Day Seventeen: A movie that disappointed you the most
X-Men Origins: Wolverine set up out Logan's early life. How he grew up, first found out about his mutant powers, who he made friends with, eventually leading up to the amnesia ridden mutant we knew in the X-Men movies. Along the way there was Sabertooth, Deadpool, a young Cyclops, Gambit, The Blob, William Stryker. The whole gang. It was suppose to be so wonderful.
Well it wasn't. It wasn't even kinda wonderful. The CGI for Wolverines claws was strangely terrible even though it was great in the X-Men movies, a lot of the acting wasn't too great at times, and it was like they didn't even read the characters back stories. Logans' was generally right, but Deadpool and Gambits? So wrong. It's like they took the wonderful character Gambit was and watered him down until he was a boring blob of nothing. And Deadpool? Definitely one of the best characters was destroyed. The Deadpool everyone knew and loved was a psychotic mercenary who was incapable of dying because of a healing mutation who occasionally broke the 4th wall and talked directly to the reader. Well Ryan Reynolds did great as early Deadpool, before all that stuff set into place. Then they turned him into Weapon X and destroyed him, he no longer had the flamboyant and enthusiastic personality where he'd sometimes shoot himself in the head just because he knew he couldn't die. It was just.. sad. The movie ended and I just sat in the theater, surrounded by a bubble of disappointment and crushed childhood.
