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...

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.

Finally - a superhero movie that doesn't feel like every other superhero movie.

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...

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.

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...

Enjoyable, however...

By demented_darling
Great action scenes and I enjoyed the general storyline, but I felt that the Viper character was pointless and the ending with the samurai was predictable AND corny. Regardless...it was Hugh...

Still not the wolverine we deserve but closer still.

By mrandmrshalloween
The movie is not bad , it has a few punches in the dialog but you get the feeling early on exactly where its heading and who is doing what to whom. I will certainly buy it when it comes out but...

This movie was a supermodel with a bad limp.

By githig
First, Hugh Jackman's portraying the Wolverine was rock solid as always. If director James Mangold had chosen anyone else to play Wolverine, the film would've been a complete disaster, in spite of the...

Almost lives up to the comic book Wolverine

By snvkrypton
Great action, still needs to get bloodier to be a true Wolverine movie. I wish Quentin Tarantino could direct a wolverine movie with the type of action from Kill Bill. C'mon Marvel, do one R rated...

Hugh, Hugh, Hugh

By Maryjaneishere
O.K. I admit it. The only reason I watch this X-Men series is to look at Hugh Jackman. He is SOOOO much better than this story. The Shizu's acting was amazing....

A Disappointment

By avid_movie_goer773
*sigh* This movie was such a let down and I had high hopes for it... smh! it doesn't keep in tune with the other movies of Xmen or Wolverine origins as far as the pace and the excitement. The best...

Great Movie

By jeakins87
I had a blast watching this action packed movie. It really kept my attention and you learned much about "The Wolverine" throughout the entire movie. I have seen every one of the XMEN movies and with...

The Wolverine

I loved this ... And as a "Marvel" fan .. I know that the best part of any "Marvel Movie" is the ending after the credits have rolled....... This movie made it all worth while.. It was GREAT... A...

Probably the best Wolverine movie made

By master_jedi
If you're expecting to see the hack and slash Wolverine, you'll be disappointed. This is a pretty good Wolverine movie and focuses on Wolvie's comic history with his days in Japan...and in my...
