"What the French toast did I just watch? I mean, really what in the hell did I just watch? This movie was dangerously close to appearing on my "Lowering IQ" movie list. The producers knew they could put out a steaming one and the kids would flock to it. Beware Fox Studios people have been burned. Your sequel might flop because of this one. Who am I kidding? The same crowd will flock to it again."

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

“Was an origin film for Wolverine absolutely necessary? Considering that so much of the screentime was occupied by him and his backstory in X-Men and X2, this just feels redundant. It doesn’t help that everything is surrounded by the most cliché ridden storyline imaginable. There’s not one, not two, hell, not even three, but at least five shots of Wolverine screaming “NOOOO!” towards the heavens. Oi vey, how the once mighty superhero franchise has fallen. The cast gives it their all, but there’s not much that they can do with the material. Leiv Schreiber tries to inject some menace and a sense of (demented) fun into his portrayal of Sabretooth, but he can’t rise above the poor costuming and makeup. Lynn Collins looks like she’s been bronzed and dyed to look like a Native Amer” read more

“Being a big Marvel's fan it's impossible for me not to watch a super hero movie especially when it's part of the x-men history. After Batman, X-Men is probably the smartest super hero movie I've seen and Wolverine is the main character. With a huge cast and a huge history is definitely another part from the story. The plot is about Logan's life and how he handles his 'powers' and how he gets them from his childhood until being an adult.

It has nothing to do with X-Men plot/history besides some small facts and details during the movie but the action scenes are breath taking, and I can picture each of them on the video game plus it's a definitely interesting story. They did and excellent job and I can't wait for the other characters bio to come.” read more

Worst Movies of 2009... (29 movies items)

"I wanted to like this flick. Truly, I did. Hugh Jackman is an awesome Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool is a great casting decision. I like the X-Men franchise. I like action movies. Outlook was looking pretty positive until I actually watched this train wreck. It's difficult to outline what's wrong with this film, as it's pretty much everything. Most of the acting is woeful, dialogue is terrible, zero character development, so many unbelievable moments, poorly-constructed narrative, and so "

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

“ITS A FUCKING GOOD, KICK ASS MOVIE!

I THINK THAT THE DIRECTOR DID A AWESOME JOB WITH THE MOVIE, AND SOME PARTS REALLY REVEAL THE COMIC BOOK, FOR EXAMPLE THE FIRST PART WERE LOGAN KILLED HIS FATHER. THE MOVIE WAS REALLY ENTERTAINING FROM THE BEGINING AND WAS MORE THAN WHAT I EXPECTED IT TO BE.THE CASTING WAS DONE PRETTY GOOD TO. THEY DID A AWESOME JOB. YEAH. IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE GET YOUR ASS UP AND WATCH IT.” read more

It wasn't THAT bad

“Okay so it wasn't the greatest movie, or even greatest comic book to movie adaptation thingy. But it's far from the worst. And I wasn't bored so that's a plus. Most of it was really cheesy and lame but this is still a far cry from the blue and yellow tights, which I had secretly hoped would have made an appearance.

I've pretty much been waiting for this movie to come out ever since I read the Origin comic, which says alot considering I rarely read American comics. I remember reading back then that a motivation the writer had for making that particular comic when he did was because he wanted the comic book version to explain Wolverine's back story as a opposed to a movie. I might (most probably) be remembering wrong but I like to think it went something like that. I'm thinking t” read more

I'm gonna cut your God damn head off.

“After a few months of anticipation (more than any of the X-Men movies) i finally got a chance to see this last night; and honestly wasn't that disappointed. Most of the things that did bring me down were wardrobe choices I didn't agree with (project 11's in particular) and certain characters still not making their way into the film series. Even though, I was looking forward to two characters in particular to make their first appearance; Deadpool and Gambit. Both characters had a decent roll in the film, and if you think deadpool wasn't seen enough (almost like the death of Darth Maul in Star Wars episode 1) stay past the credits for a usual marvel surprise clip. Though many people knew Wolverine's past going into this film, things still had to be explained throughout the movie for everyone” read more

Review of the theatrical cut... It still sucks!

“"Become the animal. Embrace the other side."

Let's face it: we pay to see summer movies for the explosions, the fight scenes and the action in general. They aren't required to engage us on a cerebral level; they merely offer an abundance of action during which we're required to suspend our disbelief. X-Men Origins: Wolverine, however, is definitive proof that a plateful of action is not enough to create a satisfying summer movie. For a film to attain the status of an excellent popcorn-munching cinematic experience, it's required to pay at least some attention to narrative coherence and character arcs, not to mention the action has to occur in an actual context. In Wolverine, the action sequences just...happen. To arrive at an action sequence, one has to suffer through badly-paced” read more

Watchable but disappointing on further reflection

“Performance-wise, I have no complaints - the actors all did a good job. I especially liked Liev Schrieber as Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth).

With a running time of less than two hours, Wolverine moves at a fast enough pace to keep you entertained but it's too short to be totally entertaining because of a number of glaring problems.

In my limited knowledge of the X-Men mythology I've always thought of Logan as the reluctant hero who prefers to be alone because of his violent nature and the terrible things he's done in the past. Sadly, this movie barely delves into the bad things that Logan has done. And for an origins story it's unforgivable that the writers skim over so much of his personal history.

Part of the reason is that character development takes a back ” read more

Review of the workprint... It ain't good...

“WARNING: This review may contain very minor spoilers.

Please note that this is a review of the illegal Wolverine workprint version which was leaked online at the beginning of April. It's understandable that people may find my views of this flick irrelevant as I haven't yet viewed the final cut, and some believe I have no right to judge this incomplete cut. Au contraire, my friends, as the official running time has been released and it's exactly the same length as the workprint version. Interestingly, Fox tried to cover their blunder (i.e. the film leaking online) by claiming 14 minutes were missing from the workprint. Curiously, their story soon changed to something totally different: 10 minutes are missing from the workprint, and these 10 new minutes have been inserted into the ” read more
