Re: Let The Claws Do The Talking - Rate & Review "The Wolverine"
Just got back from the screening so these are my immediate thoughts.
Wolverine - Like others have said, this is his most solid performance yet, still a lot of humour and fun to be had but it's underlined with a serious backbone.
Yukio and Mariko - Both contrast each other nicely and there are some wonderful emotional scenes between them.
Viper - Pointless. Her role is satisfactory but they should have just made her a human villain instead (also, how many times did he change costume in the last act, they seem to put her in more leather each time).
Silver Samurai - Predictable and didn't seem to gel well in the film at all. His battle with Shingen should would have made a stronger climax.
In regards to people saying that 'this doesn't feel very comic booky' doesn't necessary make it a more interesting film but does offer a nice change of pace to what we're used to in the summer.
