I honestly don't see why this movie got only 37% on Rotten Tomatoes. Hugh Jackman was (of course) really good as Wolverine and the plot contained some twists I definitely did not see coming. I have to admit, though, sometimes the execution was a bit awkward and the cast a bit too jumbled. It was very entertaining and interesting to learn about Wolverine's past, and I'd watch it again. I hope Marvel makes an 'X-Men Origins: Mystique'; that would be so cool.
Good movie. I don't like what they did with dead pool. They should have just done that with someone else. I just ignore it, but it is still a good super hero movie.
To me, this is by FAR the best of the X-Men series. I've seen all except for Apocalypse, and I love getting to know Wolverine's backstory.
While it's definitely disappointing, it's not quite as bad as its reputation suggests. The idea of giving the back story to the most popular X-Man is sound, but the execution is a little wobbly. It's a movie that tries to do too much and it's not very sure of how to do it. It leans heavily on CGI and there are some questionable casting choices, like Ryan Reynolds (the blandest actor working today) as Deadpool, Taylor Kitsch as Gambit, and Wil.I.Am. (it hurts me to type that) as somebody. The heart of the film is the relationship/rivalry between Wolverine and Sabretooth, played with gleeful venom by Liev Schreiber. There are plenty of oh I see now moments: That's how he got his claws! That's why he has no memory! That's why his sideburns are so long! There are some good fight scenes and, hey it's not as bad as "X-Men: The Last Stand." David Benioff, currently writer/producer on "Game of Thrones," worked on the screenplay and wanted to go darker, but these movies always have to be PG-13. "The Wolverine" was a far more successful Wolverine solo joint.
DIDn't care for it, was a dissaponting. The Wolverine in japan was better film.
I’ve seen worse action films, and there are some ok moments but overall this is pretty lame. There are just far too many “yeah, but why…” moments–not to mention, how the hell did that dude fit those swords in his arms?
I thunk it was cool, but very dumb in the end, I still can't get over that wade Wilson turns into weapon 11 and in turn gets decapitated!!!!!!! All in all a good movie, by far the best so far
Ok plot. very good action scenes and everyones favorite X-Man.
It had more potential than was carried out. The movies version of Wolverine is the only version of the character that I can tolerate, but this one, which messes with previous movie continuity and works around with some of the material from the Origins miniseries, comes up a bit short, particularly in the depiction of Deadpool.
This was much more interesting than I expected. I was not following all the x-men movies, but I could understand most of the original background. It made me feel like watching other x-men movies.
This movie made deadpool a freakin' zombie Baraka (from mortal combat)
I mean, Seriously.
He was the best anti-hero in the comics.
While I found this movie to have some pretty awesome special effects, and a good plot, it still could've been done a bit better. I would recommend this to fans of science fiction as well as to fans of the other X-Men movies.
It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.” B+ DVD
This movies explains the origins of Wolverine, why he is the way he is, how he got there and where he came from.
Hugh Jackman goes to physical extremes to get his body into shape to play a role that he loves to do.
Im not a comic book fan, but this movie was pretty great. much better than all the x-men movies
