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.

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.

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.

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.

For pure stupidity, nothing tops the scene in which a mutant falls at a descending rate so as to prolong the showing off of its long-since unimpressive superpower.

while the film does feature plenty of action and special effects, it doesn't come close to being anywhere as good as either of the first two films in the X-Men franchise.

An entertaining opening cannot sustain a murkily-plotted film that relies more on convention and contrivance than character development.

A pretty darn good, worthy prequel.

The outlines of what this origin prequel might have been is the major takeaway but the physicality and technical artistry makes it more than entirely superficial.

The filmmakers couldn't decide what to cut out, so they threw everything into the pot and hoped for the best. The results are half interesting, but half filler.

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.

Such a blandly predictable sci-fi blockbuster that one can focus on different parts of Hugh Jackman's extraordinary physique without fear of losing out on a single plot point.

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

It's neither a clever comic-book flick nor an explosive summer blockbuster above the most pedestrian computer-generated level of destruction.

never quite good or original enough to justify itself beyond an obvious extension of a money-making franchise that won't quit as long as the cash registers keep clanging

Wolverine in need of honing.

As pure pulp entertainment, it works.

If, in real time, the dull X-Men Origins prequel actually were the first X-Men film produced, it might have been the last.
