I was hoping to get more out of the female characters in this movie. But, in that sense it was a typical Hollywood action/superhero movie. The male characters, on the other hand, were very dynamic. And, the surgery scene was excellent.

"The Wolverine" by Yojimbo

Logan has renounced violence after the death of Jean Grey but becomes embroiled in the affairs of the Yakuza whilst protecting a dying friend's grand-daughter in Japan. The original Wolverine mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller has always been ripe for a big screen interpretation and although The Wolverine is hardly a faithful adaptation, it does contain enough of its elements to do it some small justice. It's essentially just another "damsel in distress" story, but the Wolverine character is finally done with a grittier, harder edge, despite the still frankly implausible lack of blood involved. The backdrop of Japanese culture makes for an interesting "stranger in a strange land" flavour and it's nice to see an episode from Logan's past play out. Although James Mangold is har...

The Wolverine

This was pretty much dull for an action flick. One character can see the future while another is mutant that spits acid. The twist was not that impactful and the final battle was somewhat laughable, an armored samurai is the best they can think of. Its disappointing how uninteresting the franchise of Wolverine is compared to the X-Men, filled with wonderful character development, appropriate action, timely humor and enticing plot (except for the 3rd though where they kill off almost everybody). Having Logan's healing powers removed and near-death experience were one of the highlights, but other than that nothing much interesting in the story. Most scenes felt a bit preachy about life, death and repaying debts. If there was more background on Yukio (Rila Fukushima) then this would ha...

Different Approach, but still Fun to Watch!

Great opening as we witness our tormented hero trying to forget the past in the stark Alaskan mountains but it doesn’t take long for Logan to get drawn back into his old kick-ass ways as he is forced to protect the weak and stand for what is right after some hillbilly bear hunters wound his only friend, a grizzly bear with a toxic dart and leave him for dead.

The agile, red headed sword-wielding wrath, Yukio (Rila Fukushima), tracks the Wolverine down to a tavern as he is about to kill the bear hunter. She is on a mission to invite Logan to Japan on behalf of a Japanese guy Yashida (Ken Yamamura) whose life he had saved during the Nagasaki bombing in the Second World War. Yashida, a humble army commandant then, is now the most powerful man in Japan spearheading an industrial conglomer...

pretty good

pretty good! I was surprised at how nice a job they did with Japan. Hollywood movies usually only have two or three things they're willing to show about japan (Hyper Modern! Solemn Tradition! Kinky Sex!), and while this movie did hit all those expected notes, it also showed a lot of like... back alleyways and small towns and architecture that was neither traditional nor futuristic. It felt much more like the Japan I've actually been to than say, Lost in Translation or Enter the Void did. Plus like, nice job on having a ton of non-white actors with major roles (even if there were a number of expected orientalizing cliches). Don't ask me about the plot, though, because I have no idea. people were fighting over stuff I guess? I was mostly looking at the painted screens in the background.
