The opening scene notes he is living in Canada when he is a boy and first discovers his mutation. I believe he and Victor are fighting in the wars because the wars are supposed to suit their nature, not necessarily their nationality.

I missed that or was too drunk in the theatre at the starting of the movie. The running joke seemed like he was saying im Canadien like he wasn't before especially when stryker tells him what he can do for his country. What a waste of a joke.

This is a film that is ruled by mediocrity. In fact, It's infuriating for it.
Overall, it's not horrible, but the whole movie reeks of a missed opportunity.




Exactly!

the hypocracy regarding these movies is amazing. despite fighting in 4 wars, jaded to the point that he casually storms normandy with a cigar in his mouth, and gets in viscious fights, moreso than any other x flick, all because he is blinded by rage, fury, and revenge, hes not an animal because hes provoked. but x2 is him being an animal because of the mansion scene. . . cuz we all know that he wasnt provoked in that scene...

I think this is the only movie that really showed his eagerness to fight. Every time he met a new character he had to fight them, that actually reminded me of the Wolverine from the comics. Although it seems to be something that be people are complaining about...

I liked the movie,but it felt rushed.They could of went deeper into some areas which would of made the film alot better.I give it a 7 out of 10.

Like when it shows Wolverine and Sabertooth fighting side by side in all of those different wars,they should of spent like 3 to 5 minutes on each war with some dialogue and better camera angles that isn't out of focused.

Gambit's character seemed crappy.The things I didn't like about him:
1.His appearance,he has long hair and looks like Wolverine's kid brother.They should of made him look different from Wolverine.

2.Gambit having cat like super powers also ruined his character.

3.When he threw a card you didn't see the pink orb around it when it flew,it was like his power was wind.

4.Gambit levitating cards also seemed weird.

^I hated seeing Gambit in this movie because of the reasons that I mentioned.They totally blew a great opportunity with that character.

Deadpool was cool,but they should of gave him more screentime.And they should of showed him getting sick and Stryker using Wolverines healing factor to inject it into Deadpool so he would be cured.And show him becoming deformed and psychotic from being injected with another mutant's power.

So when they put more powers into him,he would really be deformed and psychotic...
Deadpool should of had his mask on for the final fight,it just would of made it more epic,and it would of made sense sense he would of had a jacked up looking face.

He should of also been injected with Agent zero's power so he could be a super marksman.

His new powers as Deadpool:
1.His swords coming out of his arms,adamantium blades,kinda cool.

2.Optic blasts seemed too much.

3.Teleportation,very nice.

4.Super healing,cool.

Kinda wished they would of showed Cyclops in a better way.Like show how Stryker could even find him.Like maybe some bullies are picking on Scott and when they knock him down his glasses come off and Scott's optic beam takes out half the school.

-Blob was cool,just wish he was bigger and was big from the beginning.

-Agent Zero was cool how he is a super marksman,just hate how they also gave him catlike powers where he can leap over really high obstacles.

-Wraith,he was ok.

-Sabertooth,was awesome.

Hated how Wolverine's girlfriend was a fake,that she was working for Stryker,and hated that they didn't get someone hotter to play her.They should of made Stryker kill her by sending Agent Zero,making Wolverine go after Stryker.

Just got back. I rated it a 6 out of 10, but there's probably a margin of error of +/- 1 considering I haven't really let it cool down yet.

Basically, it had some good moments, and I found it entertaining with some serviceable action, but considering what it had to live up to, I think it failed.

Would've been a lot better if it would've possibly stayed a bit longer in certain moments... so to speak. Elaborated on some stuff.
I don't see why Logan and Victor's relationship and their "breakup" couldn't have been given some more time. They're brothers, they've looked after each other for 150 years (or something like that)... slowly Victor has grown more violent and dark... that problem really should've been given some more time.

Effects wise I didn't really think it felt up to snuff. Wolverine's metal claws looked abysmal at points... I mean, like something from Roger Rabbit... and the attempt to make Patrick Stewart look younger just looked weird.
Wire work also didn't seem very impressive.

All in all: Meh.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I used to believe that a superhuman agility was part of his mutant ability (I think it's mentioned in that basketball game they play right before meeting Omega Red, X-Men 4, when they agree to play without powers)

Awsome movie!!!! Great funny moments and outstanding fight scenes. Love the part when
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Remmy is talking trash behind wolvy and wolvy just elbows him in the face. It was precious!!!!

In any event. I had a blast. Dont understand the hate or the over analyzation of a comic book property or the want of someone other than the main character to have a meaty part. Even so all the really mutants that needed some kick arse time got it. Remmy was awsome unleasing his powers. Wade was OH MY GOD awsome. I got the Wade ending. Loved it!!! ANy ways, my opinion. Loved this movie wayyyyyy better than BB. BB was too much of a snorefest and that bat voice......wow. BUT!!! This is the wolverine forum, so I expect that wolvy fans will be reading this and not the haters. If you havent, go see this movie and enjoy it for what it is. A darn fun romp.

You are intitled to your opinion.

I'm not a big fan of Batman Begins but this movie was nowhere near as good as Batman Begins to me. It's not even as good as the horribly aged X-men, a movie I never loved by the way.

Went to the 12:01 showing last night and after nitpicking (the movie -vs- the comic)whole thing to my wife then sleeping on it, I'm giving it an 8. It could of been better but I enjoyed it.

I can only assume that eventually Wade will find his head and re-attach it and then open up his lips.

I'm guessing #2 will be staged in Japan or Madripoor.

My wife doesn't believe the crap with the adamantium bullet either......

My friend went to the midnight premiere and didn't like it. He said there were a few cheers, but at least a good fourth of the theater left.

I'm a Wolverine fan and I've been waiting for a long time for a GREAT SOLO Wolverine film.

The film I saw last night was a waste of time and it was a mediocre, unbalanced waste. I wanted this film to be good....but it wasn't.

I heard bad things and it was disappointing to see the direction Fox ended up taking with this film.

Rothman manipulated and suckered Jackman, Benioff and Hood into making crap.
