But the point is, what Wolverine does with the body is not important to the story. It's not needed to be known.

Complaining about that is just grasping at straws, anything and everything you can find to try to make the movie look bad. It is not a valid complaint.

Stryker also knows her power. It's also not unreasonable to assume he'd take measures to make sure she never touched him.
It was important to the story to know what happened to the body. With the reveal of her being alive, questions like this will reach the viewers mind. Many people have had a problem with it. The reveal scene shows flashbacks of Creed pouring blood on her, was it hard to show how her body was taken or what Wolverine done with it? But they didn't and it's up to us to take guess as what has happened just like the Wade Wilson situation. We don't know if he volunteered(and if so, why?) or was force to be Weapon XI.

I saw this film last night at midnight and I have to say, it was awesome. Hugh, once again, kicked ass as WOlverine and the rest ofthe cast members were great. Overall, an awesome movie and I'll write my full review later.

I strongly hate the Wolverine character, because of how he is made out to be some God AMONGST the fanboys just like Batman is over at DC. So I am the furthest thing from a fanboy. But I can still respect the character's origin, and other things that made me USED to like him more.

This movie...was horrible.

I thought the film was pretty good in spite of most of the complaints I'd been hearing. I was fearing for the worst. I give it an 8/10. It was good, but not Iron Man good or Dark Knight good.

I loved Gambit in it, wished there coudl have been more. Would have loved to se a telepathic conversation between him and the Professor. Why wasn't he invited to go along? Or had he refused? We don't know.

Loved Wade Wison, kinda iffy on Deadpool. It just wasn't the same without the motor mouth running, you know? I would love to know who sticks his head back on, I mean, they are talking about making another film with him right?

No one is "exaggerating", it's just individual taste and opinion. I thought it was okay (being generous) but the story and characters were very sub-par. What they did to characters like Deadpool and The Blob, inexcusable...

Kanon, what an awesome review!

"Hardcore fans (or maybe not that hardcore) are going to cry in pain for many, many things, but those who can accept the liberties taken to create this new story, are going to enjoy and recognize the likeness of the original Logan, Sabretooth, Wade Wilson, Silverfox and their relationships in their new incarnations."

Amen to that. I think people should respect the liberties people can (and will) take when making a comic book movie. And people should judge the film by itself, not just in comparison to the source material.

I voted 10/10 by the way, I thought this movie was excellent.

Maybe watching it a second time will help.

It was super lame and cliched to death that they went the oh she fake died and is back route when Silverfox could have just touched Logan and made him think she was dead. We could have seen those thoughts in his head that he sees her body and then come to find out that they were all just in his head and now that same person that did that to you wants you to believe that she really loved you. You see how a little script change like that adds tons of dimensions to those characters? Instead, we got a half ***ed scene in which leaves open questions about her still alive body.

No. Simple fact was that aside from all the source material the movie pissed on? It was horrible. Doesn't matter if they try to introduce the characters in a different way and different story. Simple fact is, if they wanted to go the route of Stryker's plan to "make an ultimate soldier" with the Weapon X project, it could've been done better.

Bottom line, is the execution of the ideas was very poor. I can stand and say X3 had some good ideas, but bad execution on how those ideas were carried out. This film suffers from the same problem.

I can write a story about nothing more than a kid and his puppy and the story is nothing more than the puppy gets run over by a car. It can be brilliant or it can be crap. It all depends on how I execute the idea. Everything about this movie, was bad except for the casting choices. The characters themselves were not bad in the story they were in, but aside from Wolverine and Sabretooth? Nothing else was FANTASTIC. And that's what makes this movie so horrible.

I'm actually seriously debating not going. We'll see.

I know; the movie wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it still had major problems. I gave it a 6/10 like you.

This film is easily a 6/10 rated film!

Utterly disappointing and executed terribly much like X3, the F4 films, Elektra and Daredevil.

People in here who give it a rating of anything above an 8/10 have no credibility.....period.

But since you're such an expert on optic blasts why don't you explain how dialing the visor creates a smaller or bigger blast? How come the force of the optic blasts doesn't push the glasses/visor off his face. How or why can ruby quartz hold them back?

And by the way, Deadpool doesn't need a visor, the part of his brain that controls the blasts wouldn't be damaged like Cyclops'. He can control the intensity of the blast.
The visor was in front of his face, his beam went into the visor that Jean was holding in the air, the visor modified his beam and he blasted Sabretooth. If he didn't have his visor then he would have obliterated Sabretooth.

Ask Bryan Singer or ask the man that created the character. You know you are wrong with this argument so now you are trying to belittle my knowledge...good effort though

I never said Deadpool needed a visor because this film is DIFFERENT in regards to X1-X3.

This should have been a SOLO Wolverine film and not another force fed X-Men spinoff which caused this film to be ruined.

While I gave the film a 5 and don't share the opinions of other peoples posts, saying people don't credibility is a pretty stupid thing to say. Films are subjective, that's the great thing about them and maybe this film was more entertaining for people then it was for us. Everyone loves some films that most people hate or have mixed reactions to.

This is not a perfect film by far (10/10) nor is this movie a complete disaster with nothing good in it (1/10) so people who vote like that just to vote like that, usually to spite the polar opposite, don't have credibility to me in my opinion. I try to rate movie fairly and I don't go THIZ WAZ AWEZOMEZ 10/10 or I hate Fox, this sucked 1/10...that is lame

I agree.

As I said in my review a page or so back, this movie is almost maddening in how mediocre it is. It's not bad enough to hate, but not good enough to be a little bit satisfied.

The most frustrating thing by far is how they could have made such a great movie if they changed just a few things.

I can easily call this movie-verse and accept that some things will be changed. I didn't see anything that was devastatingly off, except for Brakapool. It still wasn't enough to make me hate it though.

I would have liked to see some fleshing out of Logans' youth, some of the old team chemistry brought out a little more. We hardly knew some of these guys and then bang, they were gone.

I'm glad some people on here have brought up that sheer stupity of a computer controlled villain at the end of the film. When me and my sister watched the leaked version we rolled our eyes at that. And I know nothing about DeadPool so my complaints about the end baddie had nothing to do with it not being like the comicbook.

I just found the end villian to be sucktacular.

UGH! I wrote a lengthy review, hit post, and I got an error and lost it

I'll write something detailed later then. I have no time to rewrite that before I leave for work. In short, mediocre and shares many pacing and plot problems X3 and 90% of FOX's comic movies have had. Wasted potential, but with redeeming qualities. However, the blatantly stupid scenes and horrible deus ex machina make this film mediocre.

5.5/10...I gave it a 5 in the poll.

IMO, X3 is better, so this another 4th installment that is worse than the 3rd film before it.
