A positive Review from the very snobby Slant Magazine. They call it the Best Superhero Movie of the year.
Quote:
The trained actors on screen (including Fukushima and Hiroyuki Sanada) engage in breathless, rivetingly captured swordplay, and always register as bona fide warriors. The same goes for Jackman, whose physical dedication to this role is its own form of heroism. His veins bulging like exposed tree roots, the actor aptly looks almost the same as he did 13 years ago, when Wolverine first met Jean and the gang. The uncanny visual continuity only further grounds the character, and while he goes through motions typical to this genre's protagonists (moral dilemma, emasculation-by-nemesis, acceptance of power, Christ-like exultation), they aren't often glaring deficits. The Wolverine may be the year's best superhero movie because, for a sufficient amount of time, it doesn't feel like a superhero movie at all.

I've just paused Origins just now as I'm struggling to get through a rewatch. That's laughable.

New member here: Not a new reader, been reading HYPE message boards for years. Time to chime in a little.

It seems the Top Critics just can't get over Xmen Origins

If this isn't a good film for Wolverine, there will never be one.

5 Rottens in a row now

Top critics are 50/50 so far.

True. And got more naked in Origins than he does in that scene in The Wolverine. The scene is really funny, but there's no point in advertising it as a major selling point.

Sheesh, it truly is a roller coaster, isn't it? From dreaming of "certified fresh", now I'm just hoping it stays "fresh" at all! I think it will, but it might be a close thing.

Well, it'll help the BO, at least, because it means I'll probably go see it several MORE times.

I like how two critics score it 2.5/4, one is fresh one is rotten.

Claudia Puig
of USA Today gave it a FRESH

she is a very good standard and she is a tough reviewer when it comes to comic films.

Although this film has Jackman in it which helps for the left leaning critics, they all love him.

I know it's weird...but the critics decide whether they want their review to be rotten or fresh.

and still laughing at this Laremy Legel from Film.com who gave this a ROTTEN but Origins a FRESH..

lmao!! Origins was not even in this films class. Not even close. Did he even watch the Wolverine or is he going off other critics?

I always love how one rotten review takes the score down a few notches, but in takes like 5 fresh reviews to bring it up one percentage!

Yeah so I gather, ah well, it all academic now get to see it myself tomorrow and I trust the views of the people here more than any "top critic" anyway.

Does anyone know why IGN's and SFX postive ratings are not added to RT, do they not get added, those reviews were out nearly a week ago?

I agree

It's funny how a terrible film (IMHO) like Springsteen and I garner a 90% from critics YET other good films get trashed.

I guess he is the BOSS, so that Garners a FRESH?

lol

No...those have yet to be added. I don't know for sure about SFX, but IGN's reviews get posted on RT.
