I grew up on Wolverine and the X-Men. I loved X2 and First Class and tolerated all the other slop. Even though I was disappointed in the first Wolverine solo movie I got excited about this one because I heard it was more story driven and less about throwing as many random mutants on screen as possible.
What we end up with is a superhero movie without the superhero. This is not the Wolverine from the comics. Hugh Jackman prances around with his shirt off, makes the occasional angry face and feels sorry for himself for nearly two hours. Luckily, there are great spurts of action, which is the only reason I even gave it a so-so. I almost fell asleep about halfway through.
The ending was ridiculous and the love story boring. Overall pretty disappointing, but if you're like me and have invested literally hundreds of dollars into watching the comic book heroes of your youth come alive on the big screen, you'll probably see it anyway. There is an excellent scene during the credits.

This was better than the first one by far. explained a lot more about the character than before and went into his past which I liked far better than the story line from before. great improvement.

Took the family to see Wolverine because nothing says family like a single guy clawing a bunch of bad guys to pieces. Personally - I liked the story of the last one better. In fact I also liked the last Xmen movie more too. This one seemed contrived and lacked the story line to really get me caring about the characters.

It was an entertaining action movie - the train sequence is worth the price of admission. But if your looking for depth and meaning this isnt it.

Lots of slicing and dicing. Pretty good plot. Lots of excitement, and great character storyline concerning Logan's past. Tip: stay for the secret scene after the credits. No one saw this coming...
