The Wolverine – Movie Review

the_wolverine

The last time Wolvy had a solo outing, things didn’t fare too well. Does The Wolverine give solace to the fans? Hit the jump to watch my full review…

Official Synopsis: When Wolverine is summoned to Japan by an old acquaintance, he is embroiled in a conflict that forces him to confront his own demons.

Review Summary: Comic book films are everywhere now. It’s refreshing to see one that takes it’s character seriously, especially after the disastrous last attempt at a solo outing in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The action is swift, Jackman is jacked, and the 3D looks great. Where the film falters is the final act, which turns into a silly cartoon.

Grade: A-

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada
Directed by: James Mangold
MPAA Rating: PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, some sexuality and language
