I saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine this weekend with my wife. This movie is getting mixed reviews and I understand why. But I really liked it.

First off, Hugh Jackman is amazing as Wolverine. Admittedly, he is not as mean, gritty, and burly as I picture Wolverine from the comics. Nonetheless, he plays the role so well. He is, without doubt, the highlight and strength of the movie.

Like I said, I liked the movie. Now maybe that’s because I was just happy to get out of the house. I think my problems with it came out of the fact that I tended to look it as an X-Men movie–and judged it as such. But if I looked as it as a movie about Wolverine, it was much better.

I do have to be honest, this was my least favorite in the X-Men series. Still, it was WELL-WORTH the price of admission to see Jackman’s rendition of the character on the big screen.

Wolverine mutated my boring life for 2 hours and I enjoyed every minute of it.
