  1. After that piece of crap that came out almost 4 years ago, I’ll take what I can get. That’s why I was at least pleased with this flick. Good review.

    • I agree. This is a much better movie. I truly think it’s one of the top X-Men movies for me, simply because there are fewer mutants performing their tricks and a solid story line.

      I appreciate you taking time to comment.

  2. I had some fun with this one, and it was hugely improved over Origins. I loved the Japanese setting here too. It got a little slow in the middle and I had to struggle to think why any of it was actually happening but it was still pretty decent.

    • I agree with that. I felt like Origins tried to just do way too much. The middle has been an issue for several. Having read the Wolverine comic books when they first came out, I was kind of drawn into it. It was truly about his self-hatred and trying to free himself from guilt and allowing someone like Mariko to love him. I also liked how he kept fighting knowing that he was bleeding, even though he didn’t understand why. It showed that healing or not the type of fighter the Wolverine actually is.

      Thanks, Terry!
