Heroic Hugh Jackman “breathes the fire into Wolverine” (Miami Herald) — with a vengeance! This pulse-pounding action thriller sinks razor-sharp adamantium claws into the mysterious origins of Logan/Wolverine: his epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed/Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), and the ominous Weapon X program that unleashes his primal fury. Along the way, Wolverine also encounters legendary new mutants, including Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Gambit (Taylor Kitsch). You’ll go “berserker” for this deeper, darker, more-spectacular-than-ever chapter of the X-Men saga!

The action is questionable: A helicopter crashes and explodes then, somehow, explodes again! There are so many smash cuts in the fighting sequences it's obvious the choreographer phoned it in. Also, the majority of the "fight" sequences consist of beefy dudes standing around posing in their best can't-fit-through-a-door look.
Some of the casting is bizarre: Why not cast the guy who looks exactly like Hugh Jackman as James/Logan/Wolverine's actual father instead of the cuckolded husband? For Gambit, at least try to cast someone who can attempt to do a Creole accent. And good job making one of the coolest X-Men look like an absolute douche by giving him a wizard staff.
Deadpool... where do we start? Do we need to start since this has been so widely covered? No. At least Ryan Reynolds has atoned for this nonsense.
And, finally, the story: Gee. Spoilers ahead I guess. After joining up with Stryker and a squad of mutants who murder an entire village for some adamantium, Logan figures out he's not cool with Stryker's particular brand of murder and decides to ditch the murdering mutant squad. Years later, Logan very smartly trusts Stryker to experiment on him just so Logan can get "the tools" needed to kill his brother (who totally by necessity killed Logan's girlfriend instead of just going after Logan - that wasn't suspicious or strange at all)! And surprise! Stryker has nefarious plans for Logan and SAYS THEM OUT LOUD so Logan hears. Somehow, later, Logan is still shocked to find out that he's been further manipulated because his brother and Stryker are working together *clutches pearls*! If you can make it this far in the film and still be surprised by anything that happens then your brain has checked out completely.
Some of these issues alone don't make a film unwatchable. But paired and stacked and mashed together in one film it becomes intolerable. Skip this... watch Logan (2017). It's a far superior film.
The theme of the film is laid out right during the opening credits. It shows Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Sabretooth (Live Schreiber) as being almost immortal living from the America’s revolutionary times up to the present. Sabretooth was the wild won who enjoyed killing, while Wolverine tried to be his conscience and control him. After one bloody escapade in a Vietnamese village the two are recruited by Colonel William Stryker (Danny Hust) to join a special operations team made up of mutants. Later Stryker injects adamantium into Wolverine’s body in the Weapons X project as Logan becomes known as Wolverine.
That was a great start and the added bonus was that tons of X-Men/mutant characters were also included. The special forces team was made up of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), Blob (Kevin Durand), John Wraith (Will.I.Am), Bolt aka Chris Bradley (Dominic Monaghan), and Agent Zero aka David North (Daniel Henney). Later Silver Fox (Lynn Collins), Gambit (Taylor Kitsch), Emma Frost (Tahyna Tozzi), and Cyclops (Tim Pocock) all shop up. It was like a Marvel fan’s dream.
With all that how could things go wrong? Well they ruined everything at the end. Logan faces off against Deadpool who looked so bad that The Deadpool movie even mocked it.
If you can just ignore the final fight than X-Men Origins: Wolverine is still a very good film.

The opening 10 mins showing the boy James Logan and his brother was interesting but the plot was all a bit tired. After fighting through the ages (Civil, WWI, WWII and Vietnam) James and his brother Victor join a 'special unit'. The unit oversteps the mark and Logan quits. Cue lovey bit until he's found and dragged into the Weapon-X program.
The plot is all a bit cliched but my major gripe, similar to the animated Hulk vs series, is the fight scenes. There are a few CGI moments which would be acceptable in a lesser budget movie (think Daredevil... which I quite liked) but should have been picked up during an edit but, worse than that, is the indestructability of Wolverine, Weapon XI and, to some degree, Sabretooth. I know it's one of Wolverine's powers but it was done pretty well in the X-Men movies. Here there just seems no danger. They're sliced, diced, shot, crushed, smashed etc and simply 'recover' to be repeated.
The love interest keeps reminding Wolverine he's a human not an animal so, at some point, you know he's going to go feral... which just seems as if he snarls a bit and then resorts to smashing, slicing and crushing again.
If you like brutal action over plot you'll like this more than I did.
