When a cure is found to treat mutations, lines are drawn amongst the X-Men, led by Professor Charles Xavier, and the Brotherhood, a band of powerful mutants organized under Xavier's former ally, Magneto.
When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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 immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

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.

SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: as Wolverine enters an airport security check, he comes face to face with Magneto and Professor X, who request his assistance for a new threat to mutants. This leads into X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). See more »
James Mangold directed this sixth "X-Men" entry, though the second to focus primarily on Wolverine(Hugh Jackman) which is set after the events of 'The Last Stand', as Wolverine, now living a nomadic existence in the wilderness, is located by a Japanese woman who tells him that a (now) wealthy Japanese man whose life he had saved in WWII(when the two atom bombs were dropped) is now dying, and wants to repay his life debt by offering him a chance to relinquish his immortality by transferring it to him through a new process. Wolverine respectfully refuses, but events spiral out-of-control as someone wants the man's daughter and heir dead, and also wants Wolverine's healing power, which threatens his indestructibility... Hugh Jackman is more than capable of carrying this interesting picture alone with nice Japan locations and story, which will push him in a new direction, and(if you stay through the end credits) into his next "X-Men" adventure.
