Critic Review - At the Movies

Wolverine's backstory was good stuff -- but after the falling out with Schreiber, the story loses its center and it gets wobbly.

The backstory is the worst aspect of the film, leaving it empty. Unless the comics covered this, what was the story behind the two fathers? Why did Sabertooth turn so dark, when he seemed to be the stable older brother protecting his sibling. He didn't kill his own father. It's all very bad! Shame on you for thinking this is good stuff.

Uhmm.. Hello... people, ... it is supposed to leave you guessing for the next frickin movie.
There are enough subtle hints.
Like, the Dad is their dad.. he probably didn't die.. he probably just took a second to heal. And Saber probably had a good reason for running. Some dark reason maybe... I saw hints at something to come and enjoyed the complications and confusion of that moment.

Um hello people, like, ya know, you had to pretty much guess all of that. There are no hints, you simply made up a bunch of crap, like people, ya know.

You're made of ignorance.

How high are you exactly? You are out of your mind and no one can possibly take you seriously.

Shame on you all for calling him saber, never in this movie does it mention sabertooth, as sabertooth was originally meant to be wolverines father there is no reason the father lied and Vic is not in fact sabertooth at all.

I thought the same. But in the comics there are no relation between sabertooth and wolverine.
