4-Color to 35-Millimeter: The Wolverine

superhero_header

Hugh Jackman’s second solo outing as Wolverine is better than his first one, but that’s damning with the faintest of praise. Still, this is a fun, if incoherent, adaptation of one of the seminal Wolverine comics stories. The great superhero movie rewatch sinks its claws into The Wolverine.

An excerpt:

As long as you don’t think about it, and just enjoy the location shooting in Japan and the nifty action scenes with ninjas and stuff, and don’t mind a climax that’s mostly just the hero fighting a CGI creature (a mode we’ll be coming back to, um, a lot as we move forward in this here rewatch), this is an enjoyable film. Just don’t think about it too much.
