great movie! the action scenes are amazing. Hugh Jackman is superb as the Wolverine and the cinemotagraphy is unparalleled. Make sure you sit through the credits, there is an extra scene that you won't want to miss! Can't wait for X-Men in April.

Overall, good movie. Hugh Jackman was great, as usual. The cinematography was really good. It was, however, quite violent - perhaps, a bit too violent for kids. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

As an X-men fan, I couldn't pass up this Wolverine movie, though I knew that the whole movie happens in Japan. I'm not a big fan of a-white-man-lost-in-Japan-eventually-becoming-the-sole-hero type movies (Remember James Bond in Japanese gown with funny makeup? Please. And Tom Cruise decked out in samurai armor slicing up real samurais? Yuck!) and I'm not even fond of samurai or ninja culture to begin with. Heck, my takeaway from this movie is "Don't trust Japanese during the wartime". But, this isn't a bad action movie in the summer of disappointmenting super-hero movies that started with unwatchable Ironman III, while this Wolverine would rank as one of worst X-men movies in the whole franchise. If you skip this one, you will have no trouble understanding the connection in the next movie. If you're an action movie fan, nonetheless, you'd appreciate the fight scenes, especially the one on a bullet train.

This movie redeems Hollywood Logan after the abyssmal, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" by leaps and bounds even though "Origins" had much more star power, and massacred the original comic book storylines/characters in typical Hollywood executive/studio meets nerddom fashion, "The Wolverine" definitely is entertaining. I am an X-Men nerd but haven't bought a comic book since maybe 94/95 but the character bios couldn't have changed that much...or maybe they have with all of these silly alternative reality subplots that abound in Marvel nowadays BUT, the characters in the movie are not exact...just be mindful of that...if you go in as a fanboy, you will be sorely disappointed but that's with anything that Holly tries to transfer to film. Have fun, it's a great story

This is the Wolverine I think we've all been waiting for. In this movie, he's most like he is in the comic book. Stay until the end of the credits...there's a bonus that will have you cheering out loud in the theater.
