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

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.

The first X-Men film I didn't absolutely love.

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.

To quote Spinal Tap, 'It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.' Wolverine rarely threatens to cross that line into clever, instead remaining fairly stupid, mostly formless and endlessly silly.

I have been powerfully impressed by film versions of Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, Iron Man and the Iron Giant. I wouldn't even walk across the street to meet Wolverine.

In terms of tone and content, Wolverine is a nearer match to Daredevil than Iron Man, but its box office gross will undoubtedly be closer to the latter.

Summer's first tent-pole flick is a dulled outing. It may assuage the die-hard fan, but it's doggedly routine.

Hugh Jackman's action-filled spinoff delivers on the brawn but not the soul of the "X-Men" franchise that spawned it.

We get something more akin to Jim Henson's Mutant Babies, with some Highlander touches thrown in for good measure.

A chaotic headbanger, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is saved from pure flat-footed blockbuster franchise adequacy by six things, three of them on Hugh Jackman's left hand, three on his right.

The direction, by Gavin Hood is a case study in mismanagement: of anger, rage, demonic howls that grow into howlers, Olympian camera angles and, above all else, the mismanagement of an unusually personable star.

Wolverine doesn't hold a candle to the X-Men trilogy and is a big step back for the franchise in general.

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.

If you're not a die-hard X-Men comic-book fan, you're going to be lost, and if you are a die-hard X-Men comic book fan, you're going to be disappointed.

If you've never seen an X-Men film you will enjoy Wolverine. If you are familiar with the X-Men franchise then go for the action, special effects and Hugh Jackman.

Even with the bloated budget of an X-Men, less can be more. The character-driven Iron Man is a perfect example of how the hero, rather than a mega-ton of TNT, is the one who's truly dynamite.
