    It is better than the truly daft film before it, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but that just means one can tolerably sit — or sleep — through it. There are a couple of strong moments and two very interesting female characters, but on the whole this film, like the protagonist, mostly just grunts.

    Also, the yarn devolves into blockbuster movie clichés during the extended end battle. Hugh Jackman is the cast standout. Rila Fukushima is sassy as the emissary who coaxes him out of self-imposed exile.

  • There are superhero movies with better gags and then there are superhero films with more effects. Eschewing any of those in excess, what this film also offers is soul, pathos and a pretty good look at the multifaceted character that is The Wolverine.

    Without going into too much details of the plot, it is well written. It will keep you gripped and at the edge of your seat. There are some cameo appearances towards the end which the fans would enjoy.

  • There’s fine line between familiar and boring, and The Wolverine looks like it’s a franchise that needs someone to stop it from mutating into predictable and dull.
