Default What is the running time?

movies.com has it at 1 hr 37 min. That is 97 minutes...that is bull ****. Pitiful...even a guy who is blind would say 'That is some bs by FOX.' And that makes no sense, cause blind people can't watch movies.

1:47 minutes with credits, so 90 something minutes without = pathetic.

Still pitiful. A 2hr movie would do good. X2 was like over 2 hrs and did good in theaters. FOX is stupid...I may not see the movie in theaters now. First they mess around with DBE, now a low excuse for a running time for Wolverine.

But how can you argue with those magnificent credits?

I don't care if the credits are so awesome they cure cancer, credits are credits. I want actual minutes.

But you can show the movie more times with a shorter runtime....

It's a orgin story. Okay. If Iron Man can get that 2 hr runtime, why can't Wolverine? It's a short movie this one is, that means rush story, poor characters,...sounds like a waste of money.

It is

Seriously though, an extra few minutes wouldn't have really helped the film a great deal. Becasue of its episodic nature, I'd argue it seems longer than it really should

Better you'd be put out of your misery quickly

Pretty much. Just the way it's edited and jumps around from place to place. Gives the story no time to breath
