Trivia

The taxi sign on the roof of the taxi standing outside the "love hotel" in Tokyo, has the X-Men logo on it. See more »

Goofs

A muffled thud is heard as soon as the atomic bomb goes off. In reality, like with lightning and thunder, the flash should be silent at first, with some time lag until the sound of the explosion arrives, because sound travels a lot slower than light. Looking at a map of Nagasaki bay, the distance between ground zero and the prisoner camp should be around 2.2 km, which would make for a lag time of about 7 seconds - for any kind of sound transmitted through the air.

The very first sound to be heard at all should be a low-frequency rumble from vibrations transmitted through the ground and the sea, because sound moves a lot faster in these media. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
[an air raid begins on Nagasaki. At a prison camp, a young lieutenant sets all the prisoners free]
Young Yashida: You! Go! Go!
Logan: [in a pit] 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.

The Spin Off Movie Wolverine Deserved,
21 April 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Wolverine is a great movie with a very well written storyline and a talented cast.My was very pleased with this movie,Wolverines first spin off film was extremely mediocre and had so many flaws,this movie made up for that,I'm not saying its perfect but it certainly is the solo movie that Wolverine deserves,he's a great character and Hugh Jackman does a great job playing him.The ending is without a doubt my favourite part,it was just such a fun and unexpected scene,I won't spill anything,but it is definitely a set up for X-Men: Days of Future Past.Fans of the X-Men series and Wolverine in particular will be very pleased with the Wolverine and I would definitely recommend it.

After Wolverine ends up in Japan,he gets caught up in some major forces that causes to face his own inner demons.

Best Performance:Hugh Jackman Worst Performance:Tao Okamoto
