Goofs

Pretty much everything about the Nagasaki bombing is wrong. In the film...

  • ...the planes are coming in low enough to be clearly seen
  • ...it is sunny weather with few clouds
  • ...there is a panic, as if onlookers know what is about to happen
  • ...the bomb carries an audible whistle, and falls only for a few seconds
  • ...the explosion focal point is at ground level
  • ...the initial heat/light flash is rather harmless
  • ...the detonation is shown as a black smoke-ball
  • ...the sound is heard immediately on detonation
  • ...the shock-wave carries fire with it


...where as in reality: it was a cloudy day; the destruction of Hiroshima was not widely known, so there was no panic; the small number of planes was dismissed as a reconnaissance flight; they came in at high altitude, above 30 000 feet / 9000 meters; the bomb did not carry a whistle, and fell for nearly a minute; the explosion happened at 500 meters altitude; the initial flash would have instantly scorched and blinded Yashida severely; the explosion was silent until several seconds later at that distance; the initial fireball was larger, and was not black smoke; the sound from it took several seconds to reach that distance; the shock-wave would have come sooner to the camp; the shock-wave did not carry fire with it, certainly not to the point of creating a raging but short-lived fire storm.

However(!) all of that is a dream, within a dream, in a universe slightly different from ours. See more »

Young Yashida: You! Go! Go!
Logan: [in a pit] 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.

Best Wolverine to date
24 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Saw The Wolverine. Masterfully choreographed action and best train fight scene ever. The best Wolverine yet and Hugh Jackman delivers. Thoughtfully paced with a perfect blend of action and story. You don't need to know anything about the previous movies since this one can stand alone. The story may get in the way at times for those who only enjoy mindless action. I will go see it again without the 3D effect to see if that made any difference. The only drawback for me was the glare from theater stair's runner lights on my 3D glasses but that had nothing to do with the movie. They threw in a nice little surprise for the true fans just after the end credits started to roll.
