The Wolverine

DVD Talk
17 December 2013
  • Conclusion: James Mangold has delivered a surprise with The Wolverine , a straight-played, distinctive, and meditative franchise spin-off that manages to flesh out the eponymous title character during his journey to Japan. While it's sporadically guilty of a few of genre issues (especially in the loopy final act) and potentially takes itself a bit too seriously for some tastes, it's also surprisingly effective when acting as a personal drama about a man laden with sorrow and...

  • Excerpt: A long time ago, Logan saved the life of a Japanese soldier named Yashida (Haruhiko Yamanouchi, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou ). Now Yashida is an sickly old man who is determined to find a way to keep living. He tracks down Logan, flies him to Japan and tells him that he has found a way to remove that pesky immortality.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: Once again, the 'X-Men' franchise is alive and well. The horrible third 'X-Men' movie and the first 'Wolverine' movie derailed my faith in the franchise that really brought Marvel movies to the forefront, but 'X-Men: First Class' re-established that faith, and now 'The Wolverine' is continuing to show that they're headed in the right direction again. James Mangold removed the comic aspect and got the clawed character's adamantium heart beating again.

The Wolverine (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: So there you have it. The Wolverine 2-disc Blu-ray release has been officially unleashed and dissected here on Why So Blu.  I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re pretty much all fans of this film here on the site.  With epic action sequences, a pretty solid story (back and present) and a bang up audio and video presentation, what’s not to love about this slashing superhero release?

The Wolverine Blu-ray Review

29 November 2013
  • Summary: What is it with superheroes these days, anyway? One might think they wouldn't have a whole bunch to complain about, what with their superpowers and everything, and yet more and more films about our favorite good guys tend to wallow in supposedly intense psychological introspection, where moodiness has replaced any simple formulation of a valiant soul fighting for truth, justice and the American Way (or something like that).

  • Excerpt: When we first catch up with the titular X-Man (Hugh Jackman) in James Mangold's The Wolverine , all shreds of Logan, his civilian persona, have apparently ceased to be. With a matted beard that's grown as wild as his shaggy, shoulder-length hair, Wolverine is in full feral mode, living outdoors in some wintery American wilderness, and sharing the woods with beasts like a massive CG grizzly bear, who pees submissively when his two-legged neighbor saunters by.

  • Excerpt: "The Wolverine" puts everyone's favorite mutant back on track thanks to a more character-driven plot and reality-based approach. It's a little light on action, but otherwise it's the movie Wolverine fans have been waiting for.

  • Excerpt: What comes next? It's the question every storyteller dreads, faced with the blank page or canvas, trying to figure out what should happen to their characters next. How to develop them, what to have happen to them, and why? If you think about it, it's the question we're all trying to answer for ourselves. It's certainly the question Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), and the filmmakers trying to figure out what to do with him, are wrestling with.
