X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells the origin story of Wolverine (Hugh Jackman). The film follows the story of a young Logan living in Canada with his girlfriend Kayla (Lynn Collins), but after she is brutally murdered by Logan's half brother, Victor (Liev Schreiber), Logan wants revenge. HIs former boss and U.S colonel, William Stryker (Danny Huston), offers him a chance at doing this, but it comes at a dangerous cost.
For me this is the only "bad" X-Men movie. When the majority of people look back over the X-Men series most will agree that they failed two movies: this and X-Men: The Last Stand. If you read my review then you'll know I didn't hate that movie, but this on the other hand is rubbish. It's the only X-Men movie that I thought absolutely failed. It's cheesy script, atrocious CGI and just dull/pointless premise is enough to put most fans to sleep. If only the movie had less screaming.
There's rarely a moment of decent CGI here in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. By some unfortunate mishap the CGI in the X-Men movies seems to have gotten worse and worse as more films were released (this is fixed once First Class comes along) and this is the worst example yet. Throughout all of the crappy special effects there is one that stands out as the absolute worst and this occurs during a fight between Gambit and Logan. I won't spoil what it is as it's a spoiler, but if you unfortunately have to sit through this movie then you will know the moment when it pops up. It's laughably bad.
The dialogue is overly cheesy and just not funny. For a series that begun with a realistic approach to the situation it's embarrassing to showcase such a terrible screenplay. Much like the CGI, there's many instances with dialogue so bad that it's laughable. Except when the intentionally funny dialogue comes along it really isn't funny. The scene where Wolverine is looking at his adamantium claws for the first time is possibly the dumbest, most out of character moment in the entire X-Men film series.
The whole premise of the film is dumb and pointless. There's no real need to tell the origin story of Wolverine because part of the mystery that exists with his character is that he can't remember his past. X-Men Origins not only explains what happens, but is mostly unfaithful to the comics while doing so. I haven't even touched on the point that half of this movie is dumb and doesn't play into the overall story in the least bit.
To sum up, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the only real terrible X-Men movie with a cheesy, unintentionally hilarious script, absolutely terrible special effects and a premise that's dumb, unfaithful and pointless.
