A toss off to the Japanese market

It was a bit much, a little like "Shogun"--the 1980 TV miniseries with Richard Chamberlain. I do NOT follow / read the comic books, although I did as a kid and teenager. I'm now decades past that! Without giving too much away, it's good, but it's still a "comic / cartoon", with some bad writing (e.g. trying to kill someone and then letting them go). I did not like the obeisance to Japan's feudal ways (including putting women in their place), but the tech stuff was cool.

Worth the price of admission

Anymore I rate a movie on if it was worth seeing in the theater or if it could have waited for a rental. The Wolverine was worth seeing in the theater. Good action, good story that kept my interest, and Hugh Jackman does a great job once again.

Was expecting an awesome movie and was NOT disappointed. Plot was unexpected and delightful. Yes, there is a clip in the middle of the credits THAT IS AUDACIOUS! No clip after that so don't stay till the end expecting another. MUST GO!

The Wolverine is full of energy and emotion.

It is the Wolverine movie you want to see. Great action and cinematic greatness. Fight scenes are incredible. This is a must see for any comic fan or a fan of great movies! It is key that people see that Wolverine's gifts come with a curse and he suffers from years of witnessing death and pain. The train scene is one of a kind. The surprising clip in the credits will make you happy.

This movie is boring and I couldn't wait for it to end. As a big Marvel fan and comic book reader, I disliked this movie. The love between characters was not that good. No chemistry between the two. I expected more action. It would have been nice if wolverine would have taken on a bunch of ninjas but they were just for show. Very displeased!
