Odd, Watcmen, while good actually put me to sleep. I did watch the directors cut though, which had a separate animated story interwoven in the movie.

On topic, I found The Wolverine a solid movie, the third act let it down though. The silver samurai fight felt clunky.

And if there is another Wolverine movie after this one, how will he get his adamantium claws back?

Days of Future Past deals with alternate timelines and time travel.
Easy fix.

So...was this entirely a different version from the 2009 film of the same name with Jackman as Wolverine? I really cant tell from the previews...

The "X-men Origins: Wolverine" when it was released with Hugh starring in 2009, wasn't that good.
Thanx

Completely different movie. Different director and writers.

The titles are also completely different. The 2009 movie is called X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the 2013 movie is called The Wolverine.

The first one dealt with weapon X and Wolverine's origins and is a prequel to the X-Men Trilogy

This new one picks up after X-Men 3: The last stand and is loosely based on a story arc from Frank Miller's graphic novel.

It seems your question has been answered but IMO, Origins dropped the ball.
The problem is H-wierd keeps adapting these comic stories for modern cinema fans and not the fans of the original comics. They don't hold true to the original storylines and always seem to lose the edge that made them superior stories to begin with.
Logan shouldn't have been a match for The Blob...he was someone for Colossus to deal with traditionally.
You don't make Deadpool a mime.
Most of the other mutants were kinda pointless except Sabretooth.
The movie company should have been spanked for hiring Ryan Reynolds and Wyclef...what were they thinking?
The ending was convoluted.
The raw release was leaked online before any SPFX were added and THAT didn't help the movie any.
Wolverine's lifting capacity was estimated somewhere in the 500-750lbs range...still within normal human limits...so why was he throwing a speeding motorcycle at a helicopter using only his legs?
I could keep going but I think you get the idea.
One of the worst "mutant" movies to date IMO.

Even THIS guy makes a better Deadpool:



But since this IS a Wolverine thread...

Thank you for replying. I too thought it was so mediocre it was close to being a senseless movie. Like they could have written it better and put a few more $$ into it.

Regarding "Origins", I see now I wasn't alone with my opinion, and Im glad after 2009, I didn't bother renting it again. Would have been a couple hours and dollars of a waste of my time.

Thanks again!

I was watching this yesterday with my son. I said that they could put out a Wolverine movie about him on laundry day and this movie confirmed that. What a piece of crap. I'm mighty glad we got this one from the library. Hate to have spent ANY money on this.
