It’s Far From X-cruciating, but “Wolverine” Lacks Claws

Body: 

"I'm good at what I do. And what I do isn't very nice."

Yet it's not particularly nasty, either, is it, Wolverine? Or is it James Howlett? Weapon X? Logan? Hugh? Whatever you call yourself, the terrible memories you spent the first two X-Men movies trying to uncover seem a little anticlimactic, and not a little underwhelming compared to your angst over them, especially if all we have to judge on is X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the latest in the Fox franchise of X-movies. Don't get me wrong, it didn't bore me. It just didn't impress me.
