When bitten by a genetically modified spider, a nerdy, shy, and awkward high school student gains spider-like abilities that he eventually must use to fight evil as a superhero after tragedy befalls his family.
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
Twentieth Century Fox
David Leitch says the stunt work in this film is more gritty, and grounded in reality, in contrast to the previous films. They have decided to tackle more of the stunts using practical means, and not rely as much on post-production CGI. See more »
Wolverine and Mariko are traveling in the same compartment in the Bullet Train. During the fight on the roof of the train, Wolverine and his enemies fall back many compartments. However when one of the assailants looks down through an overhead window, he can still see Mariko, and Wolverine appears way ahead of Mariko's seat.
However, it's not clear that the rest room which Wolverine uses to clean his wounds was in the same compartment of their seats. He could have gone forward an undetermined number of compartments in the train before finding one that was not been used. He runs into the yakuzas just going out of the rest room. 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.

This is not another light and fluffy comic book super hero movie. This movie actually has depth and substance to it, and there are not fight scenes taking place every few minutes like in most comic book movies lately. It is more of a deep character study of the Wolverine. I thought it was unexpectedly good, with Jackman doing a superb job in the lead role, as a tortured hero, who seems as if he no longer wants to go on living his near immortal existence because of deep regrets and guilt he is feeling about things that happened in the past.
But it is not all doom and gloom, there are indeed fight scenes, and they are what you would expect of a summer blockbuster type movie. The last fight scene involving a giant robot-like Samurai is especially spectacular. Just don't expect the fight scenes to be the main focus of the movie, this is more about the Wolverine and his inner struggles of conscience. I liked it very much.
