‘The Wolverine’ further proof Jackman owns character

Movie Review

(Continued)

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

What made this chapter stand out the most was the element that Jackman displayed in this familiar character in a side that was much more vulnerable on every level than what we’ve seen before. Instead of this unstoppable butt kicking, wise cracking machine, we struggle to cope with the reality that he may not overcome this new weight on his shoulders.

Ultimately, the only things stopping this from topping my one perfect score film of the year so far is that it does falter a bit with an average soundtrack and barely a passing fancy appearance of one Wolverine’s most intriguing villains, the Silver Samurai (which is not to say the way they did it was not good at all, but rather limited it to mere plot device). Still, I do recommend it for those about teenage years and up and feel like it was a perfect Segway into “Days of Future Past.” It’s worth a respectable three and three fourths out of five ninjas for “The Wolverine.”
