Not Even Shiny, Sharp Claws Can Stop These Lukewarm Reviews For “Wolverine”
One has to feel badly for Hugh Jackman. He genuinely seems like a swell guy with a fairly hot wife and a nice little family. Unfortunately, it seems like critics aren’t a big fan of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. It’s holding steady at a 33% cream of the crop clip at Rotten Tomatoes and even the geeked out fanboys that watched the leaked version aren’t happy with the finished product. Almost every review, even the better ones, rip the weak plot and complain about the poor special effects. Most reviews are nice enough to Jackman and almost all of them dig Liev Schrieber as the villain.
What has to be done for Marvel Studios to get the rights back to the “X-Men” characters? It is obvious that Fox has no flipping idea what to do with these movies and they are just pissing all over a pretty cool comic book legacy. Not that I ever read those silly little books…well, maybe a few, when I was really young…okay, I picked up a few while I was in college out of curiousity…whatever, I have a monthly subscription to nine comics, big deal.
Cinematically Correct note/question: Who wins in a fight, Wolverine or the Rabbit of Caerbannog? No, Wolverine does not get to use the Holy Hand Grenade.
