For a while I was keeping up with all the good movies and lately I've been slacking off a bit. I'm not into the technical aspects of films, just the entertainment value really. But I've been excited about "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" since I saw the preview a few months back.
I saw the film last night and was not disappointed. Though I have a friend who is a "movie guy" through and through and he was not as impressed by it.
Reviews are mixed, but the consensus is that comic book purists may be disappointed by the storyline.
I am not of that sort. The most I know about X-Men is what I gathered from my brother watching the cartoon on Saturday mornings when I was young and the previous three movies.
Apparently though, since Wolverine has done so well in the theater, there is already talk of a sequel.
Given the name of the film, with "Wolverine" preceded by a colon, I thought we'd be seeing back stories for some of the other prominent mutants. Sure, we see a little bit of a young Cyclops and Gambit (finally!), but what about Storm or Jean Grey?
Do you think we'll see the origins of any other mutants? What about another movie featuring all the X-Men?
