When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
Two mutant brothers, Logan and Victor, born 200 years ago, suffer childhood trauma and have only each other to depend on. Basically, they're fighters and killers, living from war to war through U.S. history. In modern times, a U.S. colonel, Stryker, recruits them and other mutants as commandos. Logan quits and becomes a logger, falling in love with a local teacher. When Logan refuses to rejoin Stryker's crew, the colonel sends the murderous Victor. Logan now wants revenge. Written by

For the X-Men trilogy, when the 20th Century Fox logo fades away, the 'X' in the logo stays for a second longer before it also fades away. For this film, the 'X' disappears with the rest of the word. See more »
I have no idea as to why people bash Wolverine. I think its an extremely well made, highly entertaining movie with great acting and a fitting storyline. Its also pretty dark and uncompromising in many scenes.
The fight scenes are brutal and intense which makes them really awesome.
I was actually surprised by some of the plot twists. Great.
The opening title sequence should win some kind of award. Gave me goose bumps. The editing is perfect.
Only complaint is the few plot holes towards the X-men trilogy.
