Really good movie, but very disappointing in terms of action.
Agreed. Fun take on the original idea form the classic storyline. Solid film, probably not quite as good as X-men: First Class in my opinion but a fun entertaining entry non-the-less.

Echoing your sentiment regarding the final action set piece from the 70's. It did seem odd that we never got a full on fight scene from the classic sentinels. But, at the same time, we never have an X-men team assembled in the 70's either. It also seems like Wolverine never got a big action sequence in this film either. He has the one brief scene where he pops the gangsters. But, from that point on it seems like the story finds different ways of removing him from each big action sequence. I'm not complaining, but it was odd.

I didn't hate it, but it was a let down. Not as bad as Pacific Rim mind you.
If you can find a blockbuster action film worse than pacific rim I will eat my underwear.

Wolverine was practically useless in the movie in general. He literally delivered the message, which was needed, then served no further purpose. Does that work with the story? I suppose, but it is a poor use of literally the most popular character from the series.

I like Hugh Jackman as wolverine. He reigns it in a bit, but if someone played him like in the comics, it would be obvious and corny on film. Not a fan of some of the wolverine movies, but I enjoyed the X-men movies (except the third one).

Really? I thought the trailers were laughable at best. I remember my friends and I snickering at them in the theaters and agreeing that the film had an outside chance to obtain the "it's so bad it's good" mantle.

Honestly, this doesn't even strike me as a marketer. I think its just a script spamming the same boring autoposts to hundreds of message boards.

I am just confused why you thought a football message board would be the target audience for this movie

Is there any male over the age of like 12 that has any desire to see this movie?

"Boys night out, lets go check out that new fairytale flick with Angelina Jolie.....hell yea"

Makes sense. Just seems like a lot of effort for very little to zero payoff.

Rotten Tomatoes has it at 50% from Critics, but 75% from audiences. Sounds like a rental to me!
