Most of all, I love being able to say finally that Hugh Jackman killed as The Wolverine.

The Wolverine is at its best when it deals with Logan's internal struggles and helps return fans of the franchise to the modern day.

Wonky closing chapter aside, there's enough in The Wolverine that I find myself preferring it to all of the comic book pictures we've seen so far this year.

Recite the following using Arnold's accent: 'Hugh is beeg! He has got striations, vascularity, and pectoral shelves!'

All that money, all those CGI techs working into the night, and it doesn't pack a fraction of the impact of a wooden-sword battle between two men in the comic.

Comic book films cannot survive on action or spectacle alone, so it is some comfort to know that The Wolverine has a relatively solid script.

Director James Mangold... directs action with flair -- there's a fight scene atop a bullet train with a knife wielding Yakuza that's the most exhilarating sequence I've seen all year.

There's lots of fun to be had with a train-top fight, allowing Wolverine to show off those adamantium claws, and snow-set Ninja battles, but the final sequence feels messy.

[Jackman has] grown into the role - carrying around a rough hemp sack of weariness, regret, determination and anger with each twitch of his scowl or line around his eyes.

A fight with an assassin atop a speeding Japanese bullet train is guaranteed to leave the viewer giddy with excitement.

I had a ball.

If nothing else, The Wolverine proves how charismatic Jackman is. Because the star, far more than the stunts and the illogical script, is the reason to see this X-Men spinoff.

It's refreshing in this summer of supersized, city-destroying mayhem to see a smaller, personal superhero story.

Basically, it becomes another Wolverine yarn, and the energy and talent expended to find something worthwhile in that falls exhausted to the floor. It's enjoyable, even memorable. But comic-book lead can't be turned into gold.

It's Jackman's grace and talent that really sets The Wolverine apart.

July 14, 2015
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.

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.

November 6, 2014
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.

Not a classic, but The Wolverine proves solid
