Goofs

When Victor and Logan are both on the tower fighting Weapon XI, it is clear that the tower side changes when XI begins attacking the 2 brothers. When XI jumps over Victor and Logan, the tower side marks that its on the right side of Victor, but in the next scenes it changes to his left side. Later in the battle scene Victor turns himself to get XI by his neck. See more »

Quotes

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. See more »

Much better than the reviews, actions packed FUN
4 May 2009 | by goods116See all my reviews

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.
