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.

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

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

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...

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.

Y U No Lady Deathstrike?

By MedRed
The Wolverine flirted dangerously close to one of Wolverine's greatest foes (nevermind the pitiful iteration of Lady Deathstrike that made an appearance in X2). There are elements of Wolverine's...

Stay for the credits!

By WebsiteWorld_com
The best part of the whole movie is after the credits! :-) I think the movie is good. I can see how some may have rated it so-so, but I thought it was a great movie. It's definitely not working paying...

Not as good as the first I thought

By rodstohogs
Seen the first one a few times and love it.. I struggled to stay awake a big chunk of this move of this movie. A lot of it was story telling with tons of flash backs and getting to know the new...

Great film that leads to endless sequels...

By cocosilk
I think my header title says it all. Don't rush out of the theater the moment you see the first set of movie credits. There is a bonus scene that explains my header title....

Best Wolverine movie yet!

By rafmal44

Great movie, close to the comic

By littlepharoah
First off, this isn't the X-men treatment, this is one of Marvel's serious stories brought to the screen. If you're expecting all catch-phrases and no dialog, don't see this movie. If you want to...

Too Japanese Centric

By rulette1997online
The story and plot of the Wolverine returning to what he does best was Awesome, but the entire setting of this movie was in Japan and it had way too many Japanese actors that you couldn't understand...


By curlyspyman
There's a lot in the movie a obvious fan will not like but remember, its a character not the actual comic sooo the movie is really awesome. Lots of things happen that your like "YES!!! only wolverine"...
