DVD Review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

The film that suffered arguably the highest profile pre-release leak in film history, but still managed to make a fairly impressive amount at the box office, X-Men Origins: Wolverine jumps back to before the recent trilogy as Hugh Jackman, in his now iconic role, discovers his abilities and struggles through the aftermath of mixing with army man William Stryker.

Sadly, even after work was completed, the CGI effects were still a step back from the last X-Men film, and with a plot that offers very little, X-Men Origins: Wolverine might be somewhat entertaining at times but on a whole is utterly forgettable.
