The worst X-Men movie by a healthy stretch. The bad things are obvious, so I'll just mention what really bothered me: When the hell is this film taking place? We go straight from Vietnam to. . .the modern age? But that can't possibly be right. How did NO ONE think of this? Only saving graces are Dominic Monaghan and Taylor Kitsch.
Failing to bridge with "X-Men," "Wolverine" is about as disappointing as I expected it to be. The movie deserves a much darker and meatier aesthetic. This presentation feels like pure movie studio vending machine product made by people who failed to see the first two "X-Men" films and what has already been explored with the Wolverine character. There's action in this, but the storyline is pretty dead and only serviceable. What should be dark and violent, is only a cheap-looking money squeezer.
An interesting addition to the movie version of the X-Men history, but it doesn't stand well on it's own. There's quite a bit of variance from the comics, which I suppose is to be expected, but there are also some continuity issues with the other movies as like a standing Xavier and a teen age Snow Queen in the 70s (she was an adult in the 60s in First Class). Worth watching, so long as you know it doesn't make any sense even within the X-Men universe.
The whole movie is not much more than a longer version of the flashbacks Wolverine had in the X-Men Trilogy. In the trilogy, what we wanted to see was more Wolverine kicking ass - in Origins, some more plot or characterization would have been nice. [Full Review]
I do not understand the vitriolic hatred for this film. It's a quick action movie with some good emotional beats and fun action. But then again, I liked the third X-MEN movie. Also, Ryan Reynolds was the best part.
