Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It's now May 1st, which means the summer movie season has arrived, and this year's opener is another superhero movie - X-Men Origins: Wolverine. We all know Wolverine is a badass character, but the big question is if they really did the best they could've with his origin story or if this is another mess on par with X-Men 3? Were fan favorites Gambit and Deadpool just as awesome? An entertaining action extravaganza? Or was this a screw up from start to finish? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

To fuel the fire, I honestly enjoyed this more than I thought I would. My expectations had been lowered considerably going in, and I actually found it quite entertaining, a big dumb comic book action movie and good way to kick off this summer. The scene with Deadpool at the beginning was awesome, and although I know Weapon XI was stupid, that fight scene at the end on top of the nuclear reactor was also badass. There are hints of a great story, mainly in the first half, and it's not perfect, but I don't think it's a terrible movie. I'd say it was better than X3 and on the level of X1 for me personally, but that's just my own opinion.
What did you think of X-Men Origins: Wolverine? Any better or worse than X-Men 3?
