I thought the movie was really good. Lots of action and stayed interested throughout the whole movie. Was really excited at the end as well to see what X-Men will come up with next. Love it, Love it!

Okay, this movie was cool. It was way better then X3. It is better then X-men orgins. Not as good as X2. Is it better then the first x-men. Probaly yes. Either way both good. I think kids would find it a little to violent for them and scary. I think age 11 years would survive this. They did have a few bloody parts in it. And overall this movie was cool how he get's out of a bunch of Japanese people with swords and guns. The coolest line is ''Do you know how many people tried to kill me and I am still here.'' I am theavaragecritic and you should go see this movie you would like it. Or go see one of the X-men's just not the third anything but the third.

I took my grandson to see the movie at his request. I wasn't expecting mush more than a rehash of the super hero genre. But, I was pleasantly surprised. It had the requsite action but examined the emotional baggage the Wolverene was dealing with.
I think we both liked the movie.
The only thing I took exception with was some of the language. It seemed a little gratuitous to me and not pertinent to the story.

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!

I enjoyed the movie. I just wish there was a true villain that was challenging the hero from beginning to end. I loved the post credits scene.
