While I’m a huge fan of anything Marvel and usually a lover of their films, X-Men Origins: Wolverine was definitely a flop. The idea of spinning off origin stories from the success of the other X-Men films was a good idea. However the execution was terrible, several of the fight scenes were forced and cheesy. It made the movie drag because the plot wasn’t stellar either. The emotional investment into the characters the viewer feels is nonexistent. Don’t get me wrong finally seeing Deadpool and Gambit in a film was great, but it could have been so much better. Watching this film just leaves the viewer with the feeling that Marvel really dropped the ball on this film.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
There is really no good place to being with this film. It honestly is a horrendous way to introduce staples into the Marvel film serious. Deadpool who for some reason isn’t created the way that he should have been. The issue that he is supposed to be a loud mouth who suddenly has no mouth and Cyclopes’ powers. While the fights between Wolverine and and Sabertooth are honestly lack luster and the big budget box office feel isn’t really there. Honestly they should have thought about this film a lot more before giving it the green light.
