The Wolverine

The Wolverine ★★★½

i haven't read the Claremont/Miller comic this is largely lifted from, but i'll be damned if those guys didn't crib this story from Sydney Pollack's THE YAKUZA. too bad this keeps insisting on being an X-MEN movie, otherwise lose all the diabolical handheld photography and you might have the Pakula-movie-with-superpowers transmission this so desperately needs to be.
