I also never liked that they didn't show Logan as a man who has extensive martial arts skills.
This is a problem that extends to the comics as well. Most writers seem to willfully forget that Wolverine has an incredibly extensive martial arts background, but opts instead for him to slash mindlessly around with his claws for some reason.
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
