| Action packed
but with a story that is little dull. It is by no means bad, but it is not impressive either. The plot is not very memorable too but the movie itself is still well made and Hugh Jackman had more freedom with what he could do as Wolverine in this movie. But I gotta say the writers took a little too much freedom with Logan's story with things such as making Logan and Victor brothers. Another thing that bothered me a bit was the adamantium skeleton planting scene, which kind of went away from X2, it was acceptable but felt a little out of place. The ending with Stryker also felt a little out of place in my opinion.

But the action scenes did not disappoint and the romantic scenes with Kayla felt intimate. I enjoyed the scenes when Wolverine and Kayla interacted. Although I feel Victor being Wolverine's brother is a little misplaced it doesn't mean I did not enjoy their scenes together. The greedy and wild Sabretooth, often succumbing to his beast side and disregard all reason was a good contrast to Wolverine's quest to be human and avoid being a beast. Which was something that Kayla supported which made for rather intimate scenes between Logan and Kayla. Oh, the fight scenes with Sabretooth and Wolverine were just beastly enough to be acceptable.

But what I find a little odd was the inclusion of Gambit, I honestly don't feel there was much reason to have him in the movie. I mean the movie already had enough characters and I feel the writers could have come up with a better way to make Logan discover the island. I thought the rest of the characters were amusing, but I must say Deadpool stood out the most. When Deadpool was played by Scott Adkins they took some good advantage of his acrobatic skills that led to some wow action scenes. But still, the movie suffers a bit from the uninspired plot and a kind of boring story. So my verdict is 6/10.
