Day 365

movie: X-Men Origins:Wolverine
starring: Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber
genre: Sci-Fi, Action,
year: 2009
format: DVD

plot: We learn about Wolverine's past, from his discovering his ability, to learning he has a brother, to how he was given the adamantium skeleton. Which he uses to destroy the military based corporation that has been killing mutants for their abilities.

Based on the Marvel comics. Film number  4 in the X-Men franchise, and film 1 in the Wolverine sub-series.

I think the character of Wolverine is so loved because he's the sort of character that is more human then human but is still superhuman.
This film, like a lot of superhero stories, is based on the Frankenstein factor.  Experiments gone wrong, or totally successful depending on your point of view.

This is Wolverine's story, but it's also Sabretooth's as well.  I would love to see Schreiber have his own film in the series.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Everyone has a dark and light side to them. Everyone is capable of letting go of the controlled "human side",  it's how you proceed towards the more primal side that defines your character. If you're willing to work with your more natural instincts or fight against it, thus creating a monstrous part of yourself.
