Ok look, I can see why people liked the X-men trilogy, if you know nothing about the history of the comics then I guess they could be enjoyable. Personally being a huge X-men fan for a long time I can safely say I thought the trilogy was awful. They literally couldnt have got the story any more wrong than they did. Really they couldnt.
But having said that I was hoping that this was going to be good as I did like Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. So I went in to watch this with fingers crossed. Oh my dear god what a pile of bilge. Once again I dont think they could have got it more wrong.
Hugh Jackman was good as Wolverine and Ryan Reynolds was spot on as the merc with a mouth (in the first few minutes) but after the opening scene it just went so very wrong. They even managed to make Wolverine seem like a dull character. And how did they come up wth Sabretooth being related to him??? *sigh*
Its a shame cos I liked Liev Shrieber as Sabretooth, he was very feral and did a good job.
The person who cast Taylor Kitsch as Gambit should be lynched, they ruined one of my all time favourite characters. I wont go in to it in detail suffice to say Gambit is supposed to be Cajun and he didnt sound one bit like it.
The whole deal with Blob was just embarrasing they managed to completely ruin Deadpool at the end. Why did they give him all those stupid powers??? It never ceases to amaze me how badly they get the story wrong in X-men films. I could go on and on.
But forgetting that for a sec, the CG was awful. some really bad effects throughout. I almost burst out laughing when he pops his claws in the bathroom. The plot was all over the place not to mention the ending with the adamantium bullets?? Oh god I literally couldnt believe they really put that in.
My advice if you like the comics or know anything about the real story with the X-men is ignore this at all costs it will infuriate you.
Go play the game its actually not half bad. A hell of a lot better than this mockery.
Although if you just want something with a plot that makes no sense and some explosions and people hitting each other then maybe youll like it. Maybe.
