"X-Men Origins: Wolverine is awesome!"
1 stars"

That's what I would have said if I was an 8yr old boy on a sugar high.

The dialog is nothing special; it's all forced cheesy one liners or serious secret government banter. I would like to tip my hat to Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) and Liv Schreiber (Sabretooth) – they completely embodied their characters and are enjoyable to watch. Ryan Reynolds is good as Wade Wilson (aka Dead Pool) but he only has five minutes screen time. The acting from the rest of the cast is below average; I blame the casting crew and producers for this, e.g. Will I Am, from Black Eyed Peas… Why?

The CGI is not flash and definitely not up with today's standards, e.g. The impeccable Iron Man. Wolverine's claws looked terrible. Compared to the three previous X-men films they looked plastic.

The PG13 rating is an annoying gimmick to make as much money as possible, sacrificing the realism of blood for profit. The guy has six knives in his hands and slices and dices people like fish for a living – where is the blood? Is Wolverine tickling his opponents to death? Note the first three X-Men films are also PG13 but this is the Origins of Wolverine – his motto is “I'm the best there is at what I do. But what I do best isn't very nice”.

You would think with over 20yrs of source material from the comics, the writers/director could have created something more intelligent. I seriously believe no one on the set (apart from the actors) have actually picked up an X-Men comic, because if they had it would have been so much better. We now come to expect our comic book hero films to be as marvelous as Iron Man or as remarkable as The Dark Knight but the problem with Wolverine Origins is it's just another one of Fox's big budget blow outs.

However, I do have the mentality of an 8yr old boy that just ate a thousand jelly beans so despite all its flaws I had a great time with it. I was cheering and yelling and laughing and making all kinds of noises. It was an action packed, blow stuff up in yo face growling monstrosity of explosions, implosions and megaplosions! You can't get hung up on dialogue or story in this film – you know it's rubbish, I recommend watching this on Blu-Ray at home with your mates, with lots of beers. This way you can enjoy it in the moment and forget about it all the next morning, just like your most regrettable one night stand. Alternatively you could use amnesia bullets.

"EYE CANDY FOR THE LADIES AND ACTION FOR THE MEN"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Ladies see Hugh Jackman at his best! Gives the back story of how wovlerine came to be. The stunts and explosions are great in the Blue ray and the little extras you get on the special features top it all off. FANTASTIC MOVIE!!

"Good movie"
5 stars"

I am not a hardcore X-Men fan but I have seen all the movies and this is near the top. Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine superbly as always. A great movie and good addition to the X-Men movies.

"I was wrong!"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I used to think there wasnt a lot of difference between dvd and bluray until we got a bluray and now after watching this I thought he was going to jump out and get me lol, totally awesome, thoroughly recommend.

"Awesome quality movie!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Perfect addition to the original x-men trilogy, this blu-ray disk is super good quality, and a very enjoyable movie, showing what is in my opinion the franchises coolest hero! Plus the free digital copy is an added bonus.

Description

Hugh Jackman reprises the role that made him a superstar as the fierce fighting machine who possesses amazing healing powers, retractable claws and a primal fury!

Leading up to the events of X-MEN, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE tells the story of Wolverine’s e­pically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe whose appearances in the film series have long been anticipated!
