like the title says, the "origin story" of wolverine.....no further comment
i admire liev schreiber's nose. that's about all the positive things i have to say about this movie. i only had a couple of weapon X comic books, and i read them *cough, hack* twenty odd years ago, but i can tell you this was not only incorrect, but a PG version. wait. PG-13 because of 1 distant bare ass. if i was a contemporary 12 year old i might have enjoyed this film. and, as the esteemed judge marilyn milian of people's court fame would say, " if i had two wheels i'd be a bicycle"
the music was totally outrageous in this movie too. it was like michael bay, jerry bruckheimer style, but without the outrageous moments. there were outrageous moments, but this super dramatic, over orchestration would come on when things were quiet. like after the girlfriend dies and wolverine is shouting to the heavens above. yes. the old overhead shot of a man holding his dead love shouting into the air. mostly used as a joke nowadays. total for serious in this movie.
ooh. i thought of another positive then negative thing. i like how you can tell some actors are comic dorks i.e dominic monaghan who had all of two lines before he died, but then i think 'did he read the script?' would a person outweigh the inaccuracies and stupidity just to play a certain character? hmmmmm.
that's all that pops out of my brain on this one.
