If you're still smarting over the disaster that was Origins (not including the title sequence, which was the only good part of that movie!)then you can feel confident that The Wolveriene will leave you with a much better sentiment.

Still fitting into the continuity of the other X-Men films but without many constraints imposed upon itself, The Wolveriene is a great standalone film which helps to flesh out the titular character, which in many people's opinions is the most interesting in Marvel lore.

On the whole Jackman does a great job at portraying Wolveriene, and slightly more nuanced than he has played the role in the past. I liked how superheroes aren't always at the forefront and it's more about vendettas and relationships. The action that does feature is, on the whole, excellent and not too 'OTT' (in contrast, I found Man of Steel to be overly action orientated) right up until the final showdown battle with Silver Samurai, which I felt went too much with the expected Hollywood ending.

Overall though it's a great film, and you don't need to be into Marvel or superheroes to enjoy it.

Movie reviews are available elsewhere. This version of the movie is OK and comes with the excellent Frank Miller comic book that the film was VERY loosely based on.
Problems are:
You only get part 1 of 5 so left hanging unless you want to dip back into Amazon for the full graphic novel - in which case why bother with this?
This isn't the extended version of the movie so you don't get the full fix.
Good thing is that when I bought this it only cost 15 so looking at the current price (25) I'd say there's better ways of spending your hard earned...You could probably buy the extended version AND the Miller original for the same money.

Brilliant series of films. Love the storyline, characters and the cast, particularly the gorgeous Hugh Jackman. This is a great addition to the Xmen films.

Great movie and better than the first Wolverine movie. Who couldn't like Hugh Jackman? That said the movie had very good action. Enjoyed immensely!

If you're a fan of Wolverine movies, Samurai action or action movies in general this movie is for you. From the get go its action, romance and a deep story all in one great two hour story as we find out what happened to Logan after the finale of X Men 3. Totally different to the X Men movies but in its heart still classic Wolverine. Well worth two hours of your time and trust me you wont be disappointed.

Not without its minor dialogue hiccups or gaps in logic, Manigold still delivers a solid and moving thrill ride. Taking the time to delve into Wolverine's psyche and his own fears gives the character flesh and gravitas previously absent, and mixed with Jackman's strongest performance to date, that's make for gripping viewing. Add to that some excellent action scenes (especially an inventive battle on top of a bullet train), an exciting yet understated score from Marco Beltrami that never goes overboard, and some top notch effects work, and you have a rather solid superhero film with a little extra.
