Opens up tomorrow at midnight. Not much interest here? Have ya'll lost faith because of Origins? This one is actually 74% at RT right now.


Also, if you do go to see it, remember to stay for after the credits scene.

BOX OFFICE: THE WOLVERINE Now On Course For $75-80M Opening Weekend

The Wolverine slashes his way back into theaters this Friday, and the Hugh Jackman-starrer is now expected to gross a solid $75-80M in its opening weekend (higher than the previously reported $70M, but still lower than the $85M debut for 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

Saw it last night. Just OK, IMO. Some parts were great. Some were bland.

The movie didn't really have that comic book feel to it. It felt like watching a mans adventure and he happens to have healing powers and claws. Overall, it is a good film and it probably has the most character development and that is a good thing considering this is the 5th Wolverine film (6th if you include 1st Class). Hugh wouldn't win any Oscars for his acting but he really delivered a good performance as Logan/Wolverine.

Movie isn't perfect and I can see it getting a love or hate relationship with the audience. I did like it though. I do suggest you go see it and judge for yourself. It is a stand alone film minus the mid-credit scene and much better than Origins.


Now for some spoilers...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
There were a lot of WTF moments that I did not like and felt like it needed to be touched on. First off, Wolverine is a mutant so how does a mechanical bug in his heart slows down or remove his powers? This needed to be explained. The same with how Yashida intended to take Wolverines healing power, how does drilling through his sliced up adamantium claws give healing powers? I assume it is sucking up Wolverines dna but I am not really sure but event then, why does he has to drill through the adamantium? Is the dna inside the bone the only thing that gives Wolverine his powers?

Then Logan activating SilverSamuraiBots sword when he used two hands, why and how does that happen? And why didn't he slice him up into pieces after cutting the head off? Instead he tackles him so they both fall to the bottom floor. Just a head scratcher there.

There a few more that you really have to stretch and let go to enjoy the film but those just stuck to me that it felt it needed a minute of explanation.

I also wish there was more traditional Silver Samurai, that SSBot was just meh. I really wish they delved more into SS instead of just being touched on.

And losing his adamantium claws was also so-so, felt like Fox just wanted to show off bone claws, which also felt like a stretch because it just grew out of nowhere. I mean the remnant of the adamantium claw was still inside him but these bone claws just pops right out over it? Just one of those stretch your imagination and move on type of deals.

Ending was a bit underwhelming, could have ended better. Also felt like they left it open for another stand alone film that happens before DofP with the 2 year gap and him having access to a jet w/ Yukio on his side, they probably are planning another solo adventure with him later on.

All these complaints are passable though, they aren't as horrid as Origins WTF moments.

Not a WTF moment but Wolverine is a horny dude, every time he had a dream/hallucination with Jean, she is on her nightie. Not complaining because hey, it is Famkes/Jeans bewbs on the big screen but it just seems weird he sees her that way when he is sleeping and it was kind of distracting at time. :lol And when she was saying goodbye to Logan in the end and she said she is all alone, I wanted to say Cyclops is there with you b*tch! If she opened that there in the end and then Cyclops was standing to greet her, I would have marked so much!


They also better explain how ProfX got his body back. Some are saying in the end credit of X3, that the body he transferred his mind to was his twin so that could explain it. I found it funny that dude had to weave around the people he froze to get to Logan. :lol I was hoping he finally had the hover wheel chair too, would have taken that mid-credit scene to the next level.

Also for the action...

Anyone else felt like the ninjas were wasted? That could have been such an epic battle, make an extended 5-7 minutes of slicing up ninjas left and right, really show off that berserker mode but it was cut short and they were gone in that final showdown.

At the end, I was thinking, "did Cyclops just get cuckold?"

RFX, not sure if you've checked out the Blu-Ray rip of Wolverine but the action scenes are considerably better (read: actual blood and violence) compared to the theatrical cut. The ninja clan fight at the end is extended as well.

I just finished downloading it, will check it out this weekend.


And that deleted scene should have ended the film, would have felt so epic.

^ Pretty cool nod but I was fine with them ending it with the post-credits scene featuring Mags and Prof. X. Probably my favourite post-credits scene in these comic book movies in a long time.

Oh, well that was the mid-credit scene, that would have been included either way.

I mean the ending of the movie, it was the same with the costume scene cut out really.
