Rotten: Wolverine's backstory was good stuff -- but after the falling out with Schreiber, the story loses its center and it gets wobbly.

Wolverine, Deadpool, lots of action . .i enjoyed this from start to finish. Lots of more hard core comic people may have not liked it. I on the other hand not being one of them loved it.

I found a lot to like about this movie, yet, at the same time, it was also a let down. It's entertaining, and I'm glad they finally brought Wade Williams and Gambit to the big screen, but they really screwed with the mythos (especially with Deadpool). He deserves his own series, and deserves to have his story told properly. I also wish there was more screen time for Gambit. This movie overall is barely slightly better than average, thanks in part to the good special effects, and the decent performances. But for Wolverine's story to be told right, the movie needs to be longer and less restrained. I mean, yeah, the audience gets the idea of his violent history, but the character is so enduring that toning down the content and keeping things from being fully developed is just teasing the audience. I think the one thing I liked most of all about this movie was seeing Will.I.Am in his big screen debut (he's not bad), but mainly Liev Schreiber as Victor Creed. Tyler Mane was great in the original X-Men film (given how much they used him), but Schreiber is a bad ass and brought his acting chops with him. Yeah, this is flawed, but its cool, and does provide insight into one of the most beloved comic book characters, even if things aren't quite handled the way they should be. Save this one for a boring rainy day.

Hugh Jackman gives an outstanding performance to shroud the fact X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a simplistic and safe film that doesn't really execute as much as the X-Men franchise. The script touches on familiar grounds and different landscapes but still doesn't surpass the impact the X-Men trilogy had. 3.5/5
