Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

I just saw it today and thought the story was way better than Origins. Hugh Jackman got hella ripped again. I liked Famke Janssen's reprisal of Jean Grey, or the afterlife version or psychic manifestation of her. At the end Logan was finally able to overcome the guilt of having killed her.

One thing about the Yashida plot is that it was a bit predictable, though I've never read the comic book the movie was based on. The action sequences, especially the bullet train fight, were pretty intense. A single occurrence of a curse word should not have warranted an R rating; it's not like there was bloody violence, gratuitous sex or nudity. It was very pleasing nonetheless to see Jackman's backside.

I give it a B+.
