A decent follow up in the X-Men series...,
This review is from: The Wolverine [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
After the disappointing X-Men Origins, I wasn't too sure if I was interested in any more X-Men movies, as X-Men 3 didn't do much for me either. But then X-Men First Class came out, and it increased my interest in the series future.
However, when The Wolverine was announced I was unsure if it would deliver, for as good as Hugh Jackman is as Wolverine the characters he was surrounded with in X-Men Origins were very uninteresting and very one dimensional. Unfortunately, the same problem occurs in The Wolverine, with Hugh Jackman being the only standout of the film. The films does feature some every good action and the mid credit sequence at the end is great to build up to X-Men: Days of Futures Past (the trailer looks great by the way), but it doesn't do enough to put it in the came class at X-Men, X2 and X-Men:First Class.
