X-Men Origins: Wolverine Film Review
The CGI in the original X-Men film was pretty darn good. Now, considering X-Men Origins came much later, you would think the CGI would be much better, right? Well, if you haven't seen this one yet and are expecting stunning visuals, you're going to be disappointed. However, the action and the acting are good and sometimes even thoroughly convincing.
Speaking of acting, Ryan Reynolds does an amazing job considering the bulk of his scenes have his mouth sewn shut. He's playing none other than Deadpool, also known as The Merc with a Mouth, and he can't speak after the introduction and raid scenes.
Another problem is the fact that Gambit is introduced. Why, you ask? Because this is a prequel and Gambit is not seen or even mentioned in any of the other X-Men films. He seemed like a cool character, though, and even played by a good actor. But why leave us wondering what happened to him after he ran off on his own?
In conclusion, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a good concept, almost like a present, but wrapped in ugly paper and given to a not-especially-liked relative. When you are having your next X-Men marathon, pretend this one was never made.
