|Decent But Lackluster|

cress: I liked this better than 2009's WOLVERINE; it has better character development, the story is more focused, and it's not cheesy.
It just doesn't have much of a WOW factor for a superhero film. A battle on top a train is done well, and the end fight with the Silver Samurai( or whatever he is- fuck I don't know) turns out better than what's shown in the trailer. Wolverine basically plays bodyguard to an Asian hottie, so he's slicing and dicing those that are after her throughout the film. It becomes a bit dull in the middle portion of the film, and I was a bit confused by some of the secondary character's motivations.
It doesn't raise the bar at all, but manages to at least keep the Wolverine character in the conversation of decent comic book films. I really did enjoy the end credits scene that sets up next summers DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. For me, it's a better film than IRON MAN 3.

Rambo: This was a mediocre wolverine movie with ups and downs,Hugh Jackman was good as always as the lead despite the fact that his character was getting ass kicked the entire movie (poor script), there was a lack of a concrete bad ass villain in the movie and as the movie progressed towards it's ending it became more and more generic with a predictable twist in the end.
the good ? there were 2 or 3 good action scenes in the first half of the movie,the fight on top of the train being the best part of the movie.
I think the Wolverine character has been overused and cannot give anything original or interesting anymore.time for a vacation...

koul: Damn this movie was awesome, great acting, a better story with good character development, you actually feel for Logan as he travels on his own after Jeans death and the disbanding of the x-men, great new environment, Mariko and Logan has good chemistry, action scenes are very nice and well done especially the awesome train fight, and stay after the movie for the post credits scene that will blow your mind and sets up for the next X-Men film Days of Future Past
