X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE
Hugh Jackman is REALLy good. He just embodies Wolverine.
Liev Schreiber is a pretty danged good Sabretooth too. He just exudes menace.
The old couple that save Logan just chew scenery.
The way Emma and Scott's powers are shown is well done.
"How are you going to kill me?" "thought I'd cut your head off. See how that works." Awesome line.
Everything else. This is a pretty bad movie.
Gambit is stupid. Let me just dissect his opening scene. Ok. So, he hates Sabretooth and the entire program and has gone to great lengths to escape them. Wolverine Shows up and Gambit wants nothing to do with him and his quest. So, he blows Logan through a wall to escape him. Then Sabretooth shows up and Wolvie and Sabretooth are killing each other. Problem solved for ol' Remy right? Just use the fight to escape. Nope. Gambit attacks both Sabretooth and Wolverine. Stupid.
And.....there are so many intelligence insulting moments it's ridiculous.
In the same fight that I mentioned above. Gambit is the most gymnastic flipping flopping character ever. he's so agile that he is able to literraly run up buildings. But, seconds later, once he has flippity flopped onto a fire escape, Logan begins to cut the ladder down. And...suddenly, remy has forgotten how to even walk, much less flip out of harms way. he just stands there paralyzed until Logan cuts him down.
And...there's about a hundred of these moments. Oooooh. heres another.--------Strikers entire plan. He knows Wolverine is going to be his enemy. He knows his entire plan hinges on killing wolverine. So, he makes him invulnerable. On purpose. In fact, he tricks him into it WTF?
And...Everybody is a ninja. everybody in the movie is able to slice bullets in half with swords and flip up the side of buildings and do all kinds of ninja stuff. boring.
OK....Dumbest part of this dumb movie. So, Sabretooth and Wolverine have become absolute mortal enemies. I mean, their entire lives have become centered around killing the other. But, then, at the end, when Wolvie is about to be killed by Deadpool (and dont get me started on how stupid it was for Logan to climb on top of that nuclear plant tower for the fight) all of a sudden They are absolute soul mates again. Stupid.
Lots other stuff. But, this movie is flat out for people who just want to see explosions. It just insults the intelligence at every turn.
Conclusion: Believe it or not I give it a D-. Not an F, only because Jackman and Schrieber were good enough to save it from an F. But, this movie is pretty friggin' bad.
