My only real nitpick was the lack of Logan fighting Ninjas. I expected that scene to last a little longer, and I was disappointed, as that is essential iconography from Claremont and Miller's book.

But, nonetheless, I don't think I've ever been so happy to see those bone claws before. A real crowd-pleaser.

Oh, and that post-credits scene? My excitement for DOFP exploded. Fox is finally getting it right.
My preferred climax

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
would have been more grounded, grittier, and closer to the Wolverine mini-series: longer Wolverine and Yukio vs ninjas, Yukio vs Viper, Wolverine vs Shingen wearing Silver Samurai armor. I didn't like the Yashida twist. It would have been the best superhero movie ever if it maintained the tone and mood of the 1st 2 acts IMO.
