    I really enjoyed The Wolverine. But then again I enjoyed X-Men: Origins and X-Men: The Last Stand so maybe I’m biased to enjoy these movies. Regardless, I found The Wolverine to be a pretty fun film, even if it wasn’t the best one in the franchise.

      I enjoyed The Wolverine also. I read a review somewhere that said it was 3/4 of a good movie. It started fast, slowed down, then ended well.

    Looking forward to this, so I’ve skipped this until after I see it. Have you read the comic it’s based on it?

    • EmpathDigital

      Well it’s not based on any one particular comic, but it takes inspiration from a famous run of books by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller which I have read. Unfortunately the comparison doesn’t really do the film any favours, as the comic book series is pretty outstanding.

        I’ve read it, but I prefer Claremonts run on Captain Britain

        • EmpathDigital

          I haven’t read that (I confess I haven’t read much Captain Britain at all) – would you recommend I pick it up?

          • ClaraTheGalvatron

            Yeah, its good. There are 5 collections, and 4 and 5 are the best as that’s when Alan Moore and Alan Davis take over.

    Superb and consummate review, Phil! You write commendably and with great confidence. I especially like the sardonic humor which you have infuse into this, making it an enjoyable read.

    I am disappointed to hear that you found this movie to be of such bad quality. I’m really looking forward to seeing this, but my excitement has been somewhat dampened now. Still, it’s nice to hear that it’s better than its disastrous predecessor, but that’s not much of an accomplishment.

    • EmpathDigital

      Thanks for your kind words! I’m sorry to have dampened your excitement, but if it makes you feel any better I appear to be in the minority for my opinion of the film, so you may well enjoy the film anyway!

    good article, but me and my mates thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

    Personally I thought it was a pretty good movie. I agree with all the negative points you made, but I don’t thing they detracted from the movie as much as you seem to. Sure it wasn’t a sophisticated piece of drama, but it still held up it’s own. I’d have given it a 7.5/10. Now I’m just holding out to see how the next installment goes.
