From Bleeding Cool

This is a good film. It’s not quite as good as it wants to be. But it ain’t just another superhero flick, and you’ve got to reward that ambition. Besides; it’s a whole lot better than the first Wolverine solo joint.

Not to sound like a fanboy already, ah damn it I will anyway, but those two negative reviews are from british newspapers, they could not review their way out of a paper bag.

No journalist worth a thing wants to end up doing film reviews for a british newspaper, its where you go when your career is heading down a deadend and you cant get a proper journalistic job in sports or politics, thats just the way british newspapers work.

Actual proper film journalists can be trusted however and the fact that Empire and Total Film liked the film gives me great confidence. Even more importantly actual comic book fans who have seen it seem to like it even more, like Poni-Boy, so this gives me great confidence

This should be exciting to watch... hopefully this continue the way they are. Would love this to get a great RT score.

EDIT: Love the slash film video! We've always had similar tastes, so now I'm almost certain I'm going to love this film. Especially with all the talk of how subtle it is. Subtlety is what I adore about Bryan's 2 films, and what I found missing from every film since X2, including First Class.

A ton of new twitter reactions to the film just showed up. Lot of people saying it's great.

Esquire Magazine ‏@EsquireUK 14m
We just got out of The Wolverine. Damn good. Hugh Jackman was brilliant.

Zehra Taylor-Gencer ‏@ZehraTG 18m
Already thought seeing The Wolverine today was going to be great, then @RealHughJackman and James Mangold walk in. Brilliant film and guys.

Georgi Kay ‏@GeorgiKay 23m
Just saw the multimedia premiere of The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman gave an intro, awesome film!

Josh D ‏@jdorgu 21m
#TheWolverine was sickkk! Everyone should watch it when it comes out... And watch it to the end!!! After the credits there's a mental bit

Darren Steer ‏@SirSteer 17m
Just attended the screening for @WolverineMovie and #HughJackman just happens to be here! #crazy! Epic movie

Matthew Rodgers ‏@MainstreamMatt 15m
I didnt expect to say this, but #TheWolverine was excellent. Stay seated at the end for one of the best Marvel credit stings yet!

Sarah Rappaport ‏@SarahRapp 14m
Really enjoyed The Wolverine despite my superhero movie fatigue. It was very fun and well-made.
Tom Butler ‏@TomButler 12m
Pleasantly surprised by The Wolverine. It's solidly entertaining and lots of fun. Doozy of a mid-credit sequence too, stick around for it.
Misha ‏@multiclassgeek 11m
Saw #TheWolverine at a preview screening. Good film. Better than Origins. Great mythos nods. Fascinating storytelling. BEST. STINGER. EVER

Sam Eads ‏@SamFirstNews 11m
#TheWolverine was awesome! Even better that it was introduced by @RealHughJackman & director James Mangold in person. Wasn't expecting that!

Jack Pelling ‏@jrpelling 11m
Must say I'm very surprised that The Wolverine passed uncut at 12A. I definitely wouldn't be comfortable taking anyone under 12.

Teague Emery ‏@Teague123 9m
Really enjoyed #TheWolverine, good to see a superhero film with some intrigue rather that just OMGTHATBLOWSUP!!!

Whoa are these reviews counted on rottentomatoes? Because if they are the movie is on pace for at least a 70%.

What culture's review has been added to RT. Now 4/5 reviews are positive. Of course it's been bound to go up and down.

And just like that, the score is up. Prepare for a roller coaster of percentage changes.

I believe this is from our very own X-Maniac!
