Default Re: Rate and Review X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

I was really unhappy with this movie. It's less about Wolverine's origin and more about throwing a bunch of random mutants at us to distract us from the lack of story going on in the movie.

The special effects are piss poor, the acting isn't much better and would it have killed anyone on the set to do a little research on the source material? I know the movie was trying to appeal to a broader audience rather than just comic book fans, but you don't want to alienate anyone either and it seems that's exactly what this movie did.

I hope they right the wrongs of the first film in the sequel, whether or not I pay to see it, time will tell. I was hoodwinked by the trailer the first time around, next time I'll have to be a bit more cautious it seems.
