The Wolverine

Hugh Jackman takes Logan (aka Wolverine) to Japan, where he must fight ancient demons disguised as samurai, as well as his own notions of what and why he is.

In the much-anticipated second of his X-Men character’s solo outings,

Logan (Jackman) has travelled to Japan and is soon embroiled in a life-or-death struggle with an old foe. But being on foreign soil surrounded by factors he’s unfamiliar with – including samurais with flashing blades – he’s well out of his comfort zone both physically and emotionally. Can he muster his inner strength to emerge more powerful or is it the start of a decline? The Wolverine takes the X-Man to visually stunning new heights.

New-to-the-genre Mangold (WALK THE LINE, 3:10 TO YUMA) brings fresh ideas and heightened tension to the suitably dramatic screenplay, co-written by Christopher McQuarrie (VALKYRIE, JACK REACHER) and Mark Bomback (TOTAL RECALL, DIE HARD 4.0), while cinematographer Ross Emery (THE MATRIX) supplies the visual magic that fuels the film’s splendid 3D presentation.

Logan’s unexpected vulnerability when confronted by a bygone foe and Jackman’s proven talent to get quite literally under Wolverine’s skin make this arguably the best sci-fi action hero adventure of the year.
