Wolverine Claws Its Way to the Top

Wolverine is many times better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Here Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) "fleshes out" his character in Japan. Read more

Wolverine is the Man

Lots of fun for Wolverine fans. Lots of action in this one, and Logan doesn't have any other mutants to help him in this one.

Skip it and watch something else.

I think the film was mediocre at best, the dialog, special effects and filming style looked as if they belong to a B movie of sorts. Read more

Best Wolverine story yet.

The Extended version is the way to go if you like great fight scenes. I watched the first 15 minutes in 3D as I finally got a 3D capable TV and Blu-ray set up. Read more

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE UNRATED CUT AND THE THEATRICAL CUTNovember 19, 2013

By Senor Zoidbergo TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE

Format:Blu-ray

The Unrated Cut runs about 12 minutes longer than the Theatrical Cut, and contains several new scenes including a much expanded ninja action scene. Wolverine drops a few more choice curse words and there is now CG-gore. I'd say it's more like a hard PG-13 rather than an R-rated cut.

The UNRATED Cut is much better than the theatrical cut.

**Note, SPOILERS follow, so read at your own risk**.

1) There is more gore, but primarily CGI blood sprays. Some shots of Wolverine's claws going through people's limbs, but nothing explicit. No graphic dismemberments.

2) Wolverine drops a few more f-bombs.

3) Some of the opening scenes depicting Wolverine at the POW camp are a little longer.

4) The scene involving Wolverine, an arrow, and the hunter is slightly longer and more brutal.

5) Slightly longer dialogue with Yukio on the way to the plane.

6) Relationship between Mariko and Yashida and Shingen and Yashida is better fleshed out in the unrated cut.

7) A new scene where Yashida asks Logan his age.

8) A new scene with Yashida talking to Shingen on his deathbed, telling him, "You are not the man to lead Yashida".

9) A new scene at the love hotel where the Yakuza show up and get into a fight with Wolverine. Mariko intervenes and demonstrates some fighting skill as well.

10) Wolverine's operation on himself is bloodier.

11) The fight scene between Shingen and Wolverine is slightly longer and now depicts Shingen rather graphically cutting into Wolverine's shoulder blade (no blood though).

12) A new scene where Viper gives Hadana poison for his arrows, which he later uses to bring down Wolverine at the ninja fight.

Film review: The Wolverine (2013) July 28, 2013

By A.R. Schultz

Format:Blu-ray

Comparing "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to "The Wolverine" is like comparing apples to oranges. They are both about Marvel's burly and animalistic Wolverine, but they could not be any more different. Origins seemed to explore a bit of Wolvie's past under the framework of the prior X-Men movies (i.e. familiar characters, settings, and themes), but unfortunately it didn't hit home like the prior X-Men films. The writing fell flat, because 20th Century Fox took odd twists and turns with fan favorites like Gambit and Deadpool and then never expanded on them in future films like they promised. Instead of bridging Wolverine's backstory to the acclaimed X-Men trilogy, Fox ended up widening the gap.

However, "The Wolverine," takes an entirely different approach to the eponymous character. Audiences get to see the Adamantium and claws stripped away in a more emotionally driven film. Wolverine is facing an existential crisis. Following the events of "X-Men: The Last Stand" filmgoers get to see the Wolverine battle is own mortality, or rather near-immortality, during a series of dream sequences centering-around Jean Grey, which is reprised by award-winning Dutch actor, Famke Janssen. This creates a great underlying plot, and immediately sets "The Wolverine" apart from the other X-Men films.

Surprisingly enough, "The Wolverine" closely follows the original comic book volume of Wolverine, Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's four-part miniseries, that set the tone and standard for Wolverine and his story arcs. Even though the film is set after the events of "X-Men: The Last Stand," instead of "X-Men Origins," "The Wolverine" accurately showcases the events of the 1982 comic book series.

The Definitive Wolverine Movie July 27, 2013

By Chris Johnson

Format:DVD

I Have too admit this movie is a little slow in the beginning but after it finds a pace it is an excellent movie that is Much better than its predecessor X-Men Origins:Wolverine. People Expecting great action sequences like The Avenger be warned because even though it does have GREAT Action Sequences (for example, The Bullet train scene), it is mostly A character driven story that dwells deep into Wolverine's inner troubles as well as the new ones he faces during his journey in Japan. The movie also has a Surprise Ending that will satisfy any x-men movie fan an will make the hardcore X-Men fanboys(like me) go BAT SHIT CRAZY(in a good way).
This movies has its flaws but it is A solid movie in the X-Men franchise.
My Grade:8.9/10.

For adults, just as it should be! November 21, 2013

By Luminus

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Amazon Verified Purchase

Wow! This is just a review of the difference brought by the Extended cut. Let me just make one thing clear, there's no version of Wolverine that's acceptable for children. I don't know why Hollywood even tries. A PG-13 berserker killer is still a berserker killer. With that said, this extended version has more cussing. I'm talking F-bombs and S-bombs here. The violence is turned up to the point where Wolverine stabs one of the Yakuza and his blood (or guts) splatter onto the screen (Yes!). There are other scenes with blood in them that I didn't notice in the theatrical version, but nothing too gory except maybe for the ninja scene. Speaking of which, there's a a whole scene with the ninjas that was cut out of the theatrical cut that is so deliciously bloody and violent that it reminded me of Sceptic Avenger, only with blood (Saints Row 2 fans will know the reference). If you're a Wolverine fan, don't even bother with the PG-13 version. What's the point? This guy is a killer and you came to see what he does best, but what he does isn't very nice.

I still have to drop a star for the stupid robot, that worthless mutant called Viper (in name only), and the apparent continuity flaw in that Wolverine appears to have memories from World War II. As far as I remember, everything from at least the weapon X program and back is a blank. It could be argued that him visiting Nagasaki jogged his memory of his time there, but he has a memory of this on the way to Japan as he looks out the window of the plane. Very confusing and annoying. Also, there's no mention of the mutant cure from X3, which is ridiculous considering why Wolverine is brought to Japan in the first place (before the truth is revealed). Wolverine acts like removing mutant power is impossible.


Editorial Reviews

In 2013's summer of superheroes, The Wolverine breaks a lot of rules of the genre and comes out a winner for the most unexpected of reasons. Both the movie and the man (make that super-man) are driven by vengeance, anger, and the existential angst of the whole "with great power comes great blah, blah, blah" thing. But The Wolverine has a sense of higher responsibility and a quietude that distinguishes it from the likes of Iron Man 3, Man of Steel, and even the numerous X-Men movies that forged its legacy. With Hugh Jackman reprising the role (for the sixth time) that made him a movie star, The Wolverine is the least like any of its predecessors for the way it prefers subdued tension and real dramatic buildup of character rather than all-out frenzied action. There are plenty of elegantly realized set pieces that make visual sense and have direct bearing on the story (not necessarily things that are a priority in other mega-budget actioners), but the moments of talk and gentler sense of introspection that director James Mangold carefully oversees are more important and equally as satisfying. The events of The Wolverine take place in the aftermath of 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand, with Wolverine/Logan's grief over the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) still raw. He's become a hermit somewhere in the frozen north, still seething with inward rage. The appearance of a lethal Japanese pixie named Yukio (Rila Fukushima) distracts him with a message from an old friend who wants to say goodbye. He's whisked to an idealized, manga-inspired Japan where billionaire industrialist Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi) is about to pass on. Logan saved him near the end of World War II (a truly haunting sequence), a debt Yashida wishes to repay by relieving Logan of the curse of his immortality and the healing power of his adamantine bones (and claws). Mangold has cited numerous samurai films as inspiration, and The Wolverine stands out as a classic eastern western for the thematic elements it incorporates from Japanese cinema and the iconic American genre. The other important characters in this cunningly entertaining morality play are Yashida's beloved daughter Mariko (Tao Okamoto), who battles ethereal dream encounters with Jean Grey for Logan's heart, and his evil son Shingen (Hiroyuki Sanada). There's also Yashida's creepy, statuesque doctor, who we later get to know as Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova), another mutant who may actually have the power to kill Wolverine. The story is loosely based on a popular Wolverine comic series from 1982 that sets the stage for all the mythical Japanese elements, including a final battle with a scary adamantine samurai warrior-bot. Another super-cool CGI action scene is set on top of a bullet train going top speed (believe it or not, Jackman's enormous, ripped, straining, hyper-vascularized pecs and neck were not computer-enhanced). The Wolverine is an unexpected success in the year's blockbuster field for action that is in service of the story and for a temperament that pays homage to samurai ronin legends as well as James Bond-style summer-movie joyousness. That it is 2013's least superhero-clichéd comic book fantasy is also high praise. And with The Wolverine still cursed with immortality, there will no doubt be more praises as the X-Men universe continues to expand (be sure not to look away before the credits are through). --Ted Fry
