Hugh Jackman steals the show as the lupine superhero of the X-Men series. Among the X-Men, Jackman's Wolverine takes pride of place with his long metal claws and short temper. As Wolfie joins the misfits and mutants who seek shelter with Professor X (Patrick Stewart), who wants to integrate them into human society, he must deal with Prof X's counterpart, Magneto (Ian McKellen), who plans to destroy humanity. Adapted from Stan Lee's Marvel Comics series by director Bryan Singer, the 2000 movie is loaded with smart special effects, notably the fight between Wolverine and himself (don't ask, just dig in).
