X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE (wolverine: x-men zero) (2009 U.S.) D: GAVIN HOOD W: DAVID BENIOFF/SKIP WOODS P: JOHN PALERMO/LAUREN SHULER DONNER/RALPH WINTER/HUGH JACKMAN
After three quite entertaining X-MEN movies, they dropped this clanger. It`s the backstory for Wolverine (Producer Jackman). He and his bad guy brother (Liev Schreiber) grow-up as lupine mutants that are near indestructible, and seemingly ageless. Danny Huston is the real military villain experimenting with a substance called Adamantium (named after Adam Ant maybe?!?), and collecting and killing various mutants. Loaded with (quite often see-through) CGI overkill, it`s one of the most boring Marvel adaptations (Stan Lee was an Executive Producer, as was Richard Donner). With Will i am, Ryan Reynolds (as Deadpool), Lynn Collins, Kevin Durand, Dominic Monaghan, Taylor Kitsch, Julia Blake, Mike Dopud and Patrick Stewart popping out of nowhere at the end in a shoddy attempt at series continuity. Writer Woods directed THURSDAY. Things got back on track with X-MEN: FIRST CLASS.
