9. X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Hugh's hair was blown like they were making a shampoo commercial. The CGI claws looked like aluminium foil. An endurance test for Hugh's commitment to playing Wolverine. Worst X-Men movie ever made...

8. X-Men: The Last Stand

You can see the light slowly fade from Hugh's eyes throughout this movie. Third time was not lucky for the X-Men. Wolverine got lost in the wash of too many characters and Hugh was like, whatevs.


7. X-Men: Days of Future Past

It's more fun watching Hugh eat pizza like Wolverine than viewing any scene from this movie. Wolverine travels back in time to save the X-Men franchise from itself. It's 131 minutes of Wolverine turning the series off and on again like a busted computer.

4. The Wolverine

Hugh uses his body as a human shield against the blast of a nuclear bomb, and later, propels himself forward like a human bullet while on top of a train in Japan. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?


3. X-Men

20th Century Fox.

The breakout performance that started it all *wipes tear*. Hugh got the role after his buddy Russell Crowe passed on the opportunity. From the minute Hugh popped his claws as Wolverine we knew it was meant to be.

2. X-Men 2

Hugh unleashes Wolverine's fury in spectacular style, and ensures he is the only person qualified to play the role. Every scene with Wolverine is dynamite, especially the attack on X-Mansion, where he goes into a berserker rage.
