Robert Gardiner’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Go fuck yourself, pretty boy!“
This is a massive improvement of Origin, like have a better director in James Mangold . A strong story that doesn’t just show us stuff we’d already seen, setting it in Japan gives the film a fresh feel. Japan and it’s culture have always played a big part in Wolverine’s history, and this takes a lot of influences from the Japanese saga by comic book writers Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, Hugh Jackman is brilliant as ever as Logan and boy dose he get into shape. Jackman even says this was the perfect body look that he been striving for. Mangold delivers some big action and fights, highlight by Wolverine vs a twin sword Samurai . He also gets to slice and dice with ninjas, very cool.
