Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread
I voted Average.
What I liked: Great fight choreography; nice character work from Jackman, Tao Okamoto, and Rila Fukushima; good pacing; nice to see some resolution with Jean, or at least Logan's internal demons manifesting as Jean.
What I didn't like: Pretty much everything else. So much stuff happening without explanation, such a cardboard cutout female villain, so many times I said to myself "Ok, why the hell is that happening?"... and the big bad at the end was spontaneously predictable and disappointing. Really, it's a testament to the three leads that they were able to elevate it from a waste of time into a pretty decent movie through acting chops and chemistry alone.
Oh, and I now have a thing for Tao Okamoto; Sweet Flying Zombie Jesus but that woman is lovely!
