Well choreographed fight scenes should be used to enhance a story, not as the primary mode of storytelling . The best part of the movie was the very end, but getting there wasn't worth the ticket price.

This is good for a true fan, but has some serious plot problems. It's fun, fast, furious, but has a hokey ending, and several things that just would never happen.

This movie had plenty of action, twists and a few turns. Very exciting, although I would be very selective of what aged child to bring. If you like Hugh Jackman, this movie will be one of your favorites.

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.

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.
