Michael H.'s rating of the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Even though I haven’t read the comics, I can tell that the makers of this have crammed together as many strands from the original comic’s histories as possible and strung them together on the vaguest and thinnest of plot strands, the results of which was going to be a failure, and with its serious tone never having a sense of messy silliness to it. No one would get a lot from this, X-Men comic fans or not.
