The Wolverine (2013) Film Review

the-wolverine-poster1-405x600

During World War Two, Logan (Hugh Jackman) is being held in a POW camp in Nagasaki when the atom bomb is dropped. He saves the life of an officer, then in the present day, he is summoned to say goodbye to the now-dying, elderly Yashisa (Hiroyuki Sanada), but the invitation is not what it seems, and heaps of running, chasing and fighting ensues.

Spectacular and stunning, with a whole heap of Japanese sensibilities and style. I found the start a bit odd – if Wolverine is so amazing, how did he end up as a prisoner of war? And later, when he is having issues regenerating, why does that not hurt more? But perhaps I am being a bit picky – I really liked it.
