Description: A normal life isn’t just meant to be for the wild Wolverine. Seeking vengeance for the death of his loved one, he becomes the experimented Weapon X.
Review: The story was generally taken from the comic series X-Men that were originally created by Stan Lee. This film shows the complex relationship of James Howlett (Hugh Jackman), latter on known as Logan/ Wolverine, to Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber), who is latter known as Sabretooth.
The way the movie portrayed the two brothers growing up was rather complex. Starting from when they were little, and then skipping from one war to another. The film in actuality did not show any genuine brotherly love. To many, their relationship was typically bound by a barrage of battles and wars rather than care and love itself.
After 200 years of fighting, it would typically come into mind that Wolverine would be a battle hardened warrior stripped of emotions or something like that. But showing sympathy for those he doesn’t know, and falling in love, the violent Wolverine that most knew isn’t that violent at all.
In the film we can find some inconsistencies from the original comic book story. For example, the reason for Wolverine’s amnesia was originally a result of suppression and repression, rather than an adamantium bullet to the head. Aside from this Victor’s death in the comic book was by decapitation by the hands of his brother, but this did not happen in the film. The vast changes in the film made a lot of diehard fans hate the film, saying it was doing injustice to the original characters and story.
