    Fox News columnist out after 'Wolverine' review

    Fox News columnist Roger Friedman is out after posting a review of a leaked full-length work print of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." Fox News said Monday that the company's representatives and Friedman "mutually agreed to part ways immediately."

    Friedman had been an entertainment writer who has contributed to for 10 years. He wrote in his Fox 411 column Thursday that downloading the 20th Century Fox superhero prequel was "so much easier than going out in the rain" and that the movie "exceeds expectations at every turn."

    The early review of the film, which 20th Century Fox described as a "stolen, incomplete and early version," was later removed from the Web site Friday. Fox News and 20th Century Fox are both units of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

    The movie, which focuses on the beginnings of Hugh Jackman's clawed Marvel superhero Wolverine, is not scheduled for release until May 1, but the leaked version began appearing online last week. 20th Century Fox promised that the source of the film would be prosecuted and said the FBI and Motion Picture Association of America are investigating the leak.

    What the hell was he thinking?

    I know people illegally download movies but for a well respected reviewer to champion it is career suicide.

    He has to be nuts-there is no logic here! Good luck finding another job.
