Meh. I know my sisters loved Wolverine, so I won’t bad mouth it too much here, but the whole thing felt undercooked to me; plus, the inconsistency of Sabretooth being Wolverine’s intelligent brother, compared with the radically different conceptualization of the character in the first film of this same series, was jarring for me. It opens well (the first 20 minutes got my hopes up), but after that I thought the storyline was a rambling mess. Sorry. The motorcycle chase was cool, though. And if I graded the film on Hugh’s torso, it’d be different. My grade: C.

In 2006 I wrote and co-starred in Y-Men: Students United, a sketch comedy parody for Divine Comedy at Brigham Young University. Enjoy!
