This film was very poorly done. Character development was very bad, as was the story. I don't believe they handled this movie very maturely. The X men films were once so much more. But ever since the dissapointment of X men 3, this franchise has just completely faltered. However, the action sequences are very cool, and the acting is very good. I have to hand it to Hugh Jackman for trying to stay true to this character, but he seems a bit exhausted after 4 films(he's the first actor since Christopher Reeve to play a superhero throughout 4 films of a superhero franchise). I give this **1/2 out of 5

You can ask anyone to name just one of the X-MEN and 9 time out of 10 they will say Wolverine! It's about time that they got it right and focused on what many will say is the strength behind the X-men.

the movie isn't even about him so let it go. And my take on it is that Gambit is a HAK any way. That and i do belive he plays a bad guy. So that just proves that he is what i said he was!
