From Amazon.co.uk

Wolverine, fan favourite of the X-Men universe in both comic books and film, gets his own movie vehicle with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a tale that reaches way, way back into the hairy mutant's story. Somewhere in the wilds of northwest Canada in the early 1800s, two boys grow up amid violence: half-brothers with very special powers. Eventually they will become the near-indestructible warriors (and victims of a super-secret government program) known as Wolverine and Sabretooth, played respectively by Hugh Jackman (returning to his role) and Liev Schreiber (new to the scene). It helps enormously to have Schreiber, an actor of brawny skills, as the showiest villain; the guy can put genuine menace into a vocal inflection or a shift of the eyes. Danny Huston is the sinister government operative whose experiments keep pulling Wolverine back in, Lynn Collins is the woman who shares a peaceful Canadian co-existence with our hero when he tries to drop out of the program, and Ryan Reynolds adds needed humour, at least for a while.

The fast-paced early reels give an entertaining kick-off to the Wolverine saga, only to slow down when a proper plot must be put together--but isn't that perpetually the problem with origin stories? And despite a cool setting, the grand finale is a little hemmed in by certain plot essentials that must be in place for the sequels, which may be why characters do nonsensical things. So, this one is fun while it lasts, if you're not looking for a masterpiece, or an explanation for Wolverine's facial grooming. --Robert Horton, Amazon.com

Format:Blu-ray
This X-Men film is set before the first three X-Men films and tells us the story of Wolverine and his twisted brother Sabretooth. The action comes thick and fast with a clever plot for a comic based movie. Deadpool makes a great villian and his final battle with Wolverine is super cool. One of my favourite X-Men heroes Gambit is introduced to us at long last, it only took four films but better late then never. I enjoyed this film just as much as the other three X-Men films and Hugh Jackman is on top form as Wolverine. The blu-ray transfar is razor sharp just like Wolverines claws!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 21 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
This film is the best X Men ever! That might have have something to do with the main character!! The action is better than ever and the special effects are wow. Hugh Jackman is also gorgeous but that's just my opinion. If you like "popcorn movies" ie non stop action, then go for this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hungry like the wolf 29 May 2009
Format:DVD
Hugh Jackman reprises his role as the steel-clawed vest wearing mutant from the X-Men comics and film franchise, in this high-octane spin-off movie. Unlike the X-Men films, this movie explores Wolverine's famed berserker rage; telling his back-story and his origins. Liev Schreiber, fresh from playing Daniel Craig's brother in Jewish wartime resistance flick `Defiance', plays Sabretooth, Wolverine's nemesis and half-brother. How the two moved from being siblings to bitter rivals - through their involvement in the nefarious `Weapon X' programme - is one of the main plot strands in this film, and Schreiber's character is very much representative of the dark side of Wolverine's nature, the conflict between the two forming the heart of the movie.

With a love interest in the appealing form of Inuit Indian mutant `Kayla Silverfox'; Black Eyed Peas supremo Will I Am playing teleporting Texan `John Wraith'; the intriguingly named unknown Canadian actor Taylor Kitsch as Cajun mutant and `kinetic manipulator' Gambit'; and relative veteran Danny Huston as the sinister `William Stryker' - the man behind the Weapons X programme - there is plenty of acting talent on show; ex-Hobbit Dominic Monaghan, fresh from his watery exit from TV series Lost even makes a fleeting appearance; is this guy ubiquitous or what?

Overall this is an explosive and highly entertaining take on the comic book mutant and where he came from; it's very much a 'popcorn movie' but still pretty enjoyable; as someone who found that the X-Men movie series had definitely run out of steam by the third installment, I found Wolverine to be pretty similar fare but slightly less indulgent, although the many different mutants and their powers on display make this a real smorgasbord experience rather than a solid story.

By Sam
Format:DVD
Origin stories tend to be a bit of a drag, I mean watching Spider-Man, X-Men, Wolverine and so on it feels like these franchise openers fulfil an almost obligatory back story that simply sets up a far more interesting instalment, the sequels to Spiderman and X-Men were both vastly superior to their predecessors and if Wolverine gets a second chance on his own which I'm sure he will, then maybe justice will be done to he character. As a story X-Men Origins: Wolverine is routine enough, savage family tragedy sets Logan off with his antagonistic, deranged half brother Victor Creed (played menacingly to terrific effect by Liv Schreiber) whom he fights alongside in he civil war, both World Wars, as well as Vietnam. Things are going well until Victor decapitates a senior officer which long story short brings a mysterious army colonel William Stryker (Danny Huston) into the mix. He offers the brothers a chance to work alongside fellow mutants that include samurai sword wielding mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), teleporter John Wraith (will.i.am), The Blob (Kevin Durand), technopath Chris Bradley (Dominic Monaghan) and lethal marksman Agent Zero (Daniel Henney) in a covert military unit under Strykers command. It's here the movie enjoys it's finest spell, watching Reynolds mouth off as Wade in a role he was born to play, and the team showcasing their respective talents during an infiltration of an African stronghold is as good a sequence in a Marvel superhero outing that I've ever seen.

Alas this carefree fun comes to an abrupt end when Logan witness an atrocity committed by the group and deserts his comrades for the quiet life in the Canadian Rockies with a sweet school teacher (Lynn Collins) in a cosy cabin while Logan makes a honest living as a lumberjack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent But Unmemorable Action Fare 11 Oct 2009
By MLA VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Wolverine is one of the most beloved of comic book creations. His dark and vengeful character combined with a compassion that troubled and led to self-destructive behaviour has long been amongst the most popular characters of the genre. I know little of comic book history myself but perhaps because I know Barry Windsor-Smith the Weapon X storyline is one of the few that I have some familiarity with. With that in mind I had fairly low hopes for this film as the other X Men films have been dreadful. This one is not a terrible film but it is hardly one that will linger long in the mind.

The positives can be summed as: lots of explosions, three great characters for the ladies to enjoy, and some nice menace from the evil brother character. The negatives can be summed as: uninteresting plot, holes galore, poor quality audio and scoring, and a surprising lack of emotional involvement.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine does a relatively good job with what he has to hand. He's in great shape and definitely scored as eye candy during his escape scene for the company I watched this with. He is believable as the gruff and tortured soul that is Wolverine, his lust for violence sated over the years in an excellent opening montage of warfare from the last century. It all begins to fall apart though come Vietnam as he and his equally violent and indestructible brother Sabretooth find themselves on the wrong side of the moral compass. This speaks as much to the massive change in western values in the last 30 years as it does these characters in particular - throughout history they would have been lauded as they were for their violence in the previous decades but now they are no longer acceptable.
