★★★☆☆ Hugh Jackman returns to the franchise that made his name for a fifth time in The Wolverine (2013), a serviceable if somewhat anaemic entry that continues to investigate the X-Men series' chief protagonist in a more personal fashion, all the while bogging itself down in customary comic book tropes. Whereas the dire X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) looked to divulge previously alluded-to answers to Logan's (Jackman) chequered past whilst attempting to set up a roster of fan-favourite characters, James Mangold's The Wolverine consciously shifts the action to refreshing territory by tackling more distinctive material.
