The Wolverine is the story of one man’s struggle with having to play the same superhero seven times. The best word to describe this movie is unnecessary. I mean, really ask yourself, did we need another damn solo Wolverine movie? Especially with the long awaited X-men: Days of Future Past coming out next summer? This movie just felt like it was killing time between entries in the series that we actually care about. Complete and total filler bullshit. I wish I could say this movie was hilarious. I mean, I did laugh a lot. Every fight scene was totally silly, and I lost it when Wolverine stuck his hand inside his own chest to rip out the robot thing attached to his heart. I mean, people were staring at me in the theatre cause I was laughing so hard. Not a good sign during a scene where the main character’s about to die. The one positive thing I will say about this movie is that it’s the closest movie Wolverine has ever come to being as badass as comic Wolverine. I liked the tone of the movie, even if the plot and action scenes were kind of dumb. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. This movie was just to hold us over until Days Of Future Past. It’s like if you go to a restaurant, and the food is really good, but the bread kind of sucked. You can’t really complain. And hey, it’s a hell of a lot better that X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Overall Rating: The uncomfortable feeling of seeing Wolverine’s claws get cut off/10
