The X-Men movies have finally descended from "epic saga" to "farce," with a Wolverine prequel that sees him struggling against the banality of banality. Spoilers ahead.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not the worst movie I've seen lately - that honor probably belongs to Bad Channels - but it is a particularly awful type of bad movie. It's nearly joyless in its badness - unlike some Z-movies that revel in their badness, Wolverine thinks it's a great film. And it's all designed to set you up for action sequences, which - apart from one exception - are pretty dull.
