Seems most of the "fan" sites like it. That's generally a good sign.
Sucks it's not a clear winner. Looks like we've got a good movie on our hands, I was expecting a great one. If they put all they've got into Hugh's favorite storyline, and it only comes out OK, there isn't much hope for an amazing solo Wolverine movie after this. Still, it's been too long, I need my fix of Hugh's Wolverine.
After Wolverine origins, a just good Wolverine movie is all we really ask for.
Yeah, but if the reviews are right, then it's just frustrating that we were so close to an amazing Wolverine movie, but the lame villains ruined it.
I think this assumption is a tad premature.
I'm hoping the reviews are wrong about that, but if they're not, it's pretty frustrating.
Also, Comingsoon/SHH gives it an 8.5/10
Staying tuned for the RT rating is making frustrated!
I really hope this movie stays somewhere 80% to above.
Fabulous review from ComingSoon/SHH! Now I'm really getting pumped up for this movie.
Really starting to remind me of the early buzz First Class received upon it's premiere.
Music to my ears.. Or technically eyes.
Has anyone told Pietro that it's Yukio and not Yuriko??
Reading ComingSoon.net's review
It sounds like the third act is the weakest and Viper isn't great. And Silver Samurai robot could turn off the fans/people.
I hope this doesn't turn out like Iron Man 3 where the fans tore the movie apart.
But at least there's a teaser to DOFP!
So it's a lot like Batman Begins, I suppose? First two acts are all kinds of awesome, delving deep into the characters, then it becomes a fantastical blockbuster comic book movie in the third act. Eh, I'm cool with that, BB is still my all time favorite comic book movie.
As long as the movie is as good as the first X-Men movie (which I rewatched yesterday and I enjoyed it), I'd be content!
That would echo how I felt about Batman Begins as well...If The Wolverine goes by that formula I'll still love it because BB was f**kin amazing.
Whoa...looks like this Wolvie movie might be the one we fans have been waiting for!
Glad to hear that!
Well I do think there was too much of Viper, to be honest.
She was poisoning people all over the place and if began to feel like it was just done for the sake of it. A random guy came up to her on the street and said he thought she was hot and she grabbed him and poisoned him. That scene wasn't even needed. It was just done too much. The scene with Wolverine and the grizzly bear wasn't needed either. It didn't really contribute to the story.
New review posted on RT: http://www.theshiznit.co.uk/review/the-wolverine.php
3/5 listed as negative
I think the Mirror reviewer raised valid points even if he was harsh and obviously disappointed. The Telegraph review was mostly nonsense.
Just out of interest, does anyone know how a fresh or rotten rating is decided for a borderline review? I've seen 3/5 reviews get either fresh or rotten, although I would generally say a 3/5 is a positive review. Do they ask the reviewer themselves?
i thought all 3/5 reviews were rated as rotten?
It's the reviewer themselves that decide.
