X-men Origins - WolverineDVD - 2009
"Hood and Jackman bring depth to a comic-book tale of anti-heroes with anger issues."--USA Today

William Stryker: Mutants. I don't hate them, I just know what they can do. You don't realize this, but we are at war. I took an oath: Protect this country. My name is William Stryker, and I am not a monster. I am simply a patriot.

It is an awesome movie, and it partially introduces Wade Wilson (a.k.a Deadpool)
A look at Wolverine's early life, in particular his time with the government squad Weapon and the impact it will have on his later years.
From this movie, 3rd in the series of X-men movies, we finally understand who Wolverine is, where he came from, how he got there and how all the "others" come to be in the series of X-men.
Brilliant portrayal by Jackman who plays the brooding loner, haunted by who he is, tied to family (brother) and yet not quite free enough to be who he is.... a mutant.
Sub-plot there is a love story, family ties and a new beginning for all
Other: If you don't mind a bit of language and lot of slasher/cut-em-up violence, it is a very good Marvel Movie.
