The Wolverine Reviews
Though its final act is not as enthralling as the rest of the movie, it still has the juice. Summer 2013 hasn't ended yet. We still have some goodies out there.
The Wolverine is a smart pop-corn superhero film with all the right ingredients for action-packed entertainment.
Fox takes another shot at a solo Wolverine film, and while this movie was flawed, compared to 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" this is certainly eye candy.
This movie was fast pace and entertaining, and gave really bad ass fight scenes with a very creepy villain.
The film's post credits scene is a good one setting up future films, and is very worth seeing.
But it was just an ok action movie. Hugh Jackman is perfect as the Wolverine, but the script never really takes off. Why, oh why is it so hard to make good films with such a great character... I really, really wish Marvel could get all the rights back to the X-Men and do it right.
The best parts about the movie was the 1st act & the post-credits scene.
Overall score: 4.2/10 (Bad).
As a fan of superhero movies, I'd probably rate this a 5.5/10
but from a filmmaking & casual movie go-er's perspective (Meaning realistic) I'll stick with a 4.2/10, If you like mindless action then you will be pleased.
An enjoyable film, with a great performance by Hugh Jackman as always. It's good silly, well made fun. However, it's a bit overlong, and the last 30 minutes divulges into pure stupidity and madness. Still, it's good to see a Wolverine that actually kicks people's ass.
