2.5 starsX-Men Origins: Wolverine - 5/5/2009

Tonight Tommy and I went to Movies 10 to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  The next action/adventure installment in the X-Men series.

Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine in this action filled story of his past, beginning in the mid-eighteenth century.  The movie also stars Liev Schreiber, Danny Huston and Lynn Collins, with Will i Am, Kevin Durand, Dominic Monaghan, Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Reynolds.

The film is full of fights, chases, explosions and great special effects.  The story quickly covers the time from Wolverine's childhood, over one hundred years ago, through the Vietnam War.  The vast majority of the movie shows the events in the late twentieth century.   The film covers the events in his life and shows where he comes from and how he becomes the mutant he is.  But the story is straightforward and has no real plot twists.

It is a good film, but not great.
