I’ve seen worse action films, and there are some ok moments but overall this is pretty lame. There are just far too many “yeah, but why…” moments–not to mention, how the hell did that dude fit those swords in his arms?

I thunk it was cool, but very dumb in the end, I still can't get over that wade Wilson turns into weapon 11 and in turn gets decapitated!!!!!!! All in all a good movie, by far the best so far

It had more potential than was carried out. The movies version of Wolverine is the only version of the character that I can tolerate, but this one, which messes with previous movie continuity and works around with some of the material from the Origins miniseries, comes up a bit short, particularly in the depiction of Deadpool.

This was much more interesting than I expected. I was not following all the x-men movies, but I could understand most of the original background. It made me feel like watching other x-men movies.

This movie made deadpool a freakin' zombie Baraka (from mortal combat)
I mean, Seriously.
He was the best anti-hero in the comics.

While I found this movie to have some pretty awesome special effects, and a good plot, it still could've been done a bit better. I would recommend this to fans of science fiction as well as to fans of the other X-Men movies.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.” B+ DVD

A look at Wolverine's early life, in particular his time with the government squad Weapon and the impact it will have on his later years.

From this movie, 3rd in the series of X-men movies, we finally understand who Wolverine is, where he came from, how he got there and how all the "others" come to be in the series of X-men.

Brilliant portrayal by Jackman who plays the brooding loner, haunted by who he is, tied to family (brother) and yet not quite free enough to be who he is.... a mutant.

Sub-plot there is a love story, family ties and a new beginning for all

Other: If you don't mind a bit of language and lot of slasher/cut-em-up violence, it is a very good Marvel Movie.

William Stryker: Mutants. I don't hate them, I just know what they can do. You don't realize this, but we are at war. I took an oath: Protect this country. My name is William Stryker, and I am not a monster. I am simply a patriot.
