Hugh Jackman confirmed on having discussions with director James Mangold about test screening a PG-13 rated cut and an R-rated cut, but did not comment on filming sequences for them. Although the film was confirmed to be rated PG-13 via a tweet from James Mangold, saying, "It's PG-13, but don't worry, it ain't Bambi (1942)." An unrated and extended cut is confirmed exclusively for the 3-D Blu-ray release. See more »

That was a B-29, bub. There's no outrunning what's coming. You're better off down here. I'd hurry if I were you.

This is basically a tale of two movies. I know Hugh Jackman wanted this
movie to be an adaptation of the classic Chris Claremont/Frank Miller
comic book mini-series. You can see bits of that story here. But then
you have this other stuff, far removed from that story, that seems to
be studio-imposed and ultimately hurts what could have been one of the
best comic book movies to date. The good stuff, the stuff worth
watching this for, are the slower, quieter parts of the story. The
Wolverine and Mariko parts, basically. But all of the special
effects-heavy parts and the loud, flashy action sequences suck and take
away from the impact the movie would have otherwise had. There's
probably no better example than the different climactic battle scenes.
Wolverine vs Shingen is a much more powerful, emotional scene than the
shallow, garish stuff with Viper and a guy in robot armor.
I don't really blame James Mangold. No doubt it was Fox's interference
that caused the problems and also caused Darren Aronofsky to bail
before filming. You can see a better movie underneath this one. But Fox
didn't have the guts to make that movie. Probably felt it wasn't
commercial enough. Needed more robots and CGI fights on top of a
speeding train. Still, it's good enough to watch and enjoy most of it.
It's certainly miles better than the last Wolverine movie. But I can't
help but feel sad thinking about what might have been. They very well
could have given Wolverine his own 'Batman Begins' but instead we get
just another watchable popcorn movie with hints at something more
