This movie is true to the comic book series! The samurai story is a vital part of who Logan/Wolverine is. I thought the cinematography was great! Japan was exquisite! Go see this movie!

Saw the Wolverine and it was definitely worth watching it in the theater. Hugh Jackman has the character down and the action scenes were really well done. Wolverine is my favorite X-Men character and this movie did not disappoint. Will see it again and am planning on buying the DVD.

As a forewarning to any hardcore fan of the original Wolverine comics for this story arc, It has it's twists and off scripts. Sure it may not be 100% of the original story when Wolverine is in Japan and falls in love with Mariko, or his Japanese nemesis the Silver Samurai. But despite that one thing, This is a Wolverine movie that has buried all the previous ones! Has Romance, drama, comedy, action, etc. Has everything you'll love in a Wolverine movie. My advice is GO SEE IT!

Being a fan of the comic books of marvel and DC makes it hard when you watch this movie and it has so many hollywood inconsistencies it. After I was able to get past that the movie was ok. And i'm hoping the movie can redeem itself with further chapters. All in all I give the movie a C. The effects were good and the storyline went well with the movie. Kids of all ages will enjoy the move but the die hards and comic book followers will feel a bit slighted and a few questions.

Here is a movie where you are in suspense the whole time, waiting to see what happens next! It is action-packed from the get-go, never letting up for a moment...
James Mangold has created far and away the best of the Wolverine movies so far. Hugh Jackman is outstanding as the mutant warrior and we see him going through trial of strength after trial of strength. The action is constant and the sense of adventure is gripping! Also we are introduced to some Japanese actors who are a major part of the action, too. Rila Fukushima and Tao Okamoto play outstanding roles as the action gets thicker and thicker.
The fight at the temple is beautifully orchestrated and the struggle on the top of a fast-moving Japanese "bullet" train is amazing to watch. I was sitting on my hands for most of the movie, the action was so intense!
I have never seen an atomic bomb go off, so the beginning of the movie is a truly amazing piece of not only history being unfolded, but movie history too.
