Goofs

The sharpness of Logan's claws changes to suit the situation in different scenes. The claws easily slice though the metal wire fence when fighting Mystique but he is able to pull her towards him with the metal chain stuck on his claws without slicing through the chain. (Also, when on the Statue of Liberty his claws slice easily though the spikes on the statue's head but when he is climbing up the side with his claws they only puncture the statue they don't slice though it once they're in, even though all his body weight must be hanging on his claws alone.)

Quotes

[first lines]
Prof. Charles Francis Xavier: [narration] Mutation: it is the key to our evolution. It has enabled us to evolve from a single-celled organism into the dominant species on the planet. This process is slow, and normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward.

A Treat For The Eyes & Ears
21 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Special-effects and terrific 5.1 surround sound are the highlights of this science fiction film. And what highlights they are - tremendous in both categories, at least for 2000 when this film and DVD came out. At the time, they were the best special-effects I had ever seen, but strides are being made so fast in that category that every few years we movie fans are stunned at something new we see. Audio-wise, the rear speakers come into to play as well as any movie I've heard.

As for story, once the beginning plugs for evolution and political correctness are over with, it is a simple good guys-trying-to-get-the-bad guys fare. It's pure escapist fun made so with tons of sci-fi effects. The characters aren't particularly involving, either the "good guys" or the "bad guys." The two leads, played by Hugh Jackman and Anna Paquin, should have been, but weren't. Jackman's "Logan/ Wolverine" always seemed to be pouting and angry, but I guess he's a favorite of females.

For me and most males, Rebecca Romjin-Stamos was a treat for the eyes. Her outfit was something to behold.

If profanity bothers you, the film was treat in that department, too, as there was very little. Obviously, this film was popular enough to spawn not only a sequel but more in the making.
