The Wolverine is a 2013 action fim starring Hugh Jackman as the iconic Wolverine. It is largely set in Japan and based loosely on the graphic novels by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller which saw the start of Wolverine's Japanese connection. The run-time on the Blu-ray is the same as the theatrical release. There is some talking head feature as part of the Extras but not much else. The Blu-ray comes with a downloadable version.

Wolverine is one of the greatest of the comic book heroes. His sense of honour, the underdog with that rage, his immortality, and pervading sense of grief are so well known. Wolverine's journey into Japan is a part of his lore, something well known to fans. It is good to see this part of the great Wolverine on screen.

The Wolverine is not a direct translation of comic book onto film. In the Extras, producer Hutch Parker says that the best films do not stick too closely to canon. He is completely wrong. The closer a film sticks to its origin the better it tends to be with only a few rare exceptions. The Wolverine is not an exception. It is a good film but never great, it is not as interesting or exciting as the world from which it was drawn but it is a perfectly fine action adventure.

One of the most difficult things about The Wolverine when compared to the original is Hugh Jackman himself. He is a magnifcent Wolverine. Jackman is so intense, appears to be locked so deep in thought all of the time. The fire within burns throughout and seems to be just on the cusp of control. It is an excellent performance. The problem though is that he is too big.

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.

Perhaps "Wolverine 3" would be a better title considering all the times we have seen Jackman in this role. The film opens with a flashback dream within a flashback dream as Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) continues playing Jeremiah Johnson. He is persuaded to go to Japan by Yukio (Rila Fukushima) to pay his last respects. While in Japan, Wolverine encounters Viper woman (Svetlana Khodchenkova) his "Kryptonite," and gets involved in a plot that gave me flashbacks to fine films like "Toxic Avenger II" and "Nazis at the Center of the Earth."

The plot had more complexity than what I expected or wanted to see. The action scenes were shot by shaking the camera at odd angles so we could feel the intensity. Instead I thought "Why the low budget effect?" The film started out with some comedy and dark comedy, but that aspect quickly died when they went to Japan.

Considering the fine Avenger/Mutant films that have come out, this one was a let down.

Worth a rental. Most likely I will buy it since I own all the other ones, but I will wait for the big price drop.

Parental Guide: 1 F-bomb. Implied morning after sex. Jackman rear nudity...again.
