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.

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.

I'm a massive Marvel/super hero fan but not really that big a fan of Wolverine.Despite his back story that I've seen in comic,cartoon and film form now(maybe the problem is over exposure?)I find him one of the least interesting characters of the Marvelverse.Having said that I'll watch any Marvel film that comes out and there's no denying that Hugh Jackman was born to play the role.Marvel films tend to fall into four categories for me.Excellent(Avengers Assemble,Guardians Of The Galaxy,Iron Man),Great(most of the X-Men films,Spider Man,Thor),Okay(Incredible Hulk,Daredevil,Fantastic Four) and Oh Dear(Hulk,Elektra,Ghost Rider).Then The Wolverine was released and didn't fit into any of my boxes.It has a different vibe to the usual super hero film,which whether good or bad still feel like your'e watching a comic book explode into life.This time round,Wolverine's mood/state of mind,the setting(Japan) and the general absence of super beings fighting for screen time are what gives it more of a noir-ish/thriller feel,also making It much better than X-Men Origins:Wolverine(which was 'okay',just!).My only gripe?The main villain was a bit of a let down.But it was still a Wolverine film and i did enjoy it.But please.No more now.There are another billion characters out there!

I was a fan of Wolverine since long before Hugh Jackman took on the role but he is something of an added bonus. This was always going to be a winner for me. The Wolverine could not have been cast better. Not too many dodgy special effects, a nice, human storyline and not too much Hollywood schmaltz. This had the potential to be a really bad spin-off but we were pleasantly surprised.

I like Hugh Jackman, he's a good strong actor who always delivers a good performance, but this film was somewhat of a let down for me, it's somewhat confusing as it flits back and forth between the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and present day. I still don't know if Wolverine was indestructible before they filled him full of adamantium or not??????????. For me, not a good watch.

Original for the japanese setting and a unexpected drama/love/intimistic story, nobilitated by a samuray/like sense of honor. A pleasant surprise by a versatile director like James Mangold, who mark the story with the touch that's always made the difference in all his films (Copland as much as 3:10 to yuma): a sensibility toward human souls and people's relationships.
Blu ray is very good and the Japanese setting is perfect for visually interesting shots that are perfectly exposed in HD.
