In terms of character though, I thought this was easily the best jfh we've ever seen on screen, with X2 being in second place.
yes, a prequel. Just look at the movie title. "the wolverine". I was expecting where wolverine learned his fighting arts. Why he went to Japan in the first place. And why he left. etc.
Everything about this movie felt like an origins movie with the exception of it actually taking place after x3. There was even a scene where he goes "I'm the wolverine". The cliche line for any super hero origin movie ("I'm batman", "its Spiderman!").
Its obivious they changed it to a revisit story at the last minute due to dofp.
