This weekend I saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It was so much better than I thought it would be! I do like super-hero movies, but only when they have a plot. It's hard for me to sit through a movie that is driven only by explosions, car chases and super heroes flying around killing people. To me, a good movie has to have a good plot. It has to have a story. If it has a story, go ahead and add the car chases and explosions, I'm all for getting the bad guys if it adds to a story line! Wolverine not only has a good story but it engages you and connects you to the characters. Even if you're like me and don't know the X-Men story at all. It feels like you are seeing a timeless, epic story being played out. In short: go see it!
