Hugh Jackman gives a terrific performance and works well with Dafne Keen. Their relationship has heart and care for one another. The action sequences are amazing and from the opening scene you can tell this will be a superhero movie that is not going to hold back on its action sequences. I do wish Wolverine and X-23 could have done more fight scenes together and complemented each other in combat, yet the scenes were still entertaining. From the emotional relationship to the plot and character of wolverine this film had my interest most of the time. This is a great superhero film that is not like most where it has the need relate to other superheros or other films, but instead has its own movie that excels. A film that reminds me of The Last of Us game and is truly a heartfelt and entertaining film.
