Cinema Sins‘ latest, “Everything Wrong with X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” tears into a movie that many fans agree led to a severe drop in faith for Fox’s superhero franchise. Just in time for what could be Bryan Singer’s redeeming entry with X-Men: Days of Future Past, it’s time to look back at what can go wrong in a movie about one of Marvel Comics’ most loved characters.
The first of many problems is that the film seems to start out by showing us flashbacks of stories that may have been much more exciting, as James Howlett and his step brother Victor Creed fight side by side in several wars throughout history. Throughout those flashbacks, we are represented with another problem the fans instantly hated. They replaced Sabretooth’s actor from the original X-Men with Liev Schreiber, a guy who doesn’t look anywhere near as menacing.
Of course, the video “Everything Wrong with X-Men Origins: Wolverine” pokes fun at other characters ruined by the movie’s apparent lack of care for the source material, including previous movies. Wolverine’s escape from the Weapon X facility is drastically different from what we saw in X-2: X-Men United, and all they had to do was re-use footage to keep it intact.

The characters it managed to ruin were Sabretooth, Deadpool, and to smaller degrees Wolverine and Gambit. Gambit was mostly saved by the fact that he barely appeared in the movie for more than a few minutes, but fans were given a complete middle finger by what they called Deadpool.
We have already stated previously how they can fix Deadpool to at least make him recognizable in a solo movie.
So many things in this movie didn’t make sense, and Cinema Sins certainly points out several of them. The movie was so bad it took almost 14 minutes to point it all out.
Do you think they found “Everything Wrong” with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, or did you notice something they didn’t?
