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.

I went to see The Wolverine expecting to see some sword fighting and martial arts fighting by the women. I was not disappointed. I especially liked the character of Yukio who was played by Rila Fukushima. I think she was just as good in the film as the Wolverine or Logan. She is smart, witty, funny, and has a great personality. She also doesn't just use her sword, but can fight as well. She has martial arts ability. She seems to enjoy her human abilities and capabilities much more than her precognitive mutant abilities. I recommend this movie if you want to see a lot of strong female characters. I've liked the x men series because all the female characters have something to offer. They are all beautiful and have something to offer in each film, at least that I can remember. Whether they have some mutant capability or not. I would recommend purchasing this film to see the character of Yukio and I don't think you will feel disappointed in what I say. Especially if you like strong female supporting roles.
