X Men Origins: Wolverine

The forth film in the X Men series is released, titled ‘X Men Origins: Wolverine’. Usually I am selective in watching English movies; to write a review on it is also a wild task. Since the new film belongs to the popular X Men category, we can’t neglect it simply. Hugh Jackman, who has done Wolverine character in the previous films is the hero here also.

The story of the film starts in the 1840’s. In the young age itself hero (Wolverine) gets the super human power to have an iron made extra elongation through his hands. He accidently happened to be the cause of his father’s murder. He and his elder brother escapes from their village and when they grew up they participates in the world wars for the Americans. When the Army Major forms a very special team who has got the super natural powers, they also got a chance to join the team. The difference in opinion caused the Wolverine to be got separated from them. The Major targets the hero most of the time. The former one is conducting negative experiments on the super natural powers. The hero finds him in the end and thus he took revenge on the Major as expected.

The story of the film as usual is unbelievable. The majority of the Hollywood films have got such an unnatural style. But their scripting and presentation of the film is good enough to attract the viewers. We won’t tolerate any super human scenes coming in the regional films, but we are ready to accept any of those in English. This is mainly due to the ultimate visual effects used in such movies. They won’t give time for us to re-think about a particular moment in the film. The scenes like the total disaster shown in the climax of ‘X Men Origins: Wolverine’ is one such example, but we can’t heard a single howling voice from the crowd which gives negative impact. When the hero joins a team, almost all of them have got extra powers identical to him. Anyway all such things are part of the game; I am ready to ignore the truthfulness in many sequences like that. If not, I will be like “odd men out” in the group.

Those who strictly watch Hollywood movies can watch ‘X Men Origins: Wolverine’ also.

Rating : 7 / 10
