Grrrrrrr......




Cool Breeze -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 9:47:00 PM)

I enjoyed it.Despite a few dodgy cgi shots its a thoroughly entertaining comic book action movie.Really dont get the hate.

Loved the final fight between Logan,Victor,and Deadpool.Looking forward to the sequel.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 9:48:51 PM)

Given as we spent several pages discussing why people hate it, I doubt any further discussion will help you along.




Cool Breeze -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 9:50:22 PM)

Well im pretty sure a lot of people like it.If you dont thats ok.

By the way, i think its better than the tween friendly First Class.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 9:53:46 PM)

Of course you do Cool. I would expect nothing less.

Tween-friendly First Class as a criticism, BUT YET YOU LIKE WOLVERINE. I sense a paradox.




Rgirvan44 -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 9:59:18 PM)

It is true. I for one think Wolverine wearing boxing gloves against the Blob in the ring was the height of maturity for the franchise.

Well aussie Hugh Jackman manages to keep his accent consistent for a start [;)]




Deviation -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 10:00:56 PM)

Keeping an accent =/= maturity of a movie in a franchise.




MonsterCat -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 10:19:05 PM)

Can I just say that "tween friendly" is not a viable criticism of a film.

Oh, and Wolverine is a terrible film.




rich -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 10:34:26 PM)

It was, and remains to be, absolute shite




Hood_Man -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (1/8/2012 11:06:10 PM)

The coin entering Kevin Bacon's head and Eric ripping out the man's fillings in First Class, were far more grizzly than the Adamantium process in Wolverine. Instant fail on Wolverine's part.

I have this film on my shelf as part of the X-Men Quadrilogy Blu Ray set* and I'm too scared to watch it again, knowing that I'll never get that time back. Plus I fear that it may take my soul.

I ended up watching it twice in the cinema (once with the missus, once with a mate, the second time partly to see if it was as bad as I first thought) and a bit of it since at home through the job I had at the time of the DVD release. It is a truly terrible film - so bad that it gets worse with each viewing.

I don't know if it's such an abomination due to it being shit or due to it being a huge missed opportunity to do something interesting with  the character(s).

For the record, I didn't really like X-Men: First Class that much either but that was mainly due to the fact it was obviously rushed (and it didn't know what it was supposed to be: reboot or prequel?).

* don't judge me - I bought it for less than 15 so I though it was worth the punt for the trilogy alone




The Hooded Man -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (3/8/2012 10:38:21 AM)

X2 was a much better explanation of Wolverine's origins and that was as part of a wider tapestry of the X-Men universe.

This is how I felt - we didn't learn anything new in this film, and going forward nothing which happens in the film outside of the experiment, has an impact on the character. It isn't like he mentions a lost love for example. It renders any emotional impact moot.




MonsterCat -> RE: X-Men Origins: Wolverine Review (22/8/2012 10:49:46 PM)

The idea of giving Wolvie his own flick was a good one, but going back to his origins always seemed a bit redundant to me.

It's also a shoddy and ugly looking thing with some sloppily handled action scenes.

The shoot sounded like a nightmare from some accounts. It is telling that neither Fox, nor Jackman, want to connect this any closer with the rest of the series.
