On X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
If ever a trailer spoiled more..
Anyway, got tempted into seeing this by warm words, and Wolverine always was a big of a highlight of the X-Men movies (though I can't say I remember much from them), and it pretty much follows the basic superhero movie formula; superhero ends up being the enemy of society due to special powers, gets enemies, gets nice life, nice life betrayed, lots of mano a mano fight scenes, special effect showoffs, have opening for sequels (this time the sequels are kinda here already, as this is before the first X-Men movie) and that's it.
It was decent enough entertainment, it didnt mess up fight scenes, the acting was good for what it was, and it had what you'd want from a popcorn movie. There really isn't much else to say.
As for bad stuff.. Well, one didn't really get to know wolverine much, except he was kickass and got betrayed and his family was a big defunct. For being about him, that's a bit.. Bad. Other superhero movies have done this better, or other action movies.
So it ends up being the typical ok popcorn movie:
Don't ask me what it was about next week, I won't recall.
