Wolverine, with retractable spoons instead of retractable clawsThis was posted somewhere as an example of superheroes who didn’t make the cut. I don’t know; I think you could smack someone around with retractable spoons in your arms.

So I went and saw “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” on Saturday. They got some things right, and some things wrong. There was plenty of action, of course.  Some of the writing wasn’t the greatest—though the actors were obviously trying very hard to deliver their lousy lines well.  Deadpool had too few lines.  Part of the ending, specifically everything to do with “Weapon 11″, was neither done well nor in the comic books anywhere that I remember.  I thought Logan’s relationship with Kayla was reasonably well done.  So:  See this one at a matinee, and only if you like stuff blowing up.
