Perhaps the blogger was a Marvel fan but he was clearly no Wolverine fan.  I saw the movie and I enjoyed it.  The blogger's says the movie didn't make sense to him.  It made perfect sense I'm wondering what he missed when he spend half the show in the lobby figuring out which candy to buy.

Really? Because the... (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!)


part where the Silver Samurai drills into Logan's claws to take his healing power away made so many loads of sense?

(End SPOILER ALERT)

Overall I enjoyed the film, but there were a number of spots where I wish someone had just said 'Wait a minute, how the fark is that even possible?)

I enjoyed almost every part of the movie other than the part INeedAName mentioned.

That kind of made me go "Who the fark thought THIS was a good idea?"

But other than that... i thought it was an honest rendition of a comic book movie.

Could have been a bit more consistant with the "Shingen" character...

By the end of the movie, his allegiances seemed to kind of be switching at random.

As opposed to a guy with a metal skeleton and retractable claws who is essentially immortal due to accelerated healing?

I love comic books and comic book movies but I sure as hell don't expect them to be 'possible'.

Bone marrow is integral to the human immune system.  Those were the only bones of his that were readily available, what with the other ones being covered in both adamantium and muscle.

What I don't get, if you have the choice between the Mars Landing, the Dungeon, and the Nurse's Office; and you also have an injured wolverine at hand, wouldn't the Mars Landing be the worst choice?  The Nurse's Office might have some prop medical equipment that could actually be used, and the Dungeon needs to at least have a first aid kit.

The problem is that adamantium is indestructible.  Even in the comics, Silver Samuri's abilities don't allow him to cut adamantium.  Minor point, I guess, but I jumped out at me.

I thought to myself as I watched the movie: "I would have picked the Mars Landing one too!" Picking either of the others implies that you're hoping to get lucky and that you have a fetish. Picking the Mars Landing one shows that you're making the best of a bad situation.

Ummm, Mariko was the most serious relationship that Wolverine has had in the comics. She looks younger then she is, and Jackman's is getting to old for the part.

But it CAN apparently puncture adamantium if it's in bullet form. And then Wolverine's healing factor will actually regrow that adamantium so that it looks like it never happened in time for X-1.

If Wolverine has already been given the adamantium skeleton, doesn't that mean that his claws are covered with the metal as well? And how does cutting into his claws to get to the bone marrow in order to stop his regenerative ability work? He has other sources of bone marrow that would be completely unaffected. Or did Silver Samurai only try to steal some marrow to copy the power?

/Not seen the movie
 
2013-08-05 09:50:09 AM  
I saw it, and can honestly say it's worse than the first one. Once again, everything is fine till the third reel, then they just make shiat up as they go. Additionally, GI Joe: Retaliation was better than this movie.

I'll not post spoilers, but seriously, they simply took a bunch of names from the Wolverine mini-series and applied them where ever they see fit. Any character reaction is simply: "Because that's how they acted in the mini-series" but without things like character motivation, background or other reasons why.

You know, I mostly thought the movie was so mindless that I didn't even bother to question that. Now that I think about it, if they had simply said that the process required extracting Wolverine's bone marrow, it might fly. Cutting off his claws is probably the least gruesome way to get to his bone marrow. Of course, the idea that you can transfer his healing powers with a bone marrow transplant is pretty stupid anyway.

Adamantium is made from vibranium, so it's stronger than vibranium.

Well, you can cure paralysis by drinking fetus juice...  Which is the first thing I thought of.


The movie made my head hurt... Why, when fleeing the Yakuza thugs, would you go to the poorly defended house in Nagasaki instead of your families ninja guarded mountain fortress?  ... especially after having the awkwardly crammed in scene where the movie makes sure the audience knows about the ninja guarded mountain fortress?  And why does the tracking bug from the Matrix cause Wolverine to lose his powers?... and instead of cutting it out, couldn't he just have held an open microwave oven in front of his chest?  And why does he just let himself get shot by rope arrows instead of you know, turning right or left and using a side street?  And holy crap, why the elaborate plot to lure him to ninja fortress to steal his bone marrow when you could have just chopped off a finger or something while you had him out cold the eight or so other times in the movie?

Well, I'm not a Marvel nerd, but according to this, the anti-metal variety of antarctic vibranium can cut through adamantium.  So he could have made the sword from that.
Captain America's shield is a mixture of adamantium and vibranium (which are different things), and is stronger than Wolverine's beta adamantium.  Theoretically the head of a Japanese megacorporation could have applied his near-unlimited resources towards recreating the formula that made Captain America's shield.

And just to keep the nerd hand-wringing going...

I thought it was determined in the one of the earlier X-Men movies (I think it's X2, but I'm probably wrong) adamantium can be cut and handled as long as it was hot, so it might not be that much of a stretch to think that whatever was in that hot sword could have cut through it.

I thought that was only in the casting process.  Once it switches from liquid to solid, it's pretty much indestructible (I haven't read anywhere that you can heat it up to the point where you can change its state back to liquid.  Then again, it's been a while since I've really read comics, so who knows what you can do with it now... hell, they even have different types of adamantium these days).

That's pretty much the rule. Adamantium can only be heated and processed in it's raw form. Once cooled, it is indestructible and has a melting point so high, you would pretty much need to dip it into the sun to get it liquid again.

EXCEPT that Vibranium doesn't exist in the FoX-Men universe. That's in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Marvel Studios doesn't seem to keen to give up Vibranium, as it is replacing Adamantium in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Don't mix up X-Men movies with Marvel Studios stuff. They're not related. In Wolverine's world there's no such thing as Vibranium because there was no Howard or Tony Stark. Howard discovered it (but lacked the technology in his time to produce more than was used in Cap's shield), and Tony perfected it (and used it to stabilize his Arc Reactor.)

I've read comment after comment about how awesome the end credits scene was and your comment pushed me over the edge, I just watched the clip.  I guess I don't get the excitement.  X-Men the Last Stand made it so I never wanted to see that same cast play those same characters ever again, X-Men First Class was a breath of fresh air in that regard.  Seeing those three together again sealed it, no interest whatsoever in any new X-Men movie.  For me it's akin to seeing a teaser trailer at the end of a movie showing Maguire, Grace, and Franco getting back together to do another Spider-Man movie.

I dont get any of it, the Marvel universe says Adamantium can't be destroyed or manipulated in any way after its 8min? process, there are different versions of Adamantium of which Wolverines claws are the Beta type but Magneto can just change it at will because thats not considered manipulating it?? If you're gonna take one or the other side so strongly then you've already lost the argument because by Marvels own rules it argues itself.


Seeing how much this stuff costs why make it thicker at all if its really indestructable, why use so much on claws and swords if a smaller than piano wire amount cuts the same without a risk of breaking? Thats just bad business...

How did he know they were dropping an Atomic Bomb? That shiat was super duper top secret and some grunt on the ground stuck in a prison camp for who knows how long would never have known about it. The mere fact he's a grunt makes it impossible for him to know what's going to happen. For that matter, how did the Japanese soldiers know what was coming? After he's burned to a crisp, why did all his hair (on his head and body) grow back tom exactly how it was before.

Nagasaki was the second city we nuked.  Those dudes knew full and well what happened to Hiroshima.  (also Japanese citizens were warned to evacuate those cities even before the Hiroshima bombing).

I figure Wolverine was there just to give a report of what the bombing looked like from ground level (the government knew about his healing powers and employed him in covert ops, at least according to the cartoon series from the 1990s.  I don't remember X-Men Origins well enough to remember that part of his movie back story.).
Or he might have been there to rescue those American POWs we saw being released, but got there too late to do anything?

Yes, but there's a big difference between 75 v 30 (or 40, but Hollywood would have a problem with that) and 75 v 18. At least 75 v 30 involves two adults.

HST's Dead Carcass: Nexzus: I enjoyed it quite enough, though I don't read the comics. The scene of Wolverine burned to a crisp after the nuke was particularly harrowing. Any theories as to how he filled in his time from D-Day to the Nagasaki bombing?

Some of the fighting had too much shakey cam and quick cuts. Almost as bad as Bourne 2.

And the credits teaser - Even though I had read about it earlier; oh my God, I giggled like a schoolgirl.

How did he know they were dropping an Atomic Bomb? That shiat was super duper top secret and some grunt on the ground stuck in a prison camp for who knows how long would never have known about it. The mere fact he's a grunt makes it impossible for him to know what's going to happen. For that matter, how did the Japanese soldiers know what was coming? After he's burned to a crisp, why did all his hair (on his head and body) grow back tom exactly how it was before.


If they even moderately follow his backstory, Wolverine was special ops during WWII and was privy to all sorts of classified intel.

serial_crusher: I don't remember X-Men Origins well enough to remember that part of his movie back story.).


They glossed over his WWII service in the montage. It's a shame Marvel can't use Wolverine for Cap. America 2. Would be cool to see some of their WWII adventures together in flashback.

Closest you get is Season 1 of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. During Cap's origin episode, Logan is a member of the Howling Commandos. I think someone tells him to hurry up and he says something like "Workin' on it, bub" and that's it.

/still better than anything Fox has done with the character...
