I've been mulling The Wolverine over lately, and as a pretty big Hugh Jackman and Wolverine fan, I can't escape the fact that I was only half happy with the movie, mostly enjoying the first half of it.
I was a bit underwhelmed overall to be honest. It was above average, but lacking what it took to make it memorable or great.
Hugh Jackman definitely made it worth it though, his performance was excellent. He brought a kind of aggressiveness and flare to the role which really impressed, seeing as how he can invigorate this character despite having played him for 10 years. The final half though just didn't do it for me, mostly with the plot and writing and decreasing quality of the action.
I've collected my thoughts in this short video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rz6D0JM5ebg
And thought I'd share it with the fans who most likely know Wolverine much more than I do, since I'm a Batman and Spider-Man guy most of all.
I'm very eager to hear your thoughts on the movie, especially from those who loved it and can talk about why.
Thanks for your time
