Remember that Wolverine Origins movie that came out in 2009 and was complete trash.? Well not much has changed with this new installment of “The Wolverine”. This film takes place after the events of “X-Men Last Stand” which came out in 2006…… So unless you have a killer memory you better brush up on your X-Men homework.
The first act of The Wolverine was very entertaining and at times showed real promise. But fast forward to the middle of the film and the one emotion I felt was straight boredom and anger cause the little kid sitting next to me was chomping his popcorn so loud. The film hit that one-hour mark and just completely fell apart all over itself. The second act is so bizarre and pointless, you start to wonder if you’re watching the same movie. I promise this isn’t a spoiler, but seriously Wolverine gets his ass kicked the entire film. So then this begs the question, why in the hell am I watching a movie called “The Wolverine” when he is getting his ass kicked the entire film? The other characters in the film are completely forgettable, which is good for Hugh Jackman, because he is actually really good throughout the film.
If you’re still following along, I think its obvious that I didn’t really love this film. If you were on the fence about this movie, then maybe wait until it comes to Redbox. But in respect to all the comic/superhero fans go see it and tell me what you think.
