X Men Origins: Wolverine
Hugh Jackman, Live Schreiber, Lynn Collins, Danny Huston
Directed by Gavin Hood
Fox Home Entertainment 2009
107 minutes

X Men Origins Wolverine is a kick-ass action movie DVD. It may help to be familiar with the Marvel Comics X Men lore but after a couple of action packed scenes that set up some back story you do not really need to know or care about that stuff. X Men Origins Wolverine is very easy to get into and certainly entertains.

Logan aka Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Victor aka Sabretooth (Live Schreiber) are brothers with a similar superhero power and really really hard to kill. Stuff happens and gets blown up. They join a special ops run by a guy named Stryker (Danny Huston). Stuff happens and shot at and the brothers end up on opposite sides of good and evil. Stryker tells Logan someone is killing the special ops guys but Logan just wants to be left alone. Stuff happens and gets kicked around and Logan is convinced to go after the bad guy.

Wolverine figures out there is more than one bad guy to go after and there are more mutants around, some good, some bad.

This action movie DVD is a lot of fun to watch. It is full of really good tough guy lines, fight scenes, stuff blowing up, and everything else you expect from a movie like this. A couple of the blue screen scenes are obvious but since they are not part of an action sequence, who cares?

The plot itself is a bit loose but this is not the kind of movie where these things really matter. The final showdown is excellent with lots of ass kicking, things going boom, and so on.
