This is Jackman's sixth portrayal of Logan/Wolverine. See more »
The first scene with Jean and Logan switches between two shots portraying them in bed together. However, in one of the shots, Logan is on his side, and in the other, he is on his back. This results in him appearing to go from his side to his back to his side to his back without actually moving or interrupting the conversation. 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.

I liked this movie a lot. It was slick, intense, good action, good acting all around, well directed and one has to respect the decorum of Mr. Jackman. He was in amazing shape for this movie, his chest and abs were insane, and one has to respect that transformation. That's a lot of work physically, mentally and spiritually all around. I liked where the story went, I thought it was the best one out of the X-men series and the last Wolverine movie.
You can never go wrong with Samurai's and pretty Asian women either who can kick some butt. James Mangold is a fantastic director and I can just imagine he was fighting the producers to keep that ending out of the movie, I won't say the ending, but it was an ending that took away from the movie and I can imagine Mr. Mangold was furious for having to keep it in there. Good movie all around though.
