This movie actually really grown on me. I rank it higher than The Last Stand and The Wolverine.

Here's why:

1) It's easy to forget about it when watching other and more important X-Men movies. It's an Origins story. So you can just take this movie for a general idea.

2) Liev Schreiber as Sabertooth is one of the greatest X-Men Villains to date.

3) This movie came out during the summer/spring of my senior year in high school (before college). So I got a lot of nostalgia here.

4) It's one of those "so corny it's good movies" like Fast & the Furious.

If Deadpool wasn't in this movie and they didn't do the adamantium bullets, it might have actually been ok.

I'm also ashamed that there is no clear forum section of where to talk about the classic that is X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

We do need a forum for this movie.

Eh, there's no need. Just toss X-Men Origins in the title of this one or The Wolverine forum. It's 5 years and 3 films removed now, and I can't imagine many people have enough interest in it to warrant its own forum.

No idea why it gets so much hate. Sure there were a few things that could have been better (bit longer, some poor effects and most of all the "real" Deadpool) but that aside i can't fault it.

Great story, really good action scenes, nice soundtrack. Great acting too, especially from Jackman and Schreiber. The Blob was done really well, never thought they would be able to pull him off. Kitsch was ok as Gambit, would have been better if he perfected the accent. Schreiber was as close to Sabretooth as we'll ever get. Just compare him to Tyler Mane in X-Men 1!

I would have liked another half an hour dealing with Weapon X backstory. If they had done that and gotten Deadpool right this would have been up there with Avengers and Iron Man for me.
Agree.

regarding the Deadpool, I don't see why the anger, his story in that movie can work well with any future Deadpool projects thanks to the after-credits scene.
we saw how his mouth is "unzipped" again , and he pulls his head to his body. no need to make an other origins story, just we need a movie of Deadpool already being Deadpool.

Now I know I may be opening a Pandora's box here with my question but it is something that I have always wondered

Do you think X-Men First Class or this movie should be placed first in the X-Men Chronology?

Now I have checked lot of discussion forums and there is lot of disagreement amongst fans as to which is the first chronologically and with regard to character development.

I think Wolverine Origins has to be the first simply because of the time he was born. He is shown in the movies to be born somewhere in the 19th century much before Magneto and Prof X. But the confusion arises because in the end they show Professor X who is bald and not wheelchair bound; whereas in X-Men First Class at the end they show a much younger Prof X who is wheelchair bound but not yet bald. And to add to the confusion they show a scene where Xavier and Magneto meet Wolverine in a bar...

What do you guys feel?

Even though Wolverine Origins starts off 1 century before the events of First Class, the opening credits for Origins stops at the Vietnam war which places the movie after the 1973 events of Days of Future Past so the chronology goes as follows:

-The first 6 minutes of Origins: Wolverine
-The atomic bomb scene in The Wolverine
-First Class
-Days of Future Past (1973)
-Origins: Wolverine
-X-Men
-X2: X-Men United
-X3: The Last Stand
-The Wolverine
-Days of Future Past (2023)

The reason why Xavier is old and bald at the end of Origins is because most of the film is set in 1985 whereas First Class is in 1962. Plus, DOFP answers the "Xavier walking" issue by having him use a drug that helps him walk again. As for the bar scene in FC, Wolverine isn't going to remember meeting Xavier and Magneto 4 decades before X1 due to his amnesia.

Thanks a lot Dax for clearing that for me.
Actually I have always wondered why they play so much with the timelines in the X-Men Universe movies. I don't think there is another franchise with so much interlinking between each movie...
