12. 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (2009)

Hugh Jackman’s first solo outing as Wolverine is also his worst. A prequel to the X-Men trilogy, it follows Logan during his days fighting with his brother Victor (Sabre Tooth), Team X and first meeting with Colonel Stryker. Jackman’s performance as Wolverine can’t be faulted, but the storyline is pretty meh, proving that sometimes there can be too much backstory, and the treatment of Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson was utterly abysmal. Let’s just forget this one ever happened. (Credit: 20th Century Fox)
