X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Who the fuck is Gavin Hood, and moreover who was the genius that allowed him to make this disaster? This is easily the worst Marvel film besides MAN-THING, and yes, there is a MAN-THING movie. No other film has used such abusive CG since Stephen Sommer's cartoony shit-fests THE MUMMY RETURNS and VAN HELSING. I just searched Hood's filmography, and I don't understand what he has done that made Fox believe he was their man. The plot is a slap in the face to any fans of the original story base, all of the characters are completely throwaway, and the ridiculous amount of poorly integrated computer imagery makes this a lame joke on the audience. DAREDEVIL and GHOST RIDER are infinitely better than this piece of crap. X-MEN 3 is a thousand times better. Yeah, I said it. I meant it, too. There is nothing redeeming about WOLVERINE, and I didn't like it.

  1. My daughter LOVES this movie, but it may have more to do with her infatuation over Jackman than the flick itself.

  2. Jackman and Liev were the only saving graces of the film, I actually liked Liev's Sabertooth, but man.. I just couldnt get into the rest of the film..

  3. I agree on all counts. Jackman is great as Wolverine and Liev was awesome as Sabertooth...too bad the movie is so fucking shitball. I can't comprehend how you can have three X-Men films with claws that look never looked fake, yet when they are revealed for the first time in his own film, they looked completely fake?!

    I did like the first half of the film though. The stuff with Wolverine and Sabertooth was cool and I like mountain man Wolverine. It was during the boxing scene where everything went to complete shit. also, Will I Am can eat 24 dicks. Hate that guy.

  4. I liked the idea of much of the stuff leading up to Canada, but the execution was still terrible IMO. Zero and Deadpool's action sequences were goofy and lame, and the backstory leading up to the 70s was far too rushed since this was supposedly the origin story. Ugh. So disappointed..

  5. Wolverine and Sabertooth brothers? the White Queen turning to crystals? one minute you can't kill Wolvie next you can with Adamantium bullets. Also, How does Wolverine's healing ability reform the bullet holes in his head when he is shot at the end? it heals metal too? Wolverines keen senses couldnt detect his woman was actually alive? The worst was Deadpool's role. So many plot holes / story inconsistencies and all around BS makes this movie laughable at best. Hated it!

  6. The key problem was letting Jackman get creative control of the thing due to his Producer credits. I think when you add another person into the festivities after three films, some bad things are going to happen.

    By the way, the White Queen does turn into crystals in the comics. They didn't make that up.

    Ultimately, I can't hate a movie that has Ryan Reynolds splitting a bullet in half with a sword. Sue me.

  7. Well, I went into this movie expecting it to be terrible and so I told myself I would laugh instead of get mad. That's what I did, laughed my way through the entire ridiculous movie. Worked for me.

  8. I was told that it was stupid but that the action made up for it; wrong.

  9. As far as bad X-Men adaptations go, this is still MUCH better than the TV movie of 'Generation X.' I defy you to keep a straight face while watching that.

  10. You know what I have that on CD somewhere and I still havent seen it, I still say the CAPTAIN AMERICA, PUNISHER, and FANTASTIC 4 movies from the 90s were better than WOLVERINE lol..

    I need to track down a copy of GEN13 too, Ive been wanting to see that since 7th grade.
