In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own near-immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before. Written by
Twentieth Century Fox
The movie is written as a stand-alone story, with very little connection to past or future X-Men films. 20th Century Fox embraced the idea of this film being different, and were even the ones to come up with the title The Wolverine. The story does feature other mutants, and that includes other mutants from the X-Men universe. James Mangold says there was no pressure from the studio to connect this story with the other X-Men films, previous or future. There is no set-up in this story for future films, as far as he knows. Mangold says "Our goal is to make something that doesn't rely on franchise." See more »
During dinner, Mariko removes upright chopsticks from Logan's bowl and places them on the table while explaining it is considered bad luck in Japanese culture. Their conversation continues for a few minutes. Near the end of the scene, the chopsticks are again standing upright again in the bowl and she once more removes them and places on the table.
This is not a goof but it's intended to remark that Logan doesn't take seriously Japanese customs for he repeats the inconvenience some minutes later. During the conversation you can see Logan making some movements in his plate, and he is unseen much of the time, so it's possible that he puts his chopsticks upright again. 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.

This is the first X-Film to not have the title in the opening; it appears at the end of the film. See more »
I'm not sure why this movie has the same score as Origins, it was a much stronger movie imo. I didn't like Iron Samurai or the Viper but somehow this movie worked even with weak antagonists. Some character motives weren't true to themselves but overall this movie was entertaining and a bit different from the rest of the superhero films. This is definitely underrated and what I call a slow burner. The worst of the bunch imo is Origins, X3 and Apocalypse. Days of Future past was neither good or bad from what I remembered (the worst offense lol). I really enjoyed X1, X2, First Class, Logan, The Wolverine and Deadpool.
