The Wolverine Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Review


Synopsis: Hugh Jackman returns as The Wolverine and faces his ultimate nemesis in an action packed life-or-death battle that takes him to modern day Japan. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his limits, Logan confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality; an epic fight that will leave him forever changed.

Review: I'm a huge fan of the X-Men and of course Wolverine.  I know that the first Wolverine film got a lot of heat from fans, but I thought it was an okay watch.  This one, however, got a lot more scrutiny from me, because I'm a HUGE fan of the original Frank Miller Wolverine comic book mini-series on which this is based.   The film features Hugh Jackman doing a fantastic job as the Wolverine.  He has really  nailed this character to the point where it feels effortless.  He just melts right into the mystique (no pun intended).  The film does a pretty good job of adapting certain parts of the comic book, while changing enough to update it and make it more Hollywood.  There is some great dark humor and good action scenes.  This one is a great comic book film and sure to please any fan of Wolverine!
