A very intensive Wolverine sequence that results in near disaster!

Very good - even had elements of James Bond with the cute girls and action in a foreign country (Japan). The young Japanese girl with the red hair is a standout. I had seen Lucan before this one which thought it was MacBeth and wasn't very good so this was a treat. Most interesting scene involved an operation.

Inappropriate content. Not a bad plot. Not for kids.

Before this I loved Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), but this movie was just so without a plot - didn't even watch the whole move - cannot even figure out purpose of movie...

Lots of good fun, though possibly the silliest X-Men film I've seen.

Couldn't get into movie.
Isn't comic book character supposed to be short & squat? Hollywood executives screwed up in casting.

I likes the movie more than I expected. Watch it if you are a fan of high octane action and cool fight scenes.

Hugh Jackman returns once again as the Wolverine. The movie begins with Logan saving a Japanese soldier from a bomb in Nagasaki in World War Two. Now, Logan is distressed after killing Jean Grey. A Japanese girl visits him to tell him that her father, the one he saved in World War Two, is on his deathbed and would like to see Logan. Logan, who is immortal, is offered the ability to be mortal by Yashida (the name of the man he saved). Logan refuses, and later on things take a turn for the worse. Logan finds himself shot and unable to heal. Confused, he must find out why his regenerative powers are not working. I enjoyed this movie although as a marvel movie with Wolverine, perhaps the fights could’ve been a bit better.

Honestly, they could've done better. It's like they were grasping at straws. It didn't turn out like all the others. it's like they didn't take the time it needed to get it done right.

Awful movie! Everything about this movie is boring! The story, the characters, the villain, the action sequences, everything is boring!!! Don’t bother…

Hero or zero? Depends on what you like in these movies. If chewing gum for the testosterone beast within, this is as good as any.
If, as i, you watch them at least as much for inadvertent comedy value, then the "silly lightweight dramatics of Thor or Iron Man" are way better.
This movie is in something like 'the uncanny valley"- not real enough to take seriously, but too self-important to provide any laughs. And no, it doesn't make up for its deficits with any particular style. Just a me-too cg action thriller [watch for Wolverine IV coming soon!].
The only plus would be for the ladies- the wolverine and his luscious washboard abs.

Better than most in its genre.
Certainly better than other Marvel films like the silly, lightweight dramatics of Thor or Iron Man.

Not the greatest in the franchise. Plot is laboured and contrived.

I like Wolverine and thought the movie was exciting and enjoyable. great pace and so many of the shots were visually artistic, and the train business, wow, superhero movies just keep getting better. It's only in retrospect I realize I still have no idea what the plot was, and superhero movies are still cliched and stupid. Many female characters, big part of their job is looking good in tight costumes, but you could say the same about Wolverine there, so points for trying.

In my opinion, this 6th (and hopefully last) installment in the X-Men series certainly tended to disappoint more than it satisfied.

(Spoilers Ahead!)

Let-down #1 - Finding out that Wolverine's apparently indestructible, adamantium knuckle-knives were, in fact, hollow. Sorry, but you don't create an X-Man like Wolverine and cut corners with his design by making his primary weapon cheap, hollow, and, yes, breakable.

Let-down #2 - You don't have an X-Man of Wolverine's respected status (who apparently fights for the sake of honour) turn around and bed the very woman whose life he's supposedly protecting.

Let-down #3 - I'd definitely say it's time to dispense with Wolverine's irksome visions and senseless guilt over Jean Grey's death. This nonsense only served to confuse and bog the story down and make Wolverine appear to be seriously unhinged.

Let-down # 4 - From my perspective, I think that Hugh Jackman (now 45) is clearly too old for his part. I notice that in close-ups he's rarely ever shot in natural light. The deep furrows in his brow give me an indication that there's plenty of stress in his life.

Yes. I could certainly continue slamming this $120 million production, non-stop. But I think my point has been made crystal-clear.

Now 13 years down the road, the Wolverine character has become as tiresome and stale as the likes of Freddy Krueger, for crying out loud!

I enjoyed it more than some of the other X-men movies.
