X-Men Origins: Wolverine – REVIEW

X-Men Origins: Wolverine had a lot of shitty Tweets: everything from “Wolverine sucked!” to “Wolverine wasn’t half bad.”  Granted, I went into the movie thinking that it was, indeed, going to suck. I assumed it would be another one of those unbalanced movies where storyline overwhelms the action, romance overwhelms the character development, titties overwhelm the… well, you can never have enough titties.

Surprisingly, I kind of liked the film. There were a couple of areas that definitely needed improvement (i.e. casting Will.I.Am), but it was a good mix of story and action. You would learn about something, then see action. And so on. However, the character development of each mutant was very weak. The movie did a poor job at explaining where each mutant was coming from and things felt unfinished.

If you’re not doing well in our current economy, save your money and wait for it when it comes to iTunes rental: it’s not really worth the popcorn money.
