Review: 3.5/5

I went to the cinema with high anticipation of watching a action-packed movie (which did not disappoint), but left feeling that the character development is not as detailed as i thought it could be.

The adaption of the childhood of Logan in the movie is also quite different from the comic version of the X-men where you see Logan running away together with Victor (Sabretooth) did not actually happen.

But the movie adaption of the X-men comics usually does not stay absolutely true or follows the comic version completely.

Anyway, i am not here to correct that but rather review the movie itself. If you are interested to learn more about Wolverine's history, you can read it here. You can also learn more about Sabretooth history here.

The focus of this movie concentrates around the history of Logan's past, present and leave you thinking of the future, the development of other characters are a bit shallow.

Some of the other characters that took on supporting roles in the Wolverine movie are Emma Frost, Deadpool, Silverfox, Bolt, Agent Zero and John Wraith. The appearance of Emma Frost in the Wolverine movie is a bit strange and is hard to imagine her involvement in Wolverine's history.

The movie sometimes leaves me wondering if the movie is trying too much to throw in as many characters that was missed out in the three X-men movies? However, i must comment that the effects of the fight scenes are quite well done and comparable with other action-packed movies as well.

In summary, the movie is quite enjoyable if you ignore the inaccuracies of the real history of Wolverine in the comics, and is rather easy to follow even with no X-men background knowledge. Click here to start viewing some of the trailers ...

Plot Summary:

As shown in the first 2 X-men movies, they briefly mentioned about Logan's past. It is assumed in this movie that we will learn more about his secret history before the Weapon X project.

For those who are not familiar with the Weapon X program, it is actually a government project conducted by the Canadian government. Captured mutants are mostly used in the experiment to enhance their super abilities and also mutate humans. The Weapon X project has produced familiar characters such as Wolverine, Deadpool, Sabretooth and so on.

In the movie, Wolverine seeks revenge for the death of his girlfriend against Sabretooth also known as Victor Creed and which was the main driving motivation for accepting to be part of the Weapon X program offered by William Stryker (not the same actor that acted in the X-men 3 movie). The "X" is a Roman numeral that also means 10. In other words, the Weapon X has been tested on 9 subjects with no success until Wolverine.

So it is no surprise to see Sabretooth being cast as one of the main villains in this much anticipated movie. You will also get a chance to explore and learn more about the relationship between Wolverine and Sabretooth himself. In the Wolverine movie, you will also catch appearances of Gambit who is playing one of the supporting roles in this movie. There are a couple of action scenes between Gambit and Wolverine, before they decided to help each other.

My advice is DO NOT leave the cinema early because there're more after the movie credits.

Many questions have also been asked at Yahoo! Answers as to whether there will be a 4th X-men movie? Based on sources, there will not be one at least for now! This will be a big disappointment for X-men fans including myself. But you never know what will happen right? After all, X-men characters never really actually dies (at least most I guess).stick out tongue face
