X-Men Origins: Wolverine by Gavin Hood, 2009 (PG-13)
with Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine, Scoop), Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds (Fireflies in the Garden, Buried), Danny Huston (Hitchcock, You Don't Know Jack, Robin Hood, The Conspirator), Lynn Collins, Taylor Kitsch (The Bang Bang Club), will.i.am, Dominic Monaghan (Lost), Daniel Henney, Julia Blake, Max Cullen, Kevin Durand (Cosmopolis), Scott Adkins (Zero Dark Thirty), Tim Pocock, William Fichtner
This action-packed prequel to the popular X-Men films explores Marvel Comics character Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) past and the events that influenced the mutant before the Weapon X program bonded his skeleton with the powerfully strong metal alloy adamantium. After the death of his girlfriend, Wolverine seeks vengeance against supervillain Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber).
Ah, the missing piece of the puzzle, which makes the trilogy of X-Men make sense. What happened to Logan, that made him loose his memory and get that spectacular metal structure. Perhaps I lost my memory, but that makes "The Wolverine" completely illogical, since there is no loss of memory, did he retrieve it in X-Men trilogy. I guess I have to watch it again... So, aside from explaining a few facts about Logan's past, the movie isn't that interesting, but if you are an X-Men fan, definitely, you have to see it.
