X-Men Origins: Wolverine *SPOILERS*

Probably spoilers, anyway. I didn't see another thread, so....


So did anyone see it? Just got back.

I have 3 major gripes.

First, the CGI claws are really shit. They should have spent a little extra money in a few of the scenes where they are prominently featured as focal points to make them more real.

Second, dialogue was kind of crap.

Third... how the hell are you going to make a movie called "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and then have his escape from the Weapon X compound after the adamantium bonding process last all of 5 seconds? And I don't even remember him killing anyone at that point. Really, is there ANY other reason to make this movie other than THAT scene? And then to race through it and gloss over it like that? Come on!


Otherwise, it was alright. A mixed back, much the same as the 3rd X-Men movie. Doesn't really live up to his potential, but the fanboy wank moments still make me giddy.

Is it just me, or is the favorite scene the part when all the kids get out and Professor X finds them? touched



Oh, and as for the eye candy, there was a lot of sexiness in this movie. Hugh Jackman is hotter than ever. I swear I got a boner a few times.

I'm surprised they didn't trot out Ryan Reynolds' fine ass and put his body on display more. Well, before they turned him into an unrecognizable mutilated freak,

Oh, and Liev Schriber got buff. And sexy. How'd that happen?

a few positive points...


streamlining Wolverine's continuity from the complete mess they've made of it in the last 10-15 years was nice.

they really didn't hold back much on giving people what they came for, which is lots of Wolverine/Sabretooth fight scenes.

Gambit wasn't annoying.

the spinning decapitated head destroying the nuclear reactor with optic blasts was kind of a neat touch.

Will.I.Am didn't suck.



oh, and i guess a few negative points too:

i know he was kind of there for comic relief, but the part with Blob was stupid and i'm not sure he translated well to the screen.

am i the only person that missed the part, whenever it was, that they decided to start calling Wolverine "Logan" for the rest of the movie, instead of James/Jimmy?

I dunno, I liked it.

To me, it was not quite as good as X2, but it was a little better than X3.


I really really really wish they didn't completely fuck Deadpool up tho disbelief

the thing about X3 is that while i don't particularly care for that movie (why'd they bother with Dark Phoenix if they were just going to let it lay there)... it does have that scene at Jean Grey's house where she kills Xavier. that one is a real stunner and i don't think anything else in any of the X-Men movies has (or can) top it. (except for maybe the giddiness that the White House scene with Nightcrawler in X2 gives me)

I liked it, thought Hugh and Liev did great jobs. But I felt the movie was rather predictable, could see the plot twists a mile away.

yeah...Deadpool is the Wolverine movie's Jean Grey, a totally wasted opportunity.

And I do agree, X3 had some good scenes. It's just that when compared to the previous 2 films, it's just so obvious that X3 could have been so much better than it was. It was the same thing with Spiderman 3 come to think of it.

I think I generally liked it too. Though I have high expectations for anything X-Men related, being an uber-fan of the comics, so I came away slightly disappointed.

But I suppose those high expectations really should have been at least a little deflated after reading the last 20 years worth of the comics themselves. confused

i actively hated Spider-man 3 as i was watching it. it really pissed me of, considering that Spider-man 2 might actually be my all-time favorite superhero movie.


all i can say is thank god there was no mention of Romulus in this movie. woot! it gets bonus points just for that.

as for Deadpool, you know... they made a few offhand comments about him not shutting up. but he only had like 3 lines in the whole movie. if that.

and they did kind of fuck him up. he's the kind of character who would work well in a movie of his own, a dark comedy about crazed vigilante-ism, but not now.

not even sure why they bothered to use him in this way, except that he's a character with a Weapon X connection. but then, they didn't use Maverick of Fantomex, so big deal.

i am glad Gambit was in it and my favourite part was when Professor X turned
smile

what i would love is another X-Men movie with a storyline from where Professor X find them onwards they could create a good storyline without having to worry about which 'star' has the most scenes/lines etc (didnt see any particularly famous actor/actesses amongst the mutants that escaped) and have it focus on less known characters such as Gambit or Jubilee.

Alas poor Deadpool they fucked you up. I thought the movie was OK. Jackman was good in it. I wish the X-Men franchise could be made by the Marvel Studios to really do it justice.

Generally I liked it, but it wasn't anything spectacular.

The movie, like the X movies, suffered from too many underdeveloped secondary characters, even to the point of not making certain characters names clear to the audience. I know the storylines function as ensemble pieces, but without the room comics allow to elaborate on every aspect this and the X trilogy should have streamlined its cast more.

Will.I.Am was better than expected.

They made it pointedly clear that Wolverine is Canadian, something I honestly was not expecting. woot! canada

The actor who plays Gambit was born in the city I lived in for 17 years. Cool. smile

Actually Maverick WAS in the movie, he was Agent Zero.

I thought it was a great combination of action and storytelling although I can agree with Meow about the character names because I'm more familiar with the TV Xmen than the comic books. I have to rely on my sons to fill in the gaps for me.

I had a lot of favorite scenes. Professor X saving the kids of course, the bar fight scene, Hugh Jackman with no clothes on, (hot diggity damn, I wanted to bite him!), the helicopter chase, and best of all...Gambit! I LOVE Gambit! woot!

(shut up Threadbare, lol)

My least favorite was the Will.I.AM segment. Sorry, but I thought his acting was dreadful and the fat suit they had on whatshisname looked too cartoonish.

How comes everybody's saying they screwed up Deadpool???

I went with an old friend and, right after the scene where he abandoned Victor and the gang, she turned to me and said:
"That Wolverine is just so fine... You hear me???"

I thought Kayla (sp?) was absolutely gorgeous, which points to problematic casting. Men typically don't have trouble bending to the will of beautiful women.

Thanks for answering my question!

I was thinking that maybe they were trying to portray Deadpool in the early stages of his creation or something, but my son says Deadpool and Weapon XI should have been 2 separate characters.

Man, I gotta do a better job of keeping up with this stuff. lol

It was just ok for me shrug I have to agree with the OP. some of the more essential scenes could have been played out longer.

I give it a B and I would recommend it. Better than X-3. About the level of the first X-Men.
Deadpool and Weapon XI should have been separate characters.
Gambit was good and deserves a movie that isn't an 'origins' piece.

Was I the only one who thought the Weapon XI fight scene was lifted from 'Star Wars:The Phantom Menace'?

I liked the movie as well. Seemed a bit rushed though like X-3. Was on par with X-3 quality wise. I agree the CGI looked rather cheap. I dunno.
Question anyone. I couldv've swore I saw an early clip of a young storm (guessing here) being picked up/rescued on a beach by someone. Anyone else see this?
Also did anyone see the linked version on-line and if so is there any cool differences?
Now that I paid and saw the real version it would be cool to check out the leaked version. For comparsion of course.

Oh, maaaybe hmmm


Ah, but i found this from comicvine.com
in an interview with producer Lauren Shuler Donner. She mentions that Storm did have a cameo but the scene has been cut from the movie. It seems that the movie is currently just under two hours. Donner also says that it doesn't appear that there will be many extra scenes for the DVD release.


They need to do another Origins movie so we can get more story of the rest of the mutants. did anyone else think Logan was gonna kill Gambit when he couldn't remember who he was? cuz he sure as hell isn't in the 3 xmen movies so where did he go!?

I do believe that "tornado" was Quicksilver.

Wolverine's hot and all, but he wasn't intended to be in the way Gambit is. The creation of Gambit was a deliberate attempt at candy for the straight female and gay male fanbase.

Yeah comic book geeks!. Like me. cool
I liked the movie as well. Seemed a bit rushed though like X-3. Was on par with X-3 quality wise. I agree the CGI looked rather cheap. I dunno.
Question anyone. I couldv've swore I saw an early clip of a young storm (guessing here) being picked up/rescued on a beach by someone. Anyone else see this?
Also did anyone see the linked version on-line and if so is there any cool differences?
Now that I paid and saw the real version it would be cool to check out the leaked version. For comparsion of course.


YEAH! if she was in the movie I missed her. but i'm positive i saw her on one of the previews! nod



I swear I thought that was supposed to be her too, but there didn't seem to be any reference actually in the flick. Maybe it was a tiny cameo that got cut?

yuppers. i ended up finding this at comicvine.com
in an interview with producer Lauren Shuler Donner. She mentions that Storm did have a cameo but the scene has been cut from the movie. It seems that the movie is currently just under two hours. Donner also says that it doesn't appear that there will be many extra scenes for the DVD release.

[Edited 5/3/09 11:39am]

Maybe it's my iffy perception, but it seems to me Wolverine ended several years before X1 is supposed to start.

In X1 Xavier indicates that Logan's been wandering for 15 years, so if there's any continuity at all I'd assume there's a decade and a half gap between the two. But that still leaves the question of where Gambit buggered off to.






Not to mention Nightcrawler's unexplained absence in X3, but that was hardly the biggest flaw there.

I never played the game, but I guess Nightcrawler's absence in X3 was explained in the tie-in videogame released for the movie.

It was passable... a bit like X-Men 3.

It had it's moments, but unfortunately they were outweighed by the poor
script/story. Far too rushed in places and poorly thought out. Also, after
the scenes in X2, the whole Weapon X section seemed tame. It worked
way better in X2 where it was implied that the trauma of the operation was
what caused Wolverine's amnesia. Those shots of him covered in blood
with his new metal claws sticking out of his hand and a look of fear and
panic on his face had way more impact than how it was portrayed in
the Wolverine movie. Just like X3, I was left pining for what it could
have been, instead of the mess it actually was.

as for Deadpool, you know... they made a few offhand comments about him not shutting up. but he only had like 3 lines in the whole movie. if that.

and they did kind of fuck him up. he's the kind of character who would work well in a movie of his own, a dark comedy about crazed vigilante-ism, but not now.

not even sure why they bothered to use him in this way, except that he's a character with a Weapon X connection. but then, they didn't use Maverick of Fantomex, so big deal.



Actually Maverick WAS in the movie, he was Agent Zero.

I did not know this untill I looked it up...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agent_Zero


yeah, kinda sorta. but the character of Maverick, David North, wasn't in the movie. his alternate name was just re-used for a generic asian asssassin character.

yeah, i'd say overall that's my biggest complaint. there is great potential in this story (and in the plot elements cherry-picked for X3), but it all seems a little bit wasted.

though i think they did fairly well streamlining Wolverine's ret-convoluted continuity given the disparate and contradictory mess that the comics have given us.

Think about it: If she put her hand on someone's shoulder and caused them to change their behavior, it'd be a lot clearer that she had special powers.

Devoid of special powers, Lynn Collins could make most straight men change our names by purring: "I just LOVE the name, Aloisius. Don't you?"

I wouldn't say he "missed" them. But his m.o. is to find and train young mutants in the use of their powers, especially since it seems he's just starting out. So Gambit and Wolverine don't really fit the bill of what he's looking for.

Fair enough. But surely you can see the difference in how Gambit's presented and how other male X-characters are. There's almost a cheesecake quality to him you usually only see with female comic book characters.

Ugly? No. There's never been an interpretation of Gambit that could rightly be called ugly. He is prettier and younger-looking in the movie, but that doesn't make comic-Remy ugly.

i thought this movie was EL CRAPAMUNDO GRANDE. barf

i thought it was maybe one of the most poorly written stories i've ever encountered. there were enough plot holes to open a golf course, every time the movie raised the stakes for wolverine something would happen to screw up those stakes, thus screwing up our emotional investment in what's happening to the guy; i can't even imagine why they took some the liberties they did to screw up the established comic book characters for this movie. did diamond skin chick REALLY need to be emma frost? did she REALLY need to be the girlfriend chick's sister?

oh, and OH MY GOD: what was that jacked-up looking professor x at the end? he looked like a goddamn creature from the mothership in close encounters. too much botox? too much CGI? hell, too much MSPaint? was that even patrick stewart? whoever it was, that was one creepy-ass face. disbelief

and how many holding-a-body-and-screaming-at-the-heavens scenes did this movie NEED, anyway??? i kept expecting george constanza to scream "KHHAAAAAN!!!", just because it seemed to be the thing to do in this movie. rolleyes

Sweet. I'm royalty now! Jusk kidding. From my appearence you'd never suspect.So I'm told. wink
Anyway, I don't really recall the twins but heard some talk. Who were they supposed to be? The forums I was on didn't seem to know either.
As far as Storm, I agree. That was a highlight for me upon watching the original trailers. That was just criminal cutting her cameo out. confused

Yep, i didn't like that and I didn't like not knowing where a teenage cyclops got his special shades from and why all of a sudden the teacher notices them. there used to be a tv series on Xmen teenagers. can't recall the title. I just hope the director's cut ala DVD answers all our questions. lol

The X-Men teen show was X-Men:Evolutions. I Think.
And I read somewhere that according to the producer or someone like that, the DVD release will not have a lot of deleted scenes. So my guess is it will prolly not answer many of our questions. Oh well. Back to the comic books.

i thought this movie was EL CRAPAMUNDO GRANDE. barf

i thought it was maybe one of the most poorly written stories i've ever encountered. there were enough plot holes to open a golf course, every time the movie raised the stakes for wolverine something would happen to screw up those stakes, thus screwing up our emotional investment in what's happening to the guy; i can't even imagine why they took some the liberties they did to screw up the established comic book characters for this movie. did diamond skin chick REALLY need to be emma frost? did she REALLY need to be the girlfriend chick's sister?

oh, and OH MY GOD: what was that jacked-up looking professor x at the end? he looked like a goddamn creature from the mothership in close encounters. too much botox? too much CGI? hell, too much MSPaint? was that even patrick stewart? whoever it was, that was one creepy-ass face. disbelief

and how many holding-a-body-and-screaming-at-the-heavens scenes did this movie NEED, anyway??? i kept expecting george constanza to scream "KHHAAAAAN!!!", just because it seemed to be the thing to do in this movie. rolleyes

oh, i hated this film. jackman's diamond-hard butt cheeks couldn't even salvage this mess for me. liev schreiber's cute panda-like face came close to melting the ice in my heart, but too little, too late. disbelief

Fair enough. But surely you can see the difference in how Gambit's presented and how other male X-characters are. There's almost a cheesecake quality to him you usually only see with female comic book characters.


I wouldn't characterize him as cheesecake. And he wasn't the only pretty boy mutant in the movie (Wade?).

There's already a script for Magneto so he's probably next. The Gambit thing would be interesting with the feud between the thieves guild and the assasins guild though.

you know, I always thought that Claremont's original idea for Gambit, that he was an avatar for what would turn out to be a teenage Sinister sounded like a pretty stupid idea.


unfortunately, I think I'd have preferred it to the lame-ass we ended up with that was so crap that he had to go and ruin a great character like Rogue.

his crapness was so profound that it spilled over into crapping up another character, who was great.

Glad I'm not the only X-men geek not to see it. I wasn't down on X-men during the 90's, just really busy. So I kinda lost touch for awhile as well.
Truth be told Gambit was after my time as an X-men geek. Aging myself a bit there. cool

That's what I was thinking too. I kinda think that the Professor in the X movies DID know about 3 Mile Island, but also knew that it did not have that much to do with Wolverine's past. Alkali Lake did however, so that's where he sent him.

as we've seen in the past, especially the relatively recent past, Xavier is known to hide or not share information that other characters maybe should or need to know if it hampers or does not further his own agenda.

maybe they're going to be incorporating that into the film version of Xavier.

on the other hand, it's probably just a case of the screenwriter, director and producers not thinking those things out thoroughly, as is the case with so many things in this movie (and X3).

Thanks. I've been on google looking for a description of the ending, and one site says there were three different final scenes. Apparently one of those endings showed Deadpool surviving.



yeah I heard about that but I haven't talked to anyone whose seen it. doubtful that Deadpool would survive after having his head severed...but who knows. Maybe he grabbed it real quick and stuck it back on.


happens to me all the time. you can do wonders with false fingernail glue.

Deadpool is essentially immortal. He can regenerate limbs(and head(s)). A Deadpool spinoff is already in the works:

So I guess they already announced they're making a Deadpool movie. I didn't realize that. I had given up reading X-Men by the time Deadpool came around, so I couldn't care less about the character.

As for the Wolverine movie, I felt like I was OD'ing on hetero stereotypes in that movie. It was fetishistic! (Is that the right word?)

Yeah, that's the ending we got in our theatre. After the credits they show Deadpool's hand reaching from under the rubble and grabbing his head.

unfortunately, I think I'd have preferred it to the lame-ass we ended up with that was so crap that he had to go and ruin a great character like Rogue.

his crapness was so profound that it spilled over into crapping up another character, who was great.

disbelief

I choose to block out that aspect of Rogue's history. mad censored pissed

all that samurai business is a pretty fair chunk of his back story. not a particularly important or interesting chunk, but it's there and writers keep insisting on bringing it up for some reason.

Chris Claremont borrowed pretty liberally from other sources while writing the X-Men, and the Wolverine/Japan connection was one of them. That said, I liked his fiancee, Mariko, a lot; plus I liked how the Japan storyline led us to mohawked Storm.

No shame in watching cartoons. It beats three quarters of the crap on TV meant for grownups.


Hmmm....talking animals and flying superpowered dudes...or a bunch of whiny spoiled friends banging each other's boring asses? It's not even a contest. razz

Exactly. The current cartoon Wolverine & the X-Men is pretty damn good. Though, i'm not really a fan of the mohawked Storm...

Yeah. When a guy is devoid of a face and mouth, he's not so hot anymore. But if he can survive without a head, they should be able to figure out a way to bring back his Ryan Reynolds face.

I think I had given up on the X-Men way before then. I have no idea what happened with the comic post-1992 or so. It's sad, but any time I've tried reading the comic between now and then, it's been incredibly offputting.
