The Wolverine

Postby Fat Bob » 28th Jul, '13, 18:13

Went to watch this last night and really enjoyed it. For those of you that know the X-Men series, then this occurs a couple of years after the final movie, X-Men:The Last Stand. Wolverine is not happy, having had to kill the girl he loved, and is visibly suffering from it.

However, his past re-visits him, a good deed carried out in WWII comes back....and is he going to be haunted?

I'll let you see the rest of the movie yourself, but this has enough mutants, a couple of new ones, a reasonable enough story and kept me entertained for the couple of hours in the movie theatre.

If you're a fan of the other movies, then this is a must see, as too if you enjoy comic-books which are turned to movies, or general scifi.

Yes wholeheartedly agree with you FB, a really good action packed (all the way through) movie. Loved it. Love Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, you can see he loves playing the part.

If you get a chance, watch episode 4 of the latest Top Gear, where Hugh is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car. Good interview indeed.

I stayed for the mid-credit scene (which was brings some questions!), is there another one at post-credit? Oooooh.....

Vmax was great, but 3d unneccessary for this movie. Actually some fast moving scenes were possibly degraded by the 3d format.

The movie was pretty good, but fell short of awesome. Make sure you stay for the mid-credit scene - you won't be disappointed.
