The story is word for word from the comics, Wolverine volume 3 issues 50-55 the story line called "Evolution". This pretty much picks up right after Wolverine gets all of his memories back and is trying to piece his past together. Sabretooth has always been a large part of that past and this story brings their tension to a climax. Romulus is introduced in this story and I think he has been one of the better secondary villains introduced in the last 10 years. Yes, this is the same Romulus that founded Rome just a little bit of a different story. If you like this and want continue reading the exploits of Wolverine vs. Romulus read the Wolverine: Origins story line. That whole run by Daniel Way builds up to a great ending between the two and I hope that Marvel considers adding those stories to the Marvel Knights motion comics line.
Overall this was a word for word adaption of Jeph Loeb and Simone Bianchi's story. There are plenty of cameos from other Marvel characters like Rouge, Black Panther, Storm, Emma Frost, Cyclops, Wild Child and some of Alpha Flight. The voice actors did a great job, but I do feel they may have gone over the top with Storm. This story is probably best suited for a mature audience and again it is a motion comic.If you want a cartoon go watch Wolverine and the X-Men. Worth the watch for any comic and Wolverine fan.
With that out of the way this one was fun. The voice acting is actually pretty good. Well Wolverine is good, the rest are decent. They reuse some animation a few times too many but the episodic editing sort of explains that. Speaking of editing I wish they would cut out the intro and credits on these DVDs because they're unnecessary.
As for the story it's fun. I was surprised Jeph Leob wrote it. My only complaint is it left a lot of unanswered questions. It is a comic after all though and the special features sported some scenes from the sequel book so one can assume they plan on finishing it. While on the subject the interview with the creators was interesting and gave me a new respect for Leob I never had before.
I can't say how this plays when you've already read the comic as someone who hasn't it was enjoyable. The book and this film are the same price so it's up to you which you'd prefer. Personally I read a lot of comics so sometimes it's nice to "watch" one instead.
In a special feature documentary that is included on this DVD, Loeb even talks about how it was built to be two parts. So, if you are interested in the full tale story, do NOT buy this DVD. Pick up the book that has both parts. You can find it here: http://www.amazon.com/Wolverine-Sabretooth-Marvel-Hardcover/dp/078518385X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1403042779&sr=1-1&keywords=wolverine%2C+loeb
Also, please lay off Paul Cornell. He’s a strong writer, but these adaptions haven’t made that case. InHumans didn’t work. Logan’s ORIGINS def didn’t work.
How about some more stories like IRON MAN: Extremis? Or the SPIDER-MAN one. That was great. The Whedon X-MEN motion comics were solid.
I LOVE motion comics. Just not this one.
