Straight off the bat: this movie features more shots of muscle-bound men looking up at the camera and yelling "RAAWWWRGH!" than any other I can remember. It's the shoutiest film of the year.

I haven't been this disappointed by a film since the new Indiana Jones.

Unfortunately, the special effects vary from impressive to embarrassing, and some additional trimming at the story level might have helped elevate the metallurgical rating to steel status.

It is not as good as the second X-Men film but it is on par with the first and an improvement over the third.

Despite the film's necessarily lengthy exposition, Wolverine's back-story seems thinner and less compelling than the Logan-heavy, previous X-Men films had hinted at.

You won't be upset you saw it, you'll have some fun, you'll see Wolvie beat the living hell out of a helicopter.

It's just too bad a movie sharp enough to rip through flesh and helicopter blades and nuclear-reactor smokestack walls has to feel so disappointingly dull.

While Wolverine contains several nice fight scenes and a couple of enjoyable action sequences, one can't help but feel that it thoroughly wastes Jackman.

Reported to be the one thing missing in-part from the leaked workprint, sadly many of the special effects in X-Men Origins: Wolverine are somewhat sub-standard.

The serious tone established by Bryan Singer in 2000's X-Men is almost completely obliterated, reducing the film to the level of any another by-the-numbers franchise entry.

Hey, it won't win any awards but it does the trick...

Packed with claw-shredding action and adventure, the film more or less delivers what it promises. The problem lies with what it promises.

It's funny how much I'll forgive just to watch Jackman play this raging mutant again.

Though well-choreographed, the action sequences simply don't look as good as one would expect from a tent-pole summer release.

Hugh Jackman's animal magnetism is palpable in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." He's more sexy than he has ever been in the past X-Men films, and the movie shows him in bizarre bromance relationships with other mutant freaks as well as a very intimate and most

Is there anything to enjoy in X-men Origins: Wolverine? Sure. Some of the fights are cool. But for every solid moment there is an equivalent of pure suck.
