I probably wouldn't have seen this if I hadn't won a free pass mostly because movies with battles are not my cup of tea. This movie had a lot of death and many battles. Still it was better than I expected and I liked it a lot. It had many ninja battels. a tall blonde snake lady, great scenes filmed in Japan, and a big shiny robot. The plot was interesting and this is the first time I have seen a Wolverine movie of any kind. Even with all the battles I liked it and would recommend it. I loved the fact that it was about new technology and robots.

Before I watched "Wolverine", a co-worker told the story, to me, in general, how the comic book revealed it. This didn't bother me. I must say, this movie went pretty much how he explained it to me, except in one way. That I won't describe, as any spoiler. But even so, I thought how the film played out this section was pretty darn good. As I write this, I haven't seen this co-worker yet, so I don't know if he liked the film or not? In any case, "Wolverine" has a good plot (to those who haven't seen it), and action. Set in Japan, the film treated the Japanese culture and language respectfully.

We enjoyed the movie but loved the new AMC Arrowhead Theaters...The new remodeled seats are Great!! I loved the space between the rows of seats, so with my disability the space between the rows and the lazy-boy type seats, were wonderful!!

My son and I loved it. Never read the comics so no idea if it is close to it or not. Hugh does great ob as the Wolverine. Need to wait for the credits surprise scene in there. There was lot of action for my son to be happy and laughing at Wolverine's comments.

While this isn't my favorite film about the X-Men or their universe, this was so cool! I loved the Japanese setting and think that Tao Okamoto and Rei Fukushima were gorgeous and bad***. I found I definitely hated Viper and had a wonderful surprise at the end.
The fight sequences were good, although sometimes I felt like they were a bit long-winded... but I have to say the fight when Wolverine was trying to fix himself was awesome. I also think it's great to have another amazing archer (like Hawkeye's Japanese cousin or something).
Hugh Jackman is so likable as Wolverine and I had hoped his friendship with the bear hadn't been so short (it was a bit too abrupt...). I enjoyed getting to know his vulnerable side, especially since he didn't turn into a total wimp, it was a good balance and added pathos.
If you like X-Men or Wolverine you will see it.
