Default Re: "Are These All The Reviews You Brought?" -The Official Review Thread

A positive Review from the very snobby Slant Magazine. They call it the Best Superhero Movie of the year.
The trained actors on screen (including Fukushima and Hiroyuki Sanada) engage in breathless, rivetingly captured swordplay, and always register as bona fide warriors. The same goes for Jackman, whose physical dedication to this role is its own form of heroism. His veins bulging like exposed tree roots, the actor aptly looks almost the same as he did 13 years ago, when Wolverine first met Jean and the gang. The uncanny visual continuity only further grounds the character, and while he goes through motions typical to this genre's protagonists (moral dilemma, emasculation-by-nemesis, acceptance of power, Christ-like exultation), they aren't often glaring deficits. The Wolverine may be the year's best superhero movie because, for a sufficient amount of time, it doesn't feel like a superhero movie at all.
