    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    This pissed-off man of Adamantium claws is stalking new ground (Japan), and his fight with yakuza on top of Tokyo's speeding bullet train is a wowser. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The Wolverine shows that, while originality would be nice, a little novelty and enthusiasm in the presentation of the familiar can be quite enough. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    An intermittently exciting action film anchored by a strong performance by Jackman, who embodies Wolverine like no one else could. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Apart from Khodchenkova, who displays the acting acumen of a runway model and gives new meaning to the term Russian mole (she's the villainous vixen of the tale, suited up in high heels and slinky, scaly couture), the cast of The Wolverine is uniformly good. show more

    Good thing the Aussie star has the role down to a science, since the rest of The Wolverine is a howler. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Until a third act that collapses in a harebrained heap, the director largely succeeds in keeping the more cartoonish aspects at bay, roughing up the surface with organically staged fight scenes and, crucially, raising the stakes by stripping his hitherto indestructible hero of his self-healing powers. show more

    The Wolverine reveals itself to be a film in desperate need of a point, in dire need of consequences and in a wandering search of any semblance of emotional weight. show more

    I'd like to credit Mangold, along with writers Christopher McQuarrie, Mark Bomback and Scott Frank for their good intentions; the smaller scope and lighter tone of their film is a tonic after bloated doom and gloom of "Man of Steel." show more

    Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times

    The Wolverine is one of the better comic-book movies of 2013, thanks in large part to an electric performance by Hugh Jackman. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    It's simply a more focused scenario than usual, full of violence done up with a little more coherence and visceral impact than usual. show more

    Wasn\'t horrible but very predictable and, honestly, not what I wanted out of another Wolverine movie (do we even need another Wolverine movie??). The entire World War 2 era flashback seemed a bit of a stretch and really didn\'t add to the history of Wolverine, IMHO.

    Not a terrible movie. I never finished watching the first Wolverine movie. But this was OK. Pretty predictable plot and twist but as long as it\'s got adamantium I guess it\'s cool...

    Think Crouching Tiger (without the grace) meets Kill Bill (without the humor). Their offspring would be The Wolverine. What a mish-mash of bad swordplay, terrible dialogue, no humor, and the most ridiculous storyline. The ONLY good part of the film was the clip they showed after the credits of the upcoming X-Men movie. THAT looks wonderful! Perhaps it\'s time Hugh Jackman stuck to X-Men and not let Wolverine out on his own
