Movie Review-Wolverine Origins

May 6, 2009

Why is a movie review on a cycling blog, you ask? Well, for one thing, it’s more than a cycling blog so I can write whatever I want, but for another, I have a lot in common with this movie. What do Wolverine and I have in common?


Other than devilish good looks, a  rock solid body, and animal instincts, we are both driven. While Logan is driven by betrayal, revenge, sibling rivalry, the murder of his girlfriend, and all sorts of crazy events that only happen in movies, I am driven by other motives. Raw meat at the finish line?  Hardware? Podium girls. Yeah, those things are nice. The desire to get stronger, faster, healthier, better… I think those are the true rewards.

Anyways, Colleen and I caught a late screening of the film last night in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Wolverine is my favorite X-Man, hands down. He doesn’t need magic tricks and fireballs shooting from his eyes or ice crystals from his hands to kill the bad guys, he just needs brute force and instinct, two qualities the Caveman style of racing are known for. If they didn’t call me Caveman, that might call me Wolverine. Who knows? Go see the movie, it’s awesome.
