I walked away from this movie very satisfied. As it pertains to Wolverine, the movie could be completely terrible as long as Hugh Jackman turns in a great performance (which he did and always does).
Whenever you put Wolvy in Asian territory, the results are almost always gonna be juicy. And this 2nd installment of the Wolverine backstory will definitely give you enough meat to sink your teeth (or claws) into. You generally know what to expect from these type of X-Men-related movies by now if you're a fan: a lot of action with plot relegated to shotgun seating. Which is fine, but if you crave more from your superhero action movies, then this one will not only keep you on the edge of your seat, but may also tug at your heartstrings.
Bottom Line: This was a very good sequel, especially considering the lukewarm reception the first Wolverine movie received. It has action, it has suspense, and surprisingly (or not surprisingly to Wolverine stans)... it has a lot of heart. Go see it!

After the mess that was "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", the bar was set pretty low for this movie. Thankfully, it berserker-leaped right over that bar, slashing it into a million little pieces.

The film was great and gave you more of a rounded background. Still working up to the original character. The action was great and very fast paced. The length of the movie was just right for the story line. I would recommend this movie for all ages and a fun afternoon. Not sure how this would do in 3D, but the effects were great in the regular cinema. If you are an X-Men fan this is a must see in the series.

I enjoyed this movie very much, had new players in it, that did a very good job.
Very exciting, edge of your seat movie. Good for any age to see.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this film. Hugh Jackman is the best! The supporting cast was better than I've seen in other Wolverine films. It held my interest every mInute. Can't wait for the next adventure. - Carol
