The Wolverine - DVD Review

Starring Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Will Yun Lee, Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Brian Tee and Famke Janssen.
Directed by James Mangold.


It's the sequel no one really wanted, but I'm glad it happened anyway. The "Origins" movie wasn't great, but here we get a stripped-down side adventure for everyone's favorite X-Man. Wolverine goes to Japan to visit an old friend, a friend who can give him the gift of mortality. But from there, he gets betrayed, and we get to see Wolverine take on some ninjas. What has stuck with me is the fight sequence on the bullet train, one of the best action scenes of the year.
