They're all a blend of high-octane action, complex characters, and, let's be honest, a timeline more tangled than the headphones in your pocket, but which X-Men movie takes the number 1 spot?

13. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Imagine you're at an all-you-can-eat superhero buffet, and you're super pumped to load up on some X-Men action. You reach for what looks like a delicious Wolverine dish, only to find out it's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Oh, boy.

This movie is like that piece of cake that looks mouth-watering on the outside but tastes like disappointment. It lands at the bottom of the X-Men pile not because I enjoy being mean, but because it kind of fumbled the superhero ball. Big time.

First off, the movie decided to play fast and loose with our comic book heroes, especially our beloved Deadpool. Imagine expecting Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth, only to get...well, a version of him with his mouth literally sewn shut. Whoever thought that would be a good idea? Fans were not thrilled, to say the least. And it wasn't just Deadpool; the film's handling of other characters and its deviation from the source material left us all a bit annoyed. It's a classic case of expectation vs. reality, where you're expecting a thrilling rollercoaster ride and end up on a kiddie train.

Sure, there were some cool moments and we got to see Hugh Jackman's abs, but in the grand ranking of X-Men cinematic feasts, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the dish that's more style than substance, landing it firmly at the bottom of the list.
