Two mutant brothers, Logan and Victor, born two hundred years ago, suffer childhood trauma and have only each other to depend on. Basically, they're fighters and killers, living from war to war throughout U.S. history. In modern times, a U.S. Colonel, Stryker, recruits them and other mutants as commandos. Logan quits and becomes a logger, falling in love with a local teacher. When Logan refuses to rejoin Stryker's crew, the Colonel sends the murderous Victor. Logan now wants revenge.Written by
This is the first movie to insert the X-Men characters into real-world historical events: the American Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, and the 1979 Three Mile Island accident. See more »
(at around 44 mins) When Logan escapes from the facility where he got the adamantium fused to his bones, he makes an "X" in the wall, but the middle sections, which are not connected to anything, do not fall. See more »
SPOILER: There are two scenes set after the closing credits. The film's main post-credits scene is of the Deadpool, still alive after being decapitated, reaching for his head, leading into Deadpool (2016). An alternate post-credits scene seen (only on the DVD) is of Wolverine in a Japanese bar, leading into The Wolverine (2013). During the original theatrical run, which scene you saw was random depending on your theater; the home video version features the Deadpool scene after the credits and the Japanese bar scene is available on the two-disc DVD as a deleted scene.

German theatrical version was cut by the distributor before submission to the FSK to secure a "Not under 16" rating (the killing of the old couple is shortened, you don't see Wolverine igniting the gasoline). Ironically, the uncut version, submitted for the home video release, was rated "Not under 16" as well, thus rendering the cut theatrical version completely unnecessary. See more »
This movie gives us all the screen time for Wolverine that we wanted in the first 3 X-men films. In fact I like this movie BETTER than the first 3 X-men movies. I don't understand the severe criticism. I could only find 3 things wrong with the movie:
The opening backstory was a little stupid. Deadpool wasn't...Deadpool. The ending could've been better.
As far as Deadpool's treatment, which seems to be the biggest critique of this movie...This was Wolverine's movie, i feel like if Deadpool was proper, he'd kinda steal the show. But conservative comic book criticism aside...Deadpool's new take was kinda cool to be honest.
But back to Wolverine, it's a revenge story. Lots of action. Lots of slashing and stabbing. Explosions. It's everything you'd want from a movie about Wolverine. I loved it.
