Re: What was wrong with the current trilogy?
I liked the first few scenes in the first movie where Wolverine was fighting in a bar (which even made me forgive what they had already done to Rogue by that point).
The rest was garbage.
Moment I knew it was in trouble: Wolverine is sent through the windshield of his truck and is actually knocked unconscious and staggers to his feet confused.
The real Wolvie wouldn't have been fazed and would have smelled Sabretooth well before he got ambushed and one-shot KO'd (for the second time in the scene), this time long enough to be rescued and taken back to the Manor. And it just went downhill from there.
That is the X-Men movies in a nutshell. Change or ignore characters just to push the movies along. Had the actual plot been even remotely interesting I might've forgiven it but in none of the movies did the end ever justify the means. Horribly written and horribly realized.
