I like the fact this one references "Black Rain".

I'm so impatient with seeing RT stuck at 69% based on 16 reviews, while I see you guys posting all these reviews that I decided to tally up the "results" so far and register here so I could post.

Positive 39
Mixed/Negative 13
Score 75% Positive

I didn't go as far as to compile all the links together, but here's the list. There were a few duplicate postings. Sorry, I only started keeping track of the "star" rating part-way through my tally.

Great job sir.

I somehow bet some of those positive reviews will not end up on RT for some reason, but thats a nice list with such a majority in the positive its great to see. I'm never usually worried about review scores but for some reason this film I have been and have been rooting for it to get a decent reaction, which it has.

It certainly gives me hope going into my viewing, I wasnt expecting ground breaking genre defining, but after the last effort just a decent Wolverine film is all I wanted, this looks like it has a chance. At the end of the day the only score that will count to me is my own one but this has been great fun over the weekend finding and reading these reviews.

Seems another fresh review will be added soon since it's at 72% now, and only 12 fresh out 17 are showing up, but it says they have 13 fresh out of 18 right now.

A positive review 3.5/5 stars

The Wolverine is by far the best of the series; a compliment that comes with a massive caveat: I'm not a fan of what's come before. Nonetheless, not only does this work as an X-Men movie, but it also works as a movieall on its lonesome.

Thanks! I was just REALLY wondering how far above the "fresh/rotten" line it was moving, and I felt a lot better about it after coming up with a score based on what was posted here. Now that RT is moving again, I expect I won't update my own list. I know there are many reviews still to come, but I'm hopeful and optimistic this one will stay safely in the fresh column.

I know I will like it either way.

That's an interesting/weird perspective, someone who didn't like any of the previous movies (what!) and liked this one.

Ugh, the Empire review showed up on RT in the rotten column. Switch one over from my categories above. Now at 68%. 13/7 out of 20. Wait, in my math universe, that would be 65%. Whatever, must be mid-update.

After 20 reviews, The Wolverine has a 65% on RT. At this point, XMO:W had 55% after 20 reviews.

That's a bit odd Empire gave it 3/5 which on their website is described as "Good".

How can something be described as Good but also Rotten?? Logic doesn't seem at play here.

Strange how over the weekend 80% of reviews I have seen and posted have been positive but the ones added to RT seem to be only the mixed and negative ones.

Strange how these things go

The Wolverine is now at 65% RT score... At this early to have this score it looks like it'll fall under 60% or lower once the movie is release. It will finish it's score rotten. Seems like it's not like by critics just like how MOS wasn't like by them yet MOS was awesome and love by GA. I still have faith it'll pull the same as MOS to be successful at the BO.

Will 'The Wolverine' TV Spot Save Its Box Office? [Trailer & Pictures]by Jack de Aguilar | 22 July 2013

Ahead of The Wolverine's release, check out the new TV spot.

The Wolverine hasn’t even hit cinemas yet, but considering the reviews – and they’re not pretty – it’s going to take some pretty ardent superhero fans to brave a trip to see Hugh Jackman’s reincarnation as the bladed yellow wolf-man.

It's still too early to judge how the score will end up.

Where do you get that it's not like by the critics so early? even the ones that didn't gave it a positieve score seems to agree that it's at least a good movie with a few missteps.
