X-Men Origins: Wolverine

MPAA Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence, and some partial nudity.
This thrilling action movie stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The story gets under way as the boy who will become Wolverine makes a shocking discovery about his family bloodline, and gains a brother in the process. Flash forward to when they are fighting in Vietnam, when their targets begin to include innocent civilians. Logan, fed up with fighting moves to Canada, where he builds a home with pretty schoolteacher Kayla. Informed by his old commanding officer Stryker that the members of his old team are being targeted for death, Logan is heartbroken when Victor finds and kills Kayla. Vowing revenge, Logan agrees to take part in a dangerous experiment that will fuse his bones with a powerful metal alloy, which makes him virtually indestructible and gives him the strength needed to defeat his powerful brother. Before Wolverine can seek vengeance against Striker and his brother, he'll have to do battle with Deadpool, a mutant designed with many powers. I thought this was a great film, despite what the critics are saying about it. It kept me on the edge of my seat and provided comedic moments in the process. Not seeing the other X-Men movies probably made me enjoy it more. This thrilling journey takes you on an exhilarating ride and makes you want more. 3 and a half out of 4 stars.
