X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Whoah. I didn't expect to like this as much as I did, and I have to admit it's fucking awesome! Hugh Jackman was really fantastic, it's his best performance, exceeded only by his role in the Fountain. The action is directed and choreographed so well and so splendidly that it eases its way into the film beautifully. The screenplay is really good and it's never disappointing. In the workprint I watched, there were about four scenes (including the final battle) which didn't have special effects, but I can tell that once added this is going to look absolutely phenomenal. And if it doesn't get a nod for visual effects or cinematography I will be wondering why the hell not. 8/10
