I just tonight saw the X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and for the most part, I’m pretty happy with it. It was an awesome film with a very cool storyline and fantastic effects. I also appreciated the introduction of all the new characters.
On the way home, though, I was filling Nicole in on all the plot points and flaws that were in the film, when comparing the storyline to the comics. Additionally, I described for her the complete origin story, when James Howlett was a sickly boy in Alberta to growing up in British Columbia incognito.
“Hmm…” she said after a silence. “This must be what it feels like for a history expert to watch a film about the World Wars.”
