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.

Throughout the film Wolverine has flashbacks to the dropping of the atomic bomb and yet in the first X-Men film, Jean Grey states that he has no memory of what happened to him and in X-Men Origins Wolverine, he is shot in the head by William Stryker and wakes up with having lost his memory. Since this has been established twice, how can he remember the events of the war? 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 a big fan of the x-men franchise but this movie had be thinking I'm gonna like it and I did, for the first half that is. The movie takes off pretty well, attains cruising altitude and then suddenly drops like dead weight. They had everything going well for this movie until Wolverine decides to let his balls do the thinking for him. Half way through the movie they must've remembered that sex sells and so do unnecessary explosions and stunts. From what I understood, old man had alzhimers, cute babe had obsessive compulsive disorder, the cute doctor had PMS and wolverine had a mid life crisis. By the time I got to the end I was only waiting for it to be over.
