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 near-immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.Written by

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.

Amusing But Confusing
Wolverine is summoned from his mountainous Canadian home - but not before he as to teach a bunch of animal hating white trash hunters a lesson - to Japan where he meets an old war buddy slash nemesis called Yoshida.
It is a beautiful film with lots of action and sightly settings.
It does become confusing. Sworn allies seen helping become enemies and act like imbeciles. It is unclear why. Wolverine grows a sixth sense and locates people with ease. This is often lazy in writing.
7/10 because it is surely fun, but not as deep as the original X-Men.
