Summary

“Heroic Hugh Jackman “breathes the fire into Wolverine” (Miami Herald) — with a vengeance! This pulse-pounding action thriller sinks razor-sharp adamantium claws into the mysterious origins of Logan/Wolverine: his epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed/Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), and the ominous Weapon X program that unleashes his primal fury. Along the way, Wolverine also encounters legendary new mutants, including Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Gambit (Taylor Kitsch). You’ll go “berserker” for this deeper, darker, more-spectacular-than-ever chapter of the X-Men saga!”

Review

This was an interesting movie. Very entertaining, but wow was there a lot of violence. Like I mean a lot. In the first 20-25 minutes of the movie, the body count was through the roof. There was no blood and you never really saw the bodies, but you knew that they were dead. But the mutants were shot constantly and beaten up and hurt, but since they were mutants, they could not be killed or injured that badly. They would heal right up.

The movie did have its funny moments. Hugh Jackman really took on the role of Wolverine and took it to its fullest potential. He also made his character have that sarcastic side to it which made the movie quite funny in a few parts.

I thought that graphics in the movie were done really well with all of the mutants and their powers. It was extremely interesting. Now this movie is not about the X-Men. It is about Wolverine and his story and how he became who he is. At the end you did meet Professor X but it ended so that it would and could lead into another movie.

There was nothing sexual in it but you did see Logan’s backside when he was running out of a facility but it was in non-sexual context and it was literally a flash and then you saw him jump. But nothing was seen at all.

This was definitely a guy movie with all of the violence and testosterone laden action but it is still an entertaining watch. That does not explain why I watched it but I really did not know it was going to be as violent as it was. If I did I probably would not have watched it. 🙂

I would definitely recommend this movie to be seen but I would recommend the person to be over the age of at least 14 or 15 years of age due to some of the things which went on.

But otherwise, enjoy!
