X-Men Origins: Wolverine

May 3, 2009

(chattahBox) — I have been a huge fan of X-Men since I was a little girl. While the comics were a bit before my time, the cartoon was right up my alley, and every Saturday morning I would wake up early to watch my favorite characters battle it out for mutant supremacy. But the movies had so far been a bit disappointing, and so I had low expectations for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

But I was blown away. While Wolverine has never been a favorite of mine from the series, I have found myself liking him a bit more after this movie. Not only does it delve into the secrets of Logan’s adamantium (which, admittedly, most of us already knew), but it also goes into his childhood, his connection with Sabertooth (Victor Creed), and Logan’s involvement in the number of wars he has fought. We were also able to see Silver Fox for the first time, and she was a main focus through the movie.

But even better then the fact that this whole movie was based around Team X was the fact that finally, for the first time in the movies, we got to see Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit. Gambit was one of my all time favorite X-Men as a kid, and I was one of the soppy many who religiously followed the Rouge/Gambit story line. What can I say, I shipped before there was shipping.

All in all, the special effects were amazing, the storyline was solid, the action was great, and the characters were perfect. From Agent Zero to William Stryker, the baddies were the real meat of this film, but you will love the back story, especially those who followed the comic or cartoon. This is the best of the series, so go watch it! Now!

Oh, and as a side note to all ladies/gay men who have a sweet spot for Hugh Jackman: we get some serious nudity in the adamantium experimentation scene. Hell yeah.
