This movie was pretty good. There were a couple of situations which didn't seem reasonable. Why did Gambit interrupt the fight between Wolverine and Sabretooth?

Great action. Of course there's something about the character Wolverine. Mysterious, anti-hero, and emotional complexity.

Again, I didn't completely like the story. I thought the beginning, when he was a kid, could have been done better.

It'd fall in around The Incredible Hulk. If I remember X-Men (2000), then it wouldn't be as great as that movie. I don't remember the other sequels enough.

Watched Wolverine Unleased: The Complete Origins. It talked about various aspects about coming up with the movie and what went into the movie. Like creating a deeper, darker Wolverine. Hugh Jackman putting in such and such time for the role. His bone claws. Things like that.

I watched the Anti-Smoking PSA. Blowing bubbles.

Credits:
There's a scene after the credits roll that shows Deadpool retrieving his head.
