I saw X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE on opening, a matinee, which was the perfect remedy for my rainy, last day of spring break blues. I felt like I got what I wanted from the movie. Storyline wise, it filled in the blanks and at the same time, rightly, left a bit of Wolverine/Logan's life a mystery. Next time I watch X-men I or II, I'll be watching closely at scenes between Wolverine and Sabertooth and at the flashbacks of his adamantium infusion.
I don't particularly care to critique the movie, because I'm too taken with the franchise.
However, I will say that this reviewer, Stephen Whitty of NJ.com makes some good points.

BTW- How many people are disgusted about the leaked, unfinished bootleg circulating? I know it's hypocritical of me, that I believe in free downloaded music, but I hate unreleased movie bootlegs and downloads. Does anyone else feel the same?
