I personally think he was an awesome Sabretooth. Certainly better than the guy who played him in X-Men 1.

I agree i wanted to watch Victor more than Wolverine in the movie. He was freaking amazing

He just had an awesome "badass" feel to him.
i liked him better than any other character in that movie.

I agree. He should have been more bloodthirsty.

Her dialogue really sucked, not her fault, but doesn't help.

Well as I've said a few times already the writing in this movie was far from decent...but I think she did better with what she was given than most could.

Liev Schreiber i think was an excellent choice to portray the role asa Sabretooth. He gave the Character more depth and in (in the movie) explained why he was the way he was! If there is ever to be another movie that involves Sabretooth, please dont look any further than Liev Schreiber!
 Bad ass Attitude, Fight Scenes and No Remorse what so ever! Gotta Love a Good Villian!!!!

Lieb was awesome. I only wish he had MORE screen time. Such a good character. And he really beat Wolvy's ass haha.

Really? I thought her performance was kinda lame.

I also couldn't stand will.i.am. He seriously made me cringe.

Yeah, I definitely thought Liev Schriber really added an air of menace that Tyler Mane, at nearly 7 feet tall, didn't come close to having in the first X-Men movie.

He is a better Sabretooth than Hugh Jackman is Wolverine.

That is not correct. There is no one else that could pull of Wolverine as well as he has.

yeah....but Clint is a way better actor.
#32 Posted by Nyogtha (353 posts) - - Show Bio

I was so glad they had him play it. Liev has a eerie quality to him when he played Victor and that was perfect for his ferocious nature. 

#33 Posted by Andras (2644 posts) - - Show Bio

He was one of the few good things about the movie

#34 Posted by Vance Astro (91220 posts) - - Show Bio

He was better than Tyler Mane but still didn't register as Sabretooth to me.He looks like a tall vampire Wolverine.

He acted a lot like him, but his voice seemed a little too different. I think it would be more effective if he had a deeper, cold, snarling voice.  
 
and he should have been blonde

I think that Liev Schreiber nailed the mentality of Sabretooth, but did not nail the physicality of Victor Creed.

#38 Posted by ComicMan24 (147090 posts) - - Show Bio

He wasn't bad. He was definitely better than other things in this movie.

#39 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Of all the things in this movie, I can honestly say that he was the only actor that made me wanna stay in the theater. This was a terrible movie, but Liev IS Sabretooth. More so than Tyler Mane.

@Gambit1024: Tyler Mane was the actor in the first X-Men movie?
#41 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio
@ComicMan24:  
 
I'm pretty sure he was. I'll wiki it just to be safe, but I'm pretty sure it was him. 
#42 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Yup it was him: 
 
 After retiring from wrestling, he appeared in numerous films, including How to Make a Monster (as Hardcore), Joe DirtThe Scorpion King,Troy (as Ajax), Hercules (as Antaeus), X-Men as Sabretooth (which was his film debut), and The Devil's Rejects (in the uncredited role of Rufus). The role of Sabretooth was initially intended for Mane's former wrestling tag team parter, Kevin Nash, but was awarded to Mane due to Nash's scheduling conflicts. Nash would, however, get a small role in a later Marvel Comics film, The Punisher.
