The Wolverine is a fantastic appetizer of the collaboration between James Mangold and Hugh Jackman while Logan is the main mouth-watering three-course meal. A vast improvement over X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The Wolverine being "pretty good" seems like a miracle. It isn't. But it's watchable, satisfying and a less harmful way to scratch your Jackman itch than his last few offerings.

Giving credit where it's due, without Hugh Jackman's versatility, this kind of complicated blending of genres into a Marvel comic story would not have worked.

is a refreshing change of pace for a superhero film to directly deal with the emotional fallout of its predecessor.

Caught in a time warp where wounds heal and faces never age, Logan is haunted not by death but by life.

Jackman is as perfect for Wolverine as he was when he first played the character 13 years ago... He's a commanding presence throughout and, as you might expect, is the film's engine.

Fast-paced, the movie is engrossing not only during its action-packed sequences, but also quieter moments.

...[a] typical high glossy escapist summertime comic book adventure come to life. Reflective and rousing, The Wolverine does captivate and the payoff for Logan-loving loyalists does not disappoint.

November 2, 2018
A meaty narrative with plenty of depth, entertaining characters brought to life by well-cast actors, and fight scenes that number among some of the best in the X-Franchise.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Much like how Iron Man 3 did, this is a film that lets the character control the story and reminds you why you fell in love with him in the first place.

This is THE Wolverine movie I have been waiting for.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
August 29, 2018
The best X-Men movie, but still a victim of the franchise's utter disregard for continuity.

Should you see The Wolverine? If you understand that it's not a "superhero" film, but more of a superhero struggle type of movie with a guy who just happens to have some powers, you'll enjoy it.

Most of all, I love being able to say finally that Hugh Jackman killed as The Wolverine.

The Wolverine is at its best when it deals with Logan's internal struggles and helps return fans of the franchise to the modern day.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Wonky closing chapter aside, there's enough in The Wolverine that I find myself preferring it to all of the comic book pictures we've seen so far this year.

Recite the following using Arnold's accent: 'Hugh is beeg! He has got striations, vascularity, and pectoral shelves!'

All that money, all those CGI techs working into the night, and it doesn't pack a fraction of the impact of a wooden-sword battle between two men in the comic.

Comic book films cannot survive on action or spectacle alone, so it is some comfort to know that The Wolverine has a relatively solid script.
July 14, 2015
Director James Mangold... directs action with flair -- there's a fight scene atop a bullet train with a knife wielding Yakuza that's the most exhilarating sequence I've seen all year.
