With the x men films having rather come to a halt after last stand, and with the practicalities of reuniting a starry and increasingly expensive cast for more of them proving prohibitive, what better way to relaunch the franchise than with solo movies instead?

Naturally enough the first of them focuses on wolverine, the most popular character. Hugh Jackman reprises the role and is also involved in a producing capacity.

Rather than put him in the middle of a big adventure, as was first mooted for this project, the movie instead has to fill in his back story. A story that remained hidden in comics till a few years back, when Marvel comics realised that if they didn't tell it then Hollywood would, so they got in there first.

In 19th century canada, a night of revelations and violence leaves two young boys - one sickly and one feral - on the run. Can you guess which one will grow up to be wolverine? The two stop ageing, and spend the years fighting in conflict after conflict, shown by images from them in a well done montage during the credits.

Then we find them working in a special ops unit with other mutants. Some of them are rather more interesting than others, but the ones that are - which is down to the charisma of the actors in question - don't get as much screen time as the others.

And then more exposition follows as Wolverine searches for answers, finds love, and is forced to search for revenge.

That's the first third of the film. It has a lot of detail to fill in, and whilst it's all watchable it's at the expense of anything else interesting. Suddenly though, about a third of the way in, an action sequence does kick start the film. And we're into more ususl blockbuster action fair for the rest of it.

'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' is arguably one of the most anticipated comic book movies of all - Hugh Jackman's portrayal of the eponymous hero was one of the highlights of the 'X-Men' series of films, so it was only natural he'd eventually get to take centre stage in a film of his own. As the title suggests, this film explores Logan's background, from childhood right through to his meeting with General Stryker (as seen as 'X-Men 2', here played by Danny Huston) and involvement in the sinister US Government Weapon X project. What the film does well is fleshing out Logan's backstory a little, though whether that was entirely necessary, I'm not sure - there was certainly no point where I felt I knew or understood the character any better than I would have done had the film been a straightforward solo adventure set alongside, or after, the events of earlier films. The Weapon X element of the plot felt like it had been explored sufficiently in 'X-Men 2', and as a result, those segments were among the least interesting to me, as there was the definite feeling that this was re-treading old ground. The wider plot was engaging even if it didn't feel especially original, and there were a few superficial similarities to some earlier 'X-Men' films that lent it a 'recycled' feel at times.

The film's big strength - and draw - lies in its characters, though. Hugh Jackman is everything you'd expect as Wolverine, and easily the best thing about the film. He's come to embody the character, at least on screen, in a way that relatively few actors can manage in a role of this kind.

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!

By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Sept. 2013
Format: DVD
The film starts in 1845 and by the time the credits is over, it is up to date. Wolverine and his brother are recruited to fight in a special mutant force. The mutants are never introduced. There is an assumption you know these characters from previous movies or comics. I would not recommend this film as an introduction to X-Men.

The special forces are more brutal than what Wolverine wants to be. "This isn't what we signed up for, " he says as he walks out. He becomes a Canadian and lives quietly like as a lumber jack. His brother is on a rampage...and Wolverine's life becomes disrupted. He must once again fight, only this time he is stronger and is more of a killer.

The movie ties in nicely with the other 4 X-Men movies, which should be viewed to get an overall picture, which is difficult to obtain in this film alone. The acting was sufficient. Good CG, super action and fighting. It has plot twists, so pay attention. The movie sprinkles in the right amount of humor, drama, and truisms into the dialouge to make it a fun watch.
