More Info:
  • Steve Persall

    Wolverine is a solid start to the ever-lengthening summer movie season, when all that matters is the bang and the bucks paid for it.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    There's no shortage of "wow" moments, but the strong liberal political subtext of the trilogy has largely disappeared.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Although it's a quintessential popcorn movie, Wolverine is not mindless. Hood and Jackman bring depth to a comic-book tale of anti-heroes with anger issues.

    How does all this play out for those of us – i.e., me – who have not been staying up nights fretting over the origins of the X-Men and Women? The answer is: Fairly well.

  • Laremy Legel

    You won’t be upset you saw it, you’ll have some fun, you’ll see Wolvie beat the living hell out of a helicopter. These are good things, and it’s why studios are provided huge budgets to play with in the first place. Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Jackman's charisma breathes the fire into Wolverine, not the rather pedestrian script or the by-the-numbers action.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Although the action scenes are competently executed, there's nothing here to raise the pulse.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Sara Vilkomerson

    There is no way I would call this a good movie. But! I was indeed entertained the whole way through, and there were enough genuinely interesting scenes to almost make up for the incredibly clunky moments provided by a very wooden screenplay.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    A perfectly adequate superhero comic-book movie, all explosions, chases, gunfights, sword fights and blood feuds. There’s even a little humor in it.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    So does the film succeed, overall? On some levels. But if all you want is a guilt-free, sci-fi summer pleasure, save your money and wait another week. The crew of the Enterprise is on its way.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    A mix of solid action and an underused cast, with star Hugh Jackman left shouldering the burden of bad lines and forced emotion, it leaves you longing for more editing and a tighter story.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    It's a solid, efficient comic book movie that is content to provide comic book satisfactions of the action and violence variety.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Dean

    Origins is an accomplished slice of comic-book entertainment, full of fights and action set-pieces impressive for a director touching big budget for the first time.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The effect-laden showdowns feel more dutiful than daring, and the rare moments of fun are parceled out frugally, like precious nuggets of adamantium.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The clichéd script doesn't develop the secondary characters or the critical theme of the mutants' alienation.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Nothing here about human nature. No personalities beyond those hauled in via typecasting. No lessons to learn. No joy to be experienced. Just mayhem, noise and pretty pictures.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    "Wolverine" feels enslaved to its many masters - Marvel Comics, Hollywood, and the young men who devour their products - never sidestepping the déjà vu it inspires.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    A chaotic headbanger, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is saved from pure flat-footed blockbuster franchise adequacy by six things, three of them on Hugh Jackman's left hand, three on his right.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It's all a jumble and, worse, a damned impersonal one.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    There's little of the seen-it-all, wise-guy acerbity that made his character in the X-Men trilogy stand apart from his fellow mutants. Here, he just glowers.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine is an O.K., not great, Marvel movie...Wolverine doesn't rise above the level of familiar competence.

    Time Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    The action scenes and plot points frequently defy logic, the apparent assumption being that it's just comic-book stuff and doesn't really need to make sense.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    The most terrifying thing about the movie, really, is that plural: Originsssss. So many mutants, so much time. Thank God we can leave that for another summer.

    NPR Full Review
  • Sukhdev Sandhu

    A compromise, a ghastly hybrid, a film that appears to have pirated and wrecked its own potential.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    X-Men Origins: Wolverine will most likely manage to cash in on the popularity of the earlier episodes, but it is the latest evidence that the superhero movie is suffering from serious imaginative fatigue.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Andrew Pulver

    The furrowed-brow seriousness of X-Men is its least attractive quality, but that is the mood that dominates in this film. It's hard to see how anyone other than hardcore fans will find much to entertain them.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    With some dire blue-screen effects, dizzying tonal instability and a total absence of suspense or originality, "Wolverine" is something of a disaster.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Can everyone stop making moody origin stories now, please? While not a disaster, this isn’t the claws-out, rampaging adventure we hoped for. No-one cares where Wolverine found his jacket — a spin-off with him kicking ass in Japan would have been way more fun.

    Empire Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    The action is perfunctory and forgettable, albeit no more so than the script's range of clichés.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • John Anderson

    "Wolverine" is full of angst, and yet has had virtually all the soul wrung out of it in an effort to create a live-action cartoon. But cartoons are rarely so unwieldy, or force a director -- in this case, the largely unsung Gavin Hood -- to juggle so much impossible plotline.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The problem with “Wolverine” isn’t that the mythology is detailed and potentially confusing — you could say that about any number of movies based on comic books, even some of the good ones. The bigger issue is that “Wolverine” is so uninvolving that you might not care whether you remember what happened 10 minutes ago. Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Wolverine is a noisy mess, an origin/prequel that's nicely full of Jackman's ace glare as Wolverine and seriously killer snarl – The Boy From Aaarrrgh! – but utterly devoid of any of the borderline subversive smarts that made Bryan Singer's "X-Men" outings so contemporarily resonant.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Credit the director for one thing. He could have stretched it to three hours, but he gets in and out of this mess in less than two.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    A couple of halfway decent action scenes do little to distract from the story’s mounting ludicrousness—two words: adamantium bullets—or a conclusion that’s only a little more satisfying than a projector breakdown. Maybe.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    "Wolverine" is silly and typical, not in spite of but because it bonds an undeveloped family feud onto the main character's renegade story.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    The X-Men franchise takes a giant leap backward and off a cliff with its fourth offering.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The movie drills itself into our skulls, which are all too vulnerable to such an assault, though I must say my brain glazed over and my heart turned adamantine while the stupidities of this action thriller played themselves out.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Even by the standard of a fourth-in-a-series summer blockbuster, Wolverine, the first X-Men movie directed by Gavin Hood ( Rendition), is remarkably lame.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Denby

    The story, devised by David Benioff and Skip Woods, is largely meaningless, and the emotions are no more than functional—they set up the next fight.
