The plane drops the atomic bomb on Nagasaki from a low altitude. In fact it was flying at 30 000 feet (9100 metres) and would not have been visible in this way above the city. See more »

The Wolverine's Mid Life Crisis.
20 November 2013 | by (Oman) – See all my reviews

I'm not a big fan of the x-men franchise but this movie had be thinking I'm gonna like it and I did, for the first half that is. The movie takes off pretty well, attains cruising altitude and then suddenly drops like dead weight. They had everything going well for this movie until Wolverine decides to let his balls do the thinking for him. Half way through the movie they must've remembered that sex sells and so do unnecessary explosions and stunts. From what I understood, old man had alzhimers, cute babe had obsessive compulsive disorder, the cute doctor had PMS and wolverine had a mid life crisis. By the time I got to the end I was only waiting for it to be over.
