It has evaded many red flags for it to be considered as a PG-13 movie, and honestly, kids should not watch it as it is not suitable for them.

It was a fascinating film, and if you have seen Logan, you'll be able to see that it is like a prelude for it.

Wolverine, but gritty and more human than mutant! This movie showed the toll of immortality, and the price you are willing to pay for one to take it away.

"What they did to me, what I am, can't be undone."
Despite the fact that "The X-Men" were never my favorite superheroes, this film could still fascinate me. The script wasn't entirely accurate and you ended up with a huge number of questions in some situations. It's a long time ago I've watched the original X-Men movie. And "The Wolverine" is the most imaginative character off course. It's therefore normal there are apparently a number of spin-offs about him. By choosing Japan as the location, the interference by the Yakuza was a logical consequence. The positive result is that you sometimes get flashy and highly entertaining action moments, with a mix of "Martial Art" and the cutting and slicing actions of "The Wolverine" as an excellent combination, presenting exciting movie …

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 …

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 …
