In 2009, X-Men fans were frustrated (if not downright pissed) when the half-hearted X-Men Origins: Wolverine hit theaters.  Boasting an impressive cast and a mountain of buzz, the film was panned by critics and fans alike, leaving much to be desired from the franchise's most lucrative member.

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan.  Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.  Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.

In an industry plagued with remakes and sequels, it is a rare occurrence to see something new and original. Granted Adam Green’s new film Frozenisn’t entirely new or original, it does take a stab at something a bit different, and for that I applaud him.
