Okay let me just start by saying that 'The Wolverine' isn't really a good movie, it's just okay. Don't get me wrong it does have some really good moments like the action scenes, Logan having nightmares about Jean Gray and the basic premise of him being on the run works really well. However, nothing really important happens throughout this movie. I'm not joking. You could literally watch all of the other X-Men movies and skip this one and it would still make sense. Don't get me wrong this movie is still better than the travesty that was 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' but really it's nothing more than a setup for 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past', similar to how 'Iron Man 2' is just really a setup for 'Avengers Assemble'. Overall, I'd only say buy this movie if you're a completionist or a hardcore fan of Wolverine or just X-Men in general. However if you're just a casual fan, feel free to skip this one.

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.

After the dust had fallen from the greatly anticipated 2009 film ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’, it was widely flawed by fans and critics as a general disappointment to the X-Men universe and the character of Wolverine himself. Populated with as many mutants as they could use for “fan-boy” pleasing, X-Men comic nods to pin a story together, a number of big name stars who appeared amongst a heavy CGI action story, it left audiences with a sour taste in their mouths. So with the 4 year gap between films, another Wolverine headlined adventure taking place AFTER the original X-Men trilogy serving as a sequel than prequel (keep up…), this was the chance to prove that the character had a real core to be discovered and make up for a failed attempt at giving fans the hero they wanted.

I was one of the many fans disappointed by ‘Origins’ and feared another Wolverine film would simply add insult to injury. Thankfully, I was proved wrong and am so glad I was. This film is the one that eradicates ‘Origins’ as shows us a hero already established but one where there is real character development, a good story and brilliant action used sparingly but effectively.

The action is nothing new in the modern super-hero rule book, but this is a brutal and painful looking story where Jackman really owns the character more than ever, and every punch, kick and slice is felt and we even have blood stained claws at one point! The CGI is there but it is never used for the sake of it, only to enhance dangerous scenes or “super” powers that couldn’t be done in reality which I’m happy to see. There’s a violent grace to the fight sequences that appeals to all fans without being TOO violent to isolate younger fans.

STUNNING! Having been a fan of Marvel, Dark Horse, 2000AD etc for many years and collecting the films also, I was thinking this would be a bit of a disappointment as I heard people saying it was rather average especially compared to the other X-MEN type films. How more could they be wrong. The first 20 mins captivated me, and I knew I was watching a masterpiece of a movie. The acting, script, flow of story is just superb and also has a surprisingly refreshing feel. You genuinely feel attached to all of the characters and the direction of the film is just beautiful, with virtually many scenes having an almost Ridley-Scott buttery perfection to it. The action pieces are excellent and are never OTT, by far the most faithful to the comics and most 'believable', one of the highlights being the fight atop of the bullet train. The pacing is really what makes this film, it is neither too fast nor too slow, but just absolutely perfect, with each scene unfolding with a kind of serene rhythm, giving you plenty of time to take in the characters and stunning cinematography and attention to detail. Visually the effects are gorgeous, the bear in the woods being one of the highlights for being so realistic. Hugh Jackman and the other supporting Japanese character actors are just superb, rock-solid and exactly what I wanted to see and hear. The story was nothing outstanding, but it is beautifully realised from the script and certainly keeps you interested. You feel it is building up to something and the ending doesn't disappoint. I was genuinely surprised in a few places! This really is a terribly underrated film, much more enjoyable than the previous Wolverine film and that was a good effort. I place this alongside Oblivion for the most criminally underrated films of the last few years. Excellent Blu-Ray quality, highly recommended!
