| Much better than the reviews, actions packed FUN
Forget the reviews that focus on dialogue (it's a comic book character, of course it's clichéd) or other types of thing you may look for in movies like a Room With A View. In this movie you want to see cool action, cool use of superpowers, great fights with CGI that is not obvious and some tension about what happens next. This movie has it all. Academy awards? No. Amazing plot? No, but enough to keep it very interesting, with answers like where Adamantium comes from, Sabretooth and Wolverine relationship, introduction of Deadpool, early view of Cyclops, and much more that keeps the movie going along just fine. This is a solid action film, better than most.

Did You Know?


In a Q & A with Kevin Smith, Edgar Wright revealed he was offered the role of Chris Bradley/Bolt by the producers. He declined, citing he wasn't a good enough actor. Hugh Jackman called him, along with other producers of the movie, with the impression that he had said "yes" to the role. Wright later e-mailed Jackman to politely decline the role.


Young Victor Creed: You're always sick.
Young James Logan: You were sick when you were my age.


(at around 28 mins) Kayla tells Logan the story of a wolverine howling at the moon. Wolverine vocal cords are unable to make a howling sound. But cultural stories are not always scientifically accurate, especially if they are a way for a culture to explain something in nature.

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: William Stryker is arrested and taken into custody for the murder of General Munson).

Alternate Versions

German theatrical version was cut by the distributor before submission to the FSK to secure a "Not under 16" rating (the killing of the old couple is shortened, you don't see Wolverine igniting the gasoline). Ironically, the uncut version, submitted for the home video release, was rated "Not under 16" as well, thus rendering the cut theatrical version completely unnecessary.
