Fans of the X-Men trilogy have been begging to see more of their favorite mutant and now they have that chance with the super hero action film, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This story begins in the 1850’s where two young half brothers named Logan and Victor are forced to leave their home when their father is killed and Logan kills the murderer. When the boys become young men, Logan (Hugh Jackman) later named Wolverine because of his retractable bony claws that protrude from his knuckles and Victor Creed (Liev Schreiver) later named Sabre Tooth, fight in almost every war in the next century. They’re immortal and stopped aging when they just happened to be Hugh Jackman’s age.) While in Vietnam, they join a black Ops team formed by General William Stryker (Danny Husdon) that is comprised of other mutants with super powers. Some of these future X-Men include Deadpool who is skilled with the sword, Agent Zero, an excellent marksmen, John Wraith who can teleport, the Blob who is both obese and super strong and Bolt who can manipulate electricity. Years later, after Wolverine leaves the team, he learns that Sabre Tooth has turned rogue and is killing all of the team members. Circumstances force Wolverine to track down Sabre Tooth and General Stryker with the help of one of the more popular future mutants named Gambit (Taylor Kits). Over the years, General Stryker had been putting together a special mutant with multiple super powers and Wolverine has to stop him. It should be obvious that, there is no continuity in this film; in fact, there are plot holes so big Wolverine must have made them with his claws. None of this really matters because there’s a ton of action for the guys and the Jackman for the girls. On the bright side, it does have colorful characters, a superb cast and a fast paced story. I have many questions about his movie, but one is if somebody has eyes that shoot lasers how does wearing a pair of sunglasses help? I’m giving this fun, exciting film a B- rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
