The heart of the film is the hetero menage a trois of Logan, his half brother Victor Creed, and General Stryker. The three have a compelling interplay and each is played to perfection. Logan is torn by the conflict between his fundamental decency and loyalty to a brother who goes increasingly out of bounds. Victor pretty much wants to follow every violent, animal instinct he has, but is also deeply hurt when Logan leaves him. And Stryker, well he is one cold bastard who has the devil's gift for manipulation. It's tough to believe a non-mutant could have any control over these two dangerous brothers, but Danny Huston as the general makes us believe.
In fact, there's not a bad performance in the film, all the way down to Will.I.Am as Wraith. So even when way too many characters are introduced, and the story never really gets itself together, the film feels pretty strong because great actors save scenes that don't deserve them.
I'm not going to bother revisiting all the ways the F/X and storyline fail, because as mentioned above, that's been well trod. Suffice to say I'd have to agree with all the criticisms on that front.
Basically what we're left with is a movie that could have been amazing, but as it stands is far better than it really should be. I'd like to think this bodes well for the next Wolverine which is supposed to be the Japan storyline, but as long as the property is with Fox, I'd really rather they just leave it alone.
