Thought it would be much better

This one let me down, and I am a big fan of X-Men movies. Dialogue was weak and it just seemed like they tried too hard. The movie felt overcooked and far from memorable. Save your money.

Sushi & Claws...

By detrichwong
Written July 27, 2013
Objectively, this is more of an action/ martial arts film, rather than anything else. The entire Mutant theme is somewhat underplayed, while the Japanese Samurai, Yakuza, and cultural elements are an interesting, refreshing twist. As always, the girls are hot, and the action is intense. This film is nowhere as good as X-Men: First Class. But, it's a step back into the right direction after the colossal disappointment of X-Men Beginnings: Wolverine... The ending was a bit of a catastrophe. But, as usual, make sure to stay and watch the cliff-hanger. The X-Men are back!

Thinking Man's Comic Book Movie

Great addition to the X-Men movie series with the spotlight on Wolverine following X-Men 3. Not the flash of Ironman or Spiderman, but a good comic tale of the search for honor and redemption. Nice lead into "Days of Future Past" Hugh Jackman rules the Wolverine character.

Wolverine on Top

Honestly, the only X-Man anyone really cares about. Glad to see the next installment. Plenty of action and important pieces of Logan's past are presented, although I think more could have been done for character development. I also would liked to have seen more Ninja fighting a-la the original graphic novel.

Fantastic X Movie

Wonderful balance between action and character/story development. Japanese corporate intrigue with Yakuza was a bit 1980's (Rising Sun anyone?), but worked nonetheless. Stay through the credits because there is an easter egg teaser that all fans must see! Recommended.
