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.

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...

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.

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.

If you're a comics fan and have been WAITING to see a great version of Logan, THE WOLVERINE is for you.
PLEASE don't wait for it on home video. I took my 72 year old mother and we both enjoyed it greatly.
