I am still seeing a lot of haters on posts for the new Wolverine movie. Is the there anyone on CCL that thinks this movie will be any good? I want it to be an awesome flick but I have my doubts. I am encouraged by the recent previews. The train fight looked pretty good. But one action sequence doesn't make a great movie.

Have they even released a second full-length trailer yet? The fact that there's been so few trailers this late in the game has me worried. I mean, the guys that create these trailers are pros at making the worst movies look like the best movies ever. And yet they haven't been releasing any.

Honestly, I thought the trailers that came out for the first movie were a lot more compelling than the one I've seen for this new movie. And that's not a good sign.

I agree, i will check it out no matter what but the trailers for this so far are pretty low key. I'm hoping there trying to hide something good. Wishful thinking i know....

I believe it takes place after X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

I don't care what people say in reviews, I think alot of people just like to say bad things so they feel important about themselves.

I plan on going to see it and if it can keep me entertained for however long it is, its a good movie in my mind. If it keeps me in my seat the whole movie (no bathroom breaks or popcorn refills) then it was a great movie.

As to the time frame, I gave up trying to figure out any marvel movies because they just change stuff so much it's not even worth trying to figure out how it works in with the other movies. just best to sit back and enjoy what your watching and not to get all bent out of shape when they do a 180 on your favorite character or storyline.

I saw it yesterday afternoon. It was alright (probably a little better than I was expecting).
They did however really mess up some things, I won't spoil anything here but if you see it you'll know what I'm talking about.
I'd say it's better than Wolverine: Origins and The Last Stand, but that's about it.
Either way if you go, stay for the mid-credits scene at the end it's possibly the best scene in the movie.

+1 to all of this. It's like you took the words right out of my mouth.

I liked it. My favorite X-related movie by far. But I've hated everything else, so take that for what it's worth.

i'm 43, and ever since the original 4 issue mini, wolvie's been my favorite marvel character. i haven't always loved how they handle the character, but that comes with the territory. i have 95% of his appearances and have read it all.

for the most part i've enjoyed the movies too.

this one was an utter disappointment. it seemed they took a list of characters, plot lines and images from years of comics and blended and shredded them up together and baked @ 300 deg F for 2 hours. that could've worked, but the pacing was slow, which enhanced the plot holes. some cool scenes, but an overall failure.

almost as bad as iron man 3.

Miller and Clairmont work on that mini was great. I didn't like where wolvie went towards the tail end of Clairmont's reign and really never was able to get back into the character since.

the movies are entertaining, as long as you go in knowing everything you ever knew about the subject of the movie will not be in the movie.

I enjoyed it, a lot actually. Yeah there where plot holes, yeah there where massive differences from the comics and I could spend hours with it, or any super-hero movie, and tear it apart for what was wrong, but I try not to. I try to just enjoy the movies for what they are.

It was great to see Femke in the movie as I wasn't expecting that (I try not to look at the IMDB lists so I get surprised when something like that happens).

The mid credits scene was awesome.

My only real gripe with the movie was the f-bomb dropped by Wolverine as it felt completely out of place, just as it did in First Class.

for me, these aren't mutually exclusive. i learned at a very early age that tv/film adaptations are just that... ADAPTATIONS. on some level, i've enjoyed most of the marvel films, and i never expect completely faithful (or even remotely faithful) versions of the source material. despite this, IMO, iron man 3 and the wolverine were UNentertaining train wrecks. this is in reference to the films overall, not on one specific aspect. when poor writing, slow/choppy pacing and questionable directing/editing are painfully evident, it makes the plot holes & continuity difference stand out even more.

Saw it last Saturday and I thought it sucked. Too long, too slow, too tedious, lame special effects and nothing very original in the fight scenes.

I haven't seen Wolverine properly portrayed on the big screen since X-Men 2.

I saw it on Sunday. IMO, this was not one of the better recent Marvel movies. The scene after the credits did a lot to make up for what I would deem a subpar film, though.
