An all around fine film for the superhero/action genre that is an improvement of sorts over X-Men Origins: Wolverine which should have been titled Weapon X. That was about Logan/James Howlett's past and how he got the adamantium put into his body. This is a sequel to X-Men: Last Stand and a worthy of the X-Cinematic Universe. In the aftermath of the events from Last Stand, Logan finds himself heading to Japan and focuses on characters from his adventures there based upon the Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine comic book story lines. This also deals with Logan's past but a part that was quite extraordinary. There are differences from the film than comics as always and I am very okay with it. True adaptations are hard and sometimes come across as not so good. Most fans will be talking about the end credits scene which acts as a prequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past which comes out next May 23, 2014. If a Hugh Jackman fan, a ninja fan, an X-Men fan, or just an action fan, go see it.

If you're expecting to see the hack and slash Wolverine, you'll be disappointed. This is a pretty good Wolverine movie and focuses on Wolvie's comic history with his days in Japan...and in my opinion probably the best Wolverine performance Hugh Jackman has played. Thanks to Jackman's acting Wolverine is quietly becoming to the X-Men movie franchise what Iron Man is to the Avengers movie franchise...a must have.
This is a definite upgrade from the Wolverine Origins movie. The plot is pretty solid, and the acting isn't bad. You get a feel there's something more in store for the Canadian mutant.
Some won't ike it, but it does flesh his hollywood character out. It's worth seeing in theaters.

A lot of scenes in the movie were extremely predictable. All the drama kinda killed the excitement a bit.
Decent movie, but I probably wouldn't watch it again...

Got what I paid for... Wolverine slashin' and dashin'... having more heart than he'd like to admit... but Viper? Meh. Felt like her voice was dubbed.. and she added nothing to the film. IMO, she needed to either be smarter and more devious, or more of a flat out bad***... shall we say... 'vemonous?'

This movie was beyond "must go", it is "do not miss on the big screen". This is the Wolverine that we have been waiting for. I would pay to see this movie again!!!
