X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
:  Excellent movie!  To be quite truthful, I wasn't interested when I first heard this film was going to be a prequel.  I enjoyed the third X-Men film, "X-Men: The Last Stand", and really wanted to see a Wolverine story move from that point.  Hugh Jackman really sold this for me.  If anyone else had tried to play Wolverine I doubt if I'd have been so eager to watch it.  I think at this point, NO ONE is going to be able to play Wolverine like Hugh Jackman.  He's about as key to this character as Clint Eastwood to Dirty Harry, or Paul Hogan to Crocodile Dundee.



    I was more than pleasantly surprised when I found this to be a well-written movie with incredible, non-stop action.  It ties pretty well into the continuity of the X-Men films.  It answers a lot of questions that were raised in the previous X-Men films.

I'm going to jump ahead a bit, because you just HAVE to see this movie, and I'm not going to give away everything.  I'm really just telling you key points about Wolverine's history that I think are important to touch on and won't spoil the movie.
