No one is saying he sounds like Mr. Freeze. He *looks* like Mr. Freeze. The silver-painted skin. The armored costume. Batman & Robin's Mr. Freeze.

Besides General Zod doesn't have monopoly over "wreaking havok across NYC, toppling buildings and stuff" If we were to go by that then General Zod stole his maniacal plan from Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Just seen the movie and OMG, she's really over the top, and in a very bad way. Yes, she's like Poison Ivy.

Her character wasn't even interesting, she was really one dimensional.

It's a pity because the other actresses were really good... really, really good. Yukio was great and Mariko was terrific.

And it's even more sad to have the Silver Samourai, who didn't seemed to fit in the story and such a lame cartoony character in a movie that is so much better than the first wolverine and had such an overall good characterisation and character progression.

I can't wait to see how over the top she is!

I didn't have the "Wolverine: The Rise of Viper" in my sig for no reason, it was a reference to the over-the-top cartoony movie G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra.

Yeah Viper doesn't fit the film at all. She's not even particularly useful to the plot. Pretty lame.

I was disappointed how character was written. She doesn't fit into storyline. Svetlana was great, no doubt.

Her role was pretty small in the film, she did what she had to do, nowhere near as bas as some have made out, just not very memorable was her only fault.

I think the problem with Viper was they didn't execute her story well, like for the first half of the movie, we only got glimpses of her, she was a mystery then near the end, she suddenly turned into an evil mutant that was kinda running the show until Silver Samurai stood up. I think if they developed her more especially with her relationship with Yashida, things could have been better for her.

I wasn't expecting much in the first place tbh.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
LOL @ Viper changing her outfit at the climax.

I wonder why they gave her the silk green costume. I prefer the 1st one.

And also I noticed that some shots that were shown in the trailers didn't make the final cut

-Viper holding something and smiling
-Viper holding Yashida's arm like as if she was comforting Yashida

I didn't mind neo-Viper. Just weird they changed her from Eastern European to American at some point in the process. That ADR! I liked the way
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
she went out, basically that whole segment with Wolverine and Yukio involvement once Wolverine is freed.

I would go along with this. She was not particularly bad just poorly developed, I liked her moment with Shingen and her skin shedding scene but so glad when Yukio killed her, she didnt do enough to warrant a comeback

Not even close to Poison Ivy. She was out of place, but not to a detrimental point. And her lines and performance were subdued enoguh to not make her OTT.

Did not feel like she fit at all. Unless I'm mistaken she even started hissing which caused me to roll my eyes.

Yeah to me she was more "meh" than OTT. Not really a big part of the movie so no big deal. Similar to Harada.

Viper for the beginning of the film really served a snake in the background type role (pun intended), but she takes over the third act in a very important way.

I laughed pretty hard when she was running while hissing, but only to get knock out by an arrow in the ending fight... LOL.

Everyone is trashing her character as a Xmen Origins cast off.

I don't get it, she did a heck of a job and she was a believeable villian, I actually thought she was VIPER.

critics are wrong here, she was no where near a January Jones in acting, lol

Viper rocked and can act.

Her acting was a solid B+

B+ because I believed she was the character.

I think we can officially add Viper to the hall of female characters in the X-Men movies like Storm and Emma.

Like Storm/Emma, people find Viper as the weakest link of the film.

But like Storm/Emma, I still like her!
