Fantastic Origins Film - Highly Underrated
Verified purchase
As a fan of the X Men franchise, I was disappointed with the first three films which lacked substance in places, however this film is completely different and much, much better.

Whilst the bar has been set low with 1,2 and 3, this is a much grittier and realistic approach to the origin story, with some excellent twists from the comics (Logan and Sabretooth are brothers), this adds an extra dimension to the story which stands out from the originals, as it is much more interesting to see the dynamic between characters and understand Wolverine's background. With an excellent cast, and brilliant acting from Jackman, Schreiber and others, this has become my favourite of the franchise and I have watched it multiple times, I would highly recommend it!

I liked the X-Men films and thought Hugh Jackman did a very good job as Wolverine so looked forward to his own vehicle.
The opening 10 mins showing the boy James Logan and his brother was interesting but the plot was all a bit tired. After fighting through the ages (Civil, WWI, WWII and Vietnam) James and his brother Victor join a 'special unit'. The unit oversteps the mark and Logan quits. Cue lovey bit until he's found and dragged into the Weapon-X program.
The plot is all a bit cliched but my major gripe, similar to the animated Hulk vs series, is the fight scenes. There are a few CGI moments which would be acceptable in a lesser budget movie (think Daredevil... which I quite liked) but should have been picked up during an edit but, worse than that, is the indestructability of Wolverine, Weapon XI and, to some degree, Sabretooth. I know it's one of Wolverine's powers but it was done pretty well in the X-Men movies. Here there just seems no danger. They're sliced, diced, shot, crushed, smashed etc and simply 'recover' to be repeated.
The love interest keeps reminding Wolverine he's a human not an animal so, at some point, you know he's going to go feral... which just seems as if he snarls a bit and then resorts to smashing, slicing and crushing again.
If you like brutal action over plot you'll like this more than I did.

Fairly standard X-Men romp
Verified purchase
We all know what to expect in a Wolverine movie and this doesn't disappoint. Government conspiracy, experimentation, lots of violence, the worst Deadpool ever!

Big jump in the type of violence from the other x-men films
Verified purchase
My 12 year old son & my husband loved it, fantasy violence I did not hear it but there is meant to be a bad word but then I did not sit and watch this all the way through. As a Mum I thought 'too much fighting' and not like the other x-men films where there is some fantasy violence where they all use their powers, but this seemed over the top fighting of everything that seemed to appear.. but again it was probably that I dislike violence and surprised this did such a jump. I certainly would not show this to anyone below 12.

Coukd have enjoyed it more if it had (at least English) subtitles.

Really, @Amazon? No subtitles??
The movie itself has some funny moments, but hey, if not a US English native speaker, guess what... You miss them...

best wolverine/ x-men movie
Verified purchase
Great movie. Blu-ray has astonishing visuals and sound compared to DVD. This film is clearly aimed at teens and adults who like a pop-corn movie. It ticks all the boxes and is the best X-men movie in my opinion. Some of the acting is a bit too staged and to be honest not as good as the other films, but the whole package seems to work better. Not the same feel as the other movies, there is less of a general overwhelming threat throughout the film and this allows some plot lines to gain more depth. I enjoyed this film a lot and did not expect to. Recommended highly if you like this genre.

A very poor movie in terms of writing. The CGI and action aren't much better.
