Disappointed of the fact that it's a Wolverine movie. I expected this to be much better in the storyline of the character. Logan is a very interesting figure and definitely deserves a better origin. My Score: 62%

Pretty sure we've already seen this.

Jackman's and Schreiber's great portrayals cannot save this otherwise muddled, dull and poorly made superhero spinoff.

Good campy fun, with the ever watchable huge jacked man, and an outstanding performance by Liev.

This movie is awful. Boring, stupid and non sensical

One of the worst movies ever made and a disgrace to the x-men franchise.

Not a great movie, but having watched all of these in the last couple of days I think its better than most people give it credit for, and definitely better than The Wolverine.

Huge Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine in Wolverine Origins. The movie starts off right from his childhood where is Jimmy and he first discovers his ability to use his power ejecting his bones from his hands as claws. Because of rejuvenation powers he is able to live a longtime, and he and his friend Victor Creed (Liv Schreiber) go through many hard times and wars together. When Creed starts going berserk and has a thirst for violence and Jimmy decides to leave the team.

Several years later Creed is on a rampage killing all members of the team including his romantic interest. He teams up with General Stryker to give him the adamantine structure that Wolverine is infamous for. He spends the rest of the film trying to get revenge on Stryker and Creed. Along the way, he comes across Gambit, the Blob, and a few other mutants. He learns Stryker is collecting mutants to try and harness their powers.

Wolverine Origins is a film that focuses too much on action and does not have enough story to go with it. None of the action scenes are bad, but they don't particularly stand out either. The film does not seem to take much regard to other movies in the franchise either. We have a Deadpool villain that is able to absorb other people's powers. The movie does not tie loose ends too well and does not even connect the dots for how Wolverine joined the X-Men. Origins had potential, but mostly falls flat on its face.

The critics say too much action but I like when there is too much action it's enjoyable

If you're not up on your Marvel fanboy facts, then this is only going to come across as dumb-ass popcorn fodder. No effort is made to pander to a mainstream audience, and no explanations are given for the myriad of shiny mutants that get thrown at the screen in a mountain of surprisingly poor cgi. The paper thin plot gets discarded for the final act, which is just an excuse to see lots of big explosions and see how many references they can squeeze in to the comics/films/cartoons/whatever.

Having said that, someone gave the script a fancy pants polish, because it bristles with some corking one-liners, and some genuine laugh-out-loud moments. It's just a shame the sheer preposterousness of much of the action is even funnier. But at least you get to see Hugh Jackman's arse, which is almost worth an extra point of its own. A letdown. Er... the film, that is...
