Japan seems valued more for its scenery and costumes than anything having to do with its character.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Significantly improving on the silliness of the character's first X-Men-free outing, Marvel has turned out a movie that fits one of its most compelling characters as snugly as an indestructible steel skeleton.

Tossing aside everything that had made it distinctive, the film's final segment retreats to a generic industrial space for weightless computer generated destruction. Such a shame, as this was almost a real movie.

The action is swift, Jackman is jacked, and the 3D looks great. Where the film falters is the final act, which turns into a silly cartoon.

Director James Mangold and credited screenwriters Scott Frank and Mark Bomback develop Logan as a complex individual, rather than just using him as to provide still more hokey backstory and empty action.

The film is at its best when it is most reflective of the source material that inspired it, and it disappoints where it most fails to live up to that source material. ...I regret it didn't achieve more.

The standard action sequences pile up, interspersed with Wolverine's mooning about in a funk because he's lost the will to live.

Not a classic, but The Wolverine proves solid
April 8, 2014
The directorial skills Mangold applied to "Heavy," "3:10 to Yuma" and "Walk The Line" are in evidence, especially in an understanding of the Western's dynamics of quietude, then release.

Despite the faults, it's invigorating to see a franchise take its most popular character into uncharted emotional territory
December 30, 2013
It's basically a high-budget take on an old-school samurai flick, with Wolverine as the ronin. And it's as awesome as it sounds.

Jackman shuffles along with zombie obligation, as though he can't believe how much money he's been paid to go through these motions.

December 27, 2013
Preferring to stay broody and small-time, this minimalist noir, with little dialogue and no world-threatening schemes, intriguingly sustains its culture clash and blurring lines between man, beast and monster.

After this Origins film, the Wolverine character had the potentially of crashing and burning. Thankfully, it did not.

Looks like someone decided to take the Wolverine spin-off series seriously.
November 17, 2013
Man, Wolverine is a boring character. Never has that been made more apparent than in "The Wolverine."
September 6, 2013
Ultimately, this is Jackman's film, and he plays the reluctant but fearsome hero perfectly.

Moderadamente eficaz, mas não deixa de ser sintomático que sua melhor cena seja aquela que surge apenas durante os créditos finais.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

...the movie simply doesn't have anything interesting or relevant to say about the iconic Marvel character.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 20, 2013
Slick, entertaining, super-hero thrill ride, the only quibbles are its length - every big film these days seems to be 20 minutes too long - and its 3D conversion. Really, it's another example of the marginal difference that process often makes.
