On "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"

From The Dispatch:
But then it falls into the same trap that the third "X-Men" film fell into; it tries to cram too many fan favorite characters into too short a running time, so that none of them really gets any kind of decent treatment. No one really has any development beyond Wolverine, and quite honestly his character just isn't interesting enough to carry an entire film without the other X-Men to balance it out. It's all Wolverine all the time, and, frankly, it's pretty dull. There's plenty of brawn and brute force to go around of course, but it lacks the heart and soul that distinguished the franchise. And without that, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" is just another dime a dozen comic book flick.
