The Wolverine

The Wolverine ★★★★½

YouTube review of The Wolverine...


Very underrated film in the X-Men universe. A character driven Wolverine story about overcoming grief and exploring life, death, and immortality. Excellent action sequences and slick direction from James Mangold. Love the Japanese setting and samurai influences. Hugh Jackman's awesome as always.

Loses a few points due to its messy family drama storyline that was needlessly convoluted and its weak, but passable third act.

The pros definitely outweigh the negatives in this case (hence the high rating) and this was an awesome prototype for even better things with Logan, so The Wolverine earns RESPECT from me.
