|Kuzuri - lit. Wolverine. Not monster.|
Good thing I saw this movie as it appears to be the lead up to Days of Future Past.
|4 out of 5 stars|
|Really? That lame non-Japanese 'Wolverine' banner? Really?|
|I wonder if that is actually comfortable.|
|So... that is what I assume is a heart shaped face. Right?|
|I do believe those are "Apple Battle" pachinko machines.|
Despite that 'odd' bit... the movie has a lot of Japanese in it, since for the most part it takes place entirely in Japan. I love practicing my Japanese by watching films and anime and the likes. Some subtitles, a lot not. It's fun!
|Okamoto Tao. Kawaii!|
|I just wanted to include a second picture of her.|
|Too many ninjas. Alone a ninja is invincible, with many...|
So the Wolvering goes to Japan.
This is a going to be a bit more violent than Mr. Smith going to Washington.
I'm going to stop the synopsis there. That's the real prologue of the movie.
Again, as when I reviewed Riddick, I only saw the extended cut. I think of these as the Definitive Cuts. I consider the directors cut, the extended cuts, the four hour versions of LotR, etc., to be the real films.Seriously, which would you rather watch Blade Runner or Blade Runner: Director's Cut? Only one of these is the true definitive and quality cut of the film, and that is the Director's Cut.

I'm satisfied with my rating, and the movie itself. Considering it was the second best grossing of the entire X-men franchise, it must have done something right. My nerd sense says this movie was definitely worth watching... in fact it has kind of made me want to go back and watch all the other X-men movies, well save for X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
I have no idea if this was worth money in theater or not... it was worth waiting for the BD to drop to a reasonable price. I liked it. And really, what else is there to say? I enjoyed it, if you enjoy the types of movies I watch, you probably will too.
