......but that's hardly saying much. Following on from the 3rd X film, Logan is feeling sorry for himself and plagued by visions of Jean Grey. This conveniently leads into the story of the film - Logan's immortality (despite the fact he isn't immortal). Ah you expect any film based upon a comic to have a pretty flimsy plot but "The Wolverine" is going to take some beating.

Wolverine survives the bombing of Nagasaki and in doing so saves the life of a man who in the present day wishes to thank Logan and return the favour. Its here that the details become thin on the ground, very thin. The man promises to give Logan what he wants - death. How he plans to do so is, well never explained in any way shape or form. He has built up a fortune and a mega corporation but no details are forthcoming as to how. But it quickly becomes apparent that it doesn't matter. The film takes off and uses the lazy option - Yakura, family fueds and a completely forgettable mastermind behind the whole thing.

So cue the action and lots of running about not to mention plenty of completely pointless scenes (such as wolverine chopping the tree that is blocking the road). Its all just a time killer/filler until we reach the conclusion.

Remember I said the film is thin on detail. Well it up's the ante and the last 30 mins really drive the final nails into the coffin. The role of Viper is horrible, instantly forgettable (unless you happen to be writing a review to warn others). What are her plans, background and powers are virtually unknown. Sure she is a walking, talking sack of poison but now also seems to have a healing factor which would rival Logan. The Silver Samurai, well less said the better about that one. There are plenty of questions regarding the final battle which completely go against everything you know of Logan, especially his powers etc but again details and continuity are chucked out the window.

I was never a fan of Wolverine's adventures in Japan based on the comics (which again are virtually ignored bar an opening scene. Nothing of Logan trying to calm the inner beast) and this is a step up from the last offering but not by much. Again a missed opportunity to do something.....well interesting. The final third is not only predictable but also handled in a shoddy fashion and leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Fine to watch if you like the franchise etc but rather drab for everyone else. And we never did find out about the 3 guys in the jeep either!
