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/extended cut is confirmed exclusively for the 3D 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.

(67%) A refreshing change of pace and tone from all the other superhero movies that are relentlessly made these days that focuses as much attention on character as it does action. This is a well made leap forward over the last Skip Woods written Wolverine picture, with a lot more depth, ideas, and purpose, with Jackman fitting into the role perfectly as he always has from the beginning. The story is pretty simple, yet there are complexities in there dealing with loss of loved ones and human mortality which is handled well in a movie that could have simply not bothered. Overall a good, solid superhero entry to go alongside the best of the bunch.
