  1. From Steve Fritz’s “DVD Review: The Three Faces of Wolverine,” regarding “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”:

    “The main problem here is the script is just an unbelievable mess. It tries to compress Logan’s 35-year history into one compact film. When all is said and done, it’s just plain to unbelievable that Logan is, quite frankly, such a dumb putz.” ########## “On the other hand, Logan’s sufferings throughout this film would rival Job. Jackman also just feels more and more disinterested as the film continues.”

    I absolutely agree with the first part of Fritz’s statement quoted above. The script WAS an unbelievable mess, and I did feel that the Logan in this movie was a “dumb putz.” As I had feared with every press release announcing yet another actor cast to play yet another mutant in this bloated film, I felt that Jackman’s Logan wound up being upstaged in his OWN movie.

    However, I disagree that Jackman feels more and more disinterested as the film continues. No, I felt he sincerely projected the character and remained engaged all the way through…as a manipulated, dumb putz! Maybe, that’s at the core of why I hate this movie…I’ve never imagined Logan as dumb.
