I have to see all the XMen movies because Hugh Jackman plays such a great portrayal of Wolverine. This movie is much better than the first XMen Origins: Wolverine, and the action and special effects make it worth spending the extra money to see it in the theater.

Read the Comic book years ago (from Frank Miller) and this movie did the basic story line justice. Loved how Logan had to confront his own mortality.

The movie was awesome! Great action scenes. Best Wolverine movie to date. The only down fall is that there could have been a little longer story line, other than that greatness reveiled on the big screen. Must-Go you will not be disappointed.

The Wolverine keeps you on the edge of your seat. The sets designs- spectacular, the photography- expensive and flawless. Shots of everything Japanese give the film an exoticism that allows for every single character to be a martial arts expert. The fights scenes are visibly momentous. Some gut-wrenching flaws: Logan and Yukio are both highlighted riding motorcycles through the snow of Japanese winter; the sexy Viper has no discernable point as a character; the forest is wrongly identified as “present-day Alaska” by New York Times critic A.O Scott and is clearly the Yukon Canada, identified by The Yukon Sportsman’s Paradise sign; the scene from the trailer where Logan is smoking his trademark cigar- not in the film. The overarching theme dealing with Logan’s angst causing immortality redeems the film. Wolverine doesn’t save the world here, but ends up fighting just to save his own.

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.
