Please... Hugh didn't even know the game was violent (I'm not joking.) IGN said they were briefed before their interview to keep violence out of the conversation because Hugh wasn't aware the game was violent / bloody.

Dude, the game is sadistically violent. You mean to tell me he didn't get a glimpse of that while doing the voice recording?

That last bit of your post, man, what the mess?

He doesn't know how violent the game is? That's crazy.

I said yes because I just want a reboot. But he is a great Wolverine and now that he's older, he really is starting to fit into the character incredibly well. My only problem with him was A) Too tall but not a big deal and B) He's too much of a "hunky" Wolverine. Wolverine is supposed to be this hairy, not necessarily good looking character and Jackman seems to be the opposite.

I love Jackman as Wolverine but I don't think he understands the character as much as he thinks he does and if he does, then I would like for him to stick up for the character instead of allowing them to change the core of the character. I am scared that he thinks he is making a great movie (come on Hugh, I know you read the ladder slash scene in the script...come on) and after this, I only fear it will remain crap or get worse as he was a producer.

As an Australian, Im proud to see a fellow aussie in the role of one of my favoured marvel characters. Hugh Jackman does a good job with the part, and is generally a good actor, but there most DEFINATELY could have been someone better suited to play wolverine. For everyone that says hugh jackman isn't too soft as wolverine, is probably not aware that he's spent a good chunk of his career here, dancing around topless in flamboyant broadway musicals with a big stupid smile on his face. Without trying to insult Hugh, I gotta say that his friendly-pretty boy qualities shine through too much. Ive yet to see anyone do better, but hugh jackman's wolverine was too soft and too tall in my opinion. But I still enjoyed the movies.

Yeah... it actually kind of made me lose a bit of respect for Hugh when I look back on the interview where he went on and on... about how he was so "involved" with the project (the game) and oversaw most of it's content...

Yet, apparently, he didn't know in the first ten minutes you shove a mans head into the blades of a helicopter... -sigh- Oversaw my butt and eyeball.

It was pretty good. Worth my rental but I could see it getting old. For a movie game though... holy-wtf-excellent.

I'm not done with Jackman's Wolverine, I'm just done with to much Wolverine & his silly hairdo.

I'm not done with him by far. Jackman is, IMO, THE movie-verse Wolverine. He's a very devoted actor (who else would get a body like that for just one movie?), he's talented, and he can pull of that Grrr-look.
Complains about him being too short etc are unvalid in my humble opinion, his height has nothing to do with whether or not he can portray the character.

I also find it hard to believe that he wouldn't know a thing about the violence, but it would've been possible to keep him in the dark if they wanted.

The opening cinematic for the PSP game is exactly like the PS3/360 versions, with the exception that he kills robots and there is no blood. He could've voiced all the none bloody clips and later Raven could have changed the cinematics and added the blood in the game.

Here's the opening cinematic of the game, it's crazy violent. Gives you an idea of what Zack Snyder's Wolverine probably could've looked like.

Wolverine picks up the flag, and the end-of-game bell sounds. Wolverine wins.
That, my friends is Wolverine.
I agree. Also, I liked the fact that Wolverine didn't overshadow other characters in that script.

Good Not Perfect
Jackman is a good Wolverine but not the PERFECT Wolverine as someone said. Thats just kidding yourself or admitting you werent a big fan of Wolverine in the first place.

It isn't just Jackman
Its not even Jackman's fault. It could be Ratner's. Ratner was the director and he directed Jackman in a toned down direction. You might have mixed feelings about Ratner. He gave the X series life on the big screen and decent enough that movies were made that we actually cared about them. But at the same time, Im a big Wolverine fan and what Ratner did was the basis for how the masses would see Wolverine. He made it appealing to both fans and the general public, but people can see that as tweaking Wolverine into another people's favor. Changed just for acceptance and popularity. Yuck.

Soul of the Character
Wolverine is a feral beast. Jackman is awesome but with his natural Australian and him trying to get the American accent down, it meets somewhere in the middle and he sounds British lol. Wolverine is written to be witty and when fighting brutal... almost like a bad guy.

Wolverine is deeper than an angry man with claws and the movies don't often show that. Yes they show a soft side. But the wit isn't there. The snarkiness is kind of there. It really does just feel like a cranky Jackman. It's not his fault though, the director chooses how he wants Wolverine portrayed.

Who else?
Hugh Jackman was god sent to Ratner. He could sell a movie and he did. Who else did you guys think could make a good Wolverine? I think Thomas Jane had a good look...but he effin did the Punisher so that's a no go. Jane had the body, the face, gritty voice, and in his movies he's always getting effed up and thrashed.

Ever see him like the comics
I think the only way we can get him like in the comics is through re-boot which won't happen in about 10 years.


This is a good Wolverine, but not Perfect.
