| X-Men Origins: Wolverine - a good addition to series
I am a big fan of the original trilogy of X-Men films. Wolverine is my favourite character so I was really looking forward to watching this.

I think the idea to learn more about his early life was a good idea. There was plenty of good over the top action and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is superb as usual but the story just wasn't as interesting as it could have been. It was just the kind of film where after 20 minutes it became very predictable.

Overall I would still recommend this film, whether you have seen the original trilogy or not it should be quite easy to follow. It was decent viewing, a good addition to the series but not as good as the others.

7/10

Trivia

Gavin Hood described this movie's central theme as Wolverine's inner struggle between his animalistic and human qualities: "I realized that Wolverine's great appeal lies in the fact that he's someone who, in some ways, is filled with a great deal of self-loathing by his own nature and he's constantly at war with himself."


Quotes

Young Victor Creed: You're always sick.
Young James Logan: You were sick when you were my age.


Goofs

(at around 1h 14 mins) When Wolverine and Gambit are flying in the plane, they are carrying on a normal conversation but without the use of headsets. In a small, two-seater plane it's nearly impossible to hear your own voice screaming, much less someone next to you, because of the proximity of the engine to the passengers.


Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There are two scenes set after the closing credits. The film's main post-credits scene is of the Deadpool, still alive after being decapitated, reaching for his head, leading into Deadpool (2016). An alternate post-credits scene seen (only on the DVD) is of Wolverine in a Japanese bar, leading into The Wolverine (2013). During the original theatrical run, which scene you saw was random depending on your theater; the home video version features the Deadpool scene after the credits and the Japanese bar scene is available on the two-disc DVD as a deleted scene.


Alternate Versions

German theatrical version was cut by the distributor before submission to the FSK to secure a "Not under 16" rating (the killing of the old couple is shortened, you don't see Wolverine igniting the gasoline). Ironically, the uncut version, submitted for the home video release, was rated "Not under 16" as well, thus rendering the cut theatrical version completely unnecessary.
