An awful film, obsessed with continuity, yet lacking a coherent story. Hugh Jackman was one of the most enjoyable parts of the first three films, but he can’t carry such a dim, thin, bizarre film like this on his own.
I don’t understand why what is ostensibly an action movie is so hyper-concerned about continuity. I watched the first three films right before watching this one, and I still struggled to make sense of how everything fitted; it felt like watching deleted scenes rather than a coherent film in its own right.
The opening credits sequence was neat, and Jackman is likable as ever, but everything else is just an absolute mess.
I give it half a claw, and a series of explosions.
