Trivia

The movie was being shot on all 6 sound stages at Fox Studios Australia, a international production facility which was also used for The Matrix (1999), Moulin Rouge! (2001), Mission: Impossible II (2000), Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)_ , Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)_ and Superman Returns (2006). The studio is a strange looking facility as it is partly an abandoned theme park. In 1999m Fox opened the $261 million theme park on the grounds (think an experience like Universal Studios Hollywood). Fox Studios Backlot theme park closed in late 2001 due to poor ticket sales. At the time we were visiting, a big tent was set-up in the closed-down theme park area, housing a Cirque du Soleil show. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Young Yashida: You! Go! Go!
Logan: [in a pit] 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.

no real plot but watchable and bad 3D
24 March 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I always had mixed feelings about flicks about superhero's and the X-men wasn't any exception. Still, you watch them and sometimes are left with a bitter feeling. The spin-off Wolverine gave us a new twist on the X- men story. It's naturally all about the Wolverine Logan but we do have other characters from X-men in it so you have to know a bit of the story and The Wolverine is no exception. It doesn't stand on it's own. Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) do plays an important role even as she's in it for a few minutes. Nevertheless, if you don't know any of the history you can watch it but you will be left with some questions. Especially at the end, be aware that, a thing we do see often nowadays, not to turn the disc on stop, even as the end credits are running suddenly we move back to the flick and it's a really important part. Nothing to do with The Wolverine but with the whole X-men saga.

The flick itself wasn't that bad at all but you have to understand the Japanese world to like this picture because it all take place in Japan and has a mixture of Samurai and Yakuza. I had two problems with this flick, but one I could get over, it doesn't has any blood or cruelty all over the flick, sure, The Wolverine gets hurt but heals himself but I mean, when swords are battling with Logan, we never see swords going into the flesh, or when the wolverine gets mad and smashes his claws into the flesh it's all done off-camera. But I knew that before, it was rated 12 years. But I did had a problem with the 3D. It just never worked out. here and there but I never had the 3D experience I had with other blockbusters. The effects on the other hand are good but not sublime. The train scene is excellent but their were other effects like the healing that I didn't like at all.

Mixed emotions again with the X-men..., simple story line and of course an open ending..For many the best so far in the X-men franchise. It wasn't bad I admit but not a wowser.

Gore 0/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 3/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5
