Great third act wasn't the best

The Wolverine is a significant improvement on Origins. The third act might get a little cartoony and cliched, but it's still very entertaining. I will always defend the cinematic adaptations of Viper and Silver Samurai. Hugh Jackman's performance is fantastic, and the supporting cast all give solid performances. The only way James Mangold could've made The Wolverine better would have been to give it an R rating.

Without a doubt dominates its previous solo film of Origins Wolverine. The Wolverine isn't as much as an unforgettable top movie but still lives up to be an average X-Men film which isn't bad! But still isn't "good". My Score: 71%

If the same story is set in America, it would have been labelled ultra generic; as it stands, The Wolverine is a watchable episodic tale of the weapon known as X.
March 15, 2017
One of the more thoughtful X-Men films like X2. I would have liked a direct sequel to this film.
March 14, 2017
Great until the CGI Silver Samurai but even that isn't the worst thing to happen in this franchise.
March 13, 2017
One of the most underrated super hero movies ever.
March 12, 2017
One of, if not the least, compelling movies in all of the MC universe. There is some important character development for Logan to set up the last film, but the story is boring and much of the movie comes across as hokey.

Huge Jackman returns as Wolverine and in his second solo Wolverine film. In World War II Logan saves the life of a young Japanese solider. Many years later, that solider is on his death bed and wants to say goodbye to Logan. He finds that he is surrounded by very nefarious characters. The yakuza and several other people all want him dead.
To make matters worse a mutant makes contact with Logan which makes him human. He is not able to regenerate quickly anymore, and struggles to move as quickly. He must uncover the mystery behind the people who want his family members killed. He fights Yakuza, mutants and various skilled samurai as he uncovers the truth.

The Wolverine is tough film to follow and it is also hard to care about many of the underlying motives for any of the characters involved. There are many scenes where he is chased or attacked and it is not clear their purpose. The film definitely tries to make Logan as human as possible, as he struggles with his immortality, he dreams and has nightmares through the night and longs for Jean. The love interest between the Japanese women in the film seems forced and does not really fit well into the film. It's disappointing that with a solo film that they would waste or write such a premise as this film has. The film is by no means terrible, but it just simply did not need to be made and I was ready for this film to be over. If my love for Japanese culture could not save this movie, which it did not, I cannot imagine how this movie faired for those who have less interest in that.

I think it's well-known that the first X-Men movie, released way back in 2000, is often credited with paving the way for the current summer staple of superhero movies.

Since then, there's been 7 (including this) films based around those characters, with a 8th on the way ('X-Men: Apocalypse'). So far, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine has had at least a cameo in every single one of them.

Number 6 in that series, this is actually the second solo outing for Wolverine (after the slightly disappointing 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'), and acts as a sequel of sorts to the 3rd in the main X-Men series ('The Last Stand'), as well as a prequel to 'Days of Future Past' (particularly so by the mid-credit scene at the end). Set primarily in Japan, this is better than 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', but (IMO) not as good as 'First Class'.

This is dumb fun. You just need to embrace it and you'll like The Wolverine.
