Goofs

Pretty much everything about the Nagasaki bombing is wrong. In the film...

  • ...the planes are coming in low enough to be clearly seen
  • ...it is sunny weather with few clouds
  • ...there is a panic, as if onlookers know what is about to happen
  • ...the bomb carries an audible whistle, and falls only for a few seconds
  • ...the explosion focal point is at ground level
  • ...the initial heat/light flash is rather harmless
  • ...the detonation is shown as a black smoke-ball
  • ...the sound is heard immediately on detonation
  • ...the shock-wave carries fire with it


...where as in reality: it was a cloudy day; the destruction of Hiroshima was not widely known, so there was no panic; the small number of planes was dismissed as a reconnaissance flight; they came in at high altitude, above 30 000 feet / 9000 meters; the bomb did not carry a whistle, and fell for nearly a minute; the explosion happened at 500 meters altitude; the initial flash would have instantly scorched and blinded Yashida severely; the explosion was silent until several seconds later at that distance; the initial fireball was larger, and was not black smoke; the sound from it took several seconds to reach that distance; the shock-wave would have come sooner to the camp; the shock-wave did not carry fire with it, certainly not to the point of creating a raging but short-lived fire storm.

However(!) all of that is a dream, within a dream, in a universe slightly different from ours. See more »

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.

Wolverine: A revival note for the franchise...
16 December 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

James Mangold, director of 3:10 to Yuma, presented wolverine as a revival for the long dead x-men franchise. After the devastating display in X-men: Last stand, which was crucified by both fans and critics, for it's blind treatment that even killed it's principle characters, X-men series was struggling to hold on the screen. Two prequels were released, one as an origin story for wolverine and the other depicted the revelry between professor x and magneto. The new wolverine works as a sequel to x3, and tries to lead a path for the series in future. Taking place in Japan, Wolverine deals with the inner struggle of Logan, who grieves about the death of Jean Grey. He questions his eternity as a curse, and wanders around alone. A man, who Logan saved before a long time ago offers him a cure, which will make him mortal. Logan's decisions, and subsequent incidents makes the movie. Hugh Jackman, as usual with his signature role, shines. Supporting cast, including Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Will Yun Lee, does justice to their roles. Mangold, with his character-oriented approach, helped the movie to fall out from comic treatment. What lacks in Wolverine is it's explosive nature. The movie emphasize only on Logan. His grieve and his attempts to overcome it. No other characters, except Viper, is mutant here. That made the movie to look like a unique one in the franchise. Also, Wolverine leaves a number of loose ends, like what happened to the other mutants like Storm and Colossus. Let's see next year's X-men days future past answers them all.....
