Hugh Jackman confirmed on having discussions with director James Mangold about test screening a PG-13 rated cut and an R rated cut, but did not comment on filming sequences for them. Although the film was confirmed to be rated PG-13 via a tweet from James Mangold saying "it's PG-13, but don't worry, it ain't Bambi (1942)." An unrated/extended cut is confirmed exclusively for the 3D BLU-RAY release. 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.

For those wondering why this movie has such a low rating, it could be due to the fact that tons of reviews are a 3 out of 10 based on facts the reviewers missed when watching the movie. Tons and tons of reviews complain about plot holes, when said plot holes were addressed in the movie themselves and weren't really holes at all. So don't take the low rating to heart.
This movie has some amazing action and acting. You get to see the character of Logan lost and adrift, start to learn about what it means to exist in a world where all those around him are mortal and will die. The scenery is great, the acting is great and the story follows pretty well the comic to the screen. Are their differences, yes, quite a few. So if you are one of those types that can't appreciate the two mediums for being different and having to portray stories differently, then don't watch this movie.
Overall this movie has a great story that keeps you engrossed in the movie. You quite often can feel the anguish and loneliness that Logan feels. You also get to see The Wolverine as the lead, as the loner and as the bad ass he really is. You see him fight with who he really is and what he wishes he could be. For a comic movie, the story is much deeper than usual and makes for a great watch.
