Actually, Kinetic energy is the "extra" energy an object has while in motion. Hence the "boom" on impact aspect of him throwing cards.
How he can use that to do things like "phase" his staff in order to clime up walls & detonate an explosion that destroys an entire block with his staff (without actually destroying the staff itself) eludes me in the context of his "comic" book abilities.
But this is the movie version, so it can always be explained away with a simple "his powers work slightly different".
The helicoptering of his staff when jumping off that building was cheesy as @#%^ though.
I barely noticed that helicoptering myself though, and I believe he used a staff in the comics too at times. Although his cards were always his favourite, I wonder what happened to him in the comics, haven't read them in quite a while and not all that many recent ones are to be found on the marvel site.
I was a bit disappointed myself in the movie, it's all just too much for one movie and the final fight against weapon XI is just too fast.
And Deadpool was much more interesting before the change.
Hugh Jackman is still a great Wolverine. Liev Schriber's good throughout most of it, but was considerably un-Sabretoothy at the end. The kid who played Gambit was actually pretty good, but I had a few gripes about him.
Actually, it's not really that unlike something that did happen in some comic too. Although it's probably for the best that they didn't go into the whole "paralel evolution out of canines or cats", I do feel they did the whole eternal feud between the two fairly well. Lack of time to deepen it out more though, it works a heck of a lot better in the comics, way more reasons in there for that feud.
I liked Schriber's performance, compared to X-Men 1, that's not very hard, they really didn't do Sabretooth justice then.
In the movie, he can "magically" levitate them & throw them around. He can jump incredible distances, jump from incredible heights, & he can even run up walls. His "movie" powers are not really explained.
Not exactly, he just throws them in an arch really fast, using the energy he puts in them to propell them towards Wolverine. All just really, really fast so it looks like they are hovering. Irrelevant really,
There is a whole story line where millions of mutants lose their abilities due to the Scarlet Witch. The Blob was one of them.
And then there's the story line where Sinister manages to switch off everyone's mutated DNA element, making every single one human.
I'm trying to think of when that happened before, but other than the mutant dampening field Magneto used in his fortress, I can't really think of anytime, although I seem to recall it did.
The plot touches on the Origin story, his Team 7 days (W/William Stryker in charge), & of course Weapon X. There are extended cameos by Cyclops & the White Queen (who is now Silverfox's sister). Toad & Xavier make short appearances as well.
Wasn't that Paige Guthrie instead of the White Queen? Although Emma can change her skin to diamond and Paige had to shed skin to change so I suppose it would be the White Queen, would be fitting to see the pair of them together too.
