok, and probably the best one out of the x-men series.

I liked this film but yet I want to wait for this to be £8 before getting it

edit:
good to see a blu-ray deal back on hukd's... not seen any recently!

sorry, but there is no way this film is deserving of anyones money for one copy of it, let alone 3.

a truly disjointed hack job that may have started out with good intentions but is just horribly executed.

the x-men movies seem to have taken the 90s Batman franchise approach to quality: two well made, faithful adaptations, followed by a third, weaker but not completely awful effort then finished off with a godawful abomination that just tarnishes the whole series.

if you like it, fair play to you and can i recommend 1997's Batman & Robin by Joel Schumacher as it would probably appeal to you also.

Rep to you sir, for such a fine and entertaining summary!

I'm afraid I can't bring myself to bestow heat on this deal. It's a good price, but the film is so terrible you'd derive more entertainment from simply burning the money.

Yes, I agree with you that the third "X-Men" movie was the weakest, and that "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" didn't follow the original comic book storyline. If you watched it with the anticipation of a moving picture version of the Marvel Comics drawings then you would be sadly disappointed. However, if you watched for a feel-good popcorn-friendly action movie that put Hugh Jackman back on the screen in a role perfect for his physical attributes then you can do much worse.

I'm looking forward to the sequel to this movie (due next year), and a further "X-Men Origins" film that will document the (different, probably) stories of Eric Lensherr & his early friendship with Charles Xavier. We also have a "Deadpool" movie to look forward to next year, and there was once talk of a storyline for the character of Ororo Munroe too (but that seems to have been shelved for the time being).

On a related topic, the next Spider-man movie will be another re-boot (with another lead actor), and the forthcoming "Iron Man 2", "[The First Avenger:] Captain America", "Nick Fury", & "Thor", & "The Avengers" movies will all be on my cinema-going wish-list for the next few years.

I don't watch these kinds of movies expecting the best acting, & the best story, but I do go with the excitement of seeing the Marvel universe on-screen in a media form I can digest easily.

If you don't like the movies, that's fine. I'll probably not be inviting you to the cinema with me anyway! ;)

The Dark Knight smashed all those films. DC got something right for once.

The only decent Marvel film so far has been Iron Man. X - Men 2 was alright.

Daredevil was by far the worst.

Looking forward to Thor.

This film is very funny,

If Wolverine promises to pay for braking your sink... don't believe him!

If you've got one weapon capable of killing wolverine, don't give it to your expert marksman.

French people talk with american accents.

I think I may watch this again, of course I'll need a drink before starting it. No way can this be enjoyed full sober.

I agree with you about the recent reboot of the Batman franchise, but "Superman Returns" wasn't anywhere near as engaging as the previous instalments with Christopher Reeve. Brandon Routh may have had the looks, but not the charisma.

I hope the new "Wonder Woman" movie does that character justice as well. (If that is a success I expect we'll probably see "The Flash" make a speedy [sorry] comeback too).

"Daredevil" was just too long, I think... or, if the Elektra & Daredevil characters were in one movie together then it may have made two bad movies better. Given that Ryan Reynolds is now playing his all-time favourite Marvel character ("Deadpool") I expect he'll not be back for "Daredevil 2".

My favourite Marvel universe character inspired movie franchise so far has been Wesley Snipes' "Blade". I have tem all on DVD, but I can always watch any of the three when they are on the small screen. Even though I enjoyed "Batman Begins" & "The Dark Knight" (seeing both at the cinema) I have got to a point of saturation keep seeing them replayed on Sky TV.

PS. Whilst we are on the subject (sort of)... anybody care to comment on Will Smith's portrayal of "Hancock"?

PPS. And any thoughts on if "The Incredible Hulk" can be unleashed for a third time, or even what cast you would like to see in the soon-to-be-rebooted "Fantastic Four"?

Whatever gets you through the day, as long as it doesn't impact me, is fine.

There are many funny lines in all of the Marvel movies if you know the background to the characters. I like the way the scriptwriters do that... even if they change the story, or the characters, or a time-line to fit the plot on film, they will give a 'nod' to those who have followed the comics.

For example, in the first X-Men movie when Logan sees his black suit & Scott Summers asks him if he was expecting one in yellow spandex.

I think you'll find the two characters in the film that befriended Wolverine were French-Canadian; so their accents were as expected.

The brown & yellow biker jacket of their son's they give Wolverine was a great scene (for real fans) too.

Sorry you didn't get anything from the movie other than being intoxicated.

BFN,
