Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Apart from Khodchenkova, who displays the acting acumen of a runway model and gives new meaning to the term Russian mole (she's the villainous vixen of the tale, suited up in high heels and slinky, scaly couture), the cast of The Wolverine is uniformly good.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
It's simply a more focused scenario than usual, full of violence done up with a little more coherence and visceral impact than usual.

Boston Globe

By Tom Russo
Jackman spends enough time compellingly playing stranger in a strange land that you’ll put up with a few unwanted doses of the old familiar.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The Wolverine shows that, while originality would be nice, a little novelty and enthusiasm in the presentation of the familiar can be quite enough.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Richard Roeper
The Wolverine is one of the better comic-book movies of 2013, thanks in large part to an electric performance by Hugh Jackman.

Variety

By Peter Debruge
The Wolverine boasts one of the best pulp-inspired scripts yet. It’s still full of corny dialogue...but there’s a genuine elegance to the way it establishes Logan’s tortured condition and slowly brings the character around to recovering his heroic potential, methodically setting up and paying off ideas as it unfolds.

Slant Magazine

By R. Kurt Osenlund
This may be the year's best superhero movie because, for a sufficient amount of time, it doesn't feel like a superhero movie at all.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
This pissed-off man of Adamantium claws is stalking new ground (Japan), and his fight with yakuza on top of Tokyo's speeding bullet train is a wowser.
