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.

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.

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.

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.

Wolverine is big, dumb fun, a popcorn movie if ever there was one. And it's probably the only movie this summer to feature a superhero whose most dazzling talent seems to be shuffling a deck of cards.
| Original Score: 3/4

There is no shame in being a crowd pleaser, and Jackman and Schreiber deliver the snarling, sibling goods and make the film thoroughly enjoyable, if not memorable.

Kevin Irwin - Stepping out of the shadows of his X-Men pals, Hugh Jackman's feral mutant gets his own back story - minus a true explanation of his glorious sideburns. It's a knowing foundation for franchise glory.

Wolverine is unapologetically nothing more than a big, loud, effects-driven summer action movie--and a whole lot of fun.

"Wolverine" has zip for depth, but since it never sold itself as such, who cares? This is the action movie the advertising campaign promised, and Hood comes through with plenty of scenes that satisfy on a visceral level.

As pure pulp entertainment, it works.

We're soon mired in a predictable tale of revenge, an escalating series of empty tragedies occurring to half-sketched characters that ultimately packs all the emotional resonance of a night on the Xbox.

I had a good time with this. Jackman makes it worthwhile. Not as good as the first two X-Men films, but better than the third. Sorry haters.

Scary as Hugh Jackman's vascular body may be, it's also perfectly appropriate as a visual extension of the weaponization of Wolverine.
