I love Hugh Jackman and our family LOVES “X-Men!”  In fact, we own all of the movies!  Hugh Jackman was awesome in this “X-Men” version all about Wolverine.  It was action packed and definitely one I would watch again.  There were some parts that were so intense that I was sitting on the edge of my seat!  I can’t wait for the next “X-Men Origins” movie!!
