Many people is talking great things about it esp the acting skills of Hugh Jackman, on the other hand the movie is also getting negative criticism. Here we collected some The Wolverine movie review from different movie analyst. If you are planning to watch this might help you.

Whatever else you may say about The Wolverine, the latest Marvel comic-book adventure to reach the big screen, say this: It takes guts– and, apparently, both a big movie star and a popular hero — to get Hollywood to spend a bundle on a tentpole movie the bulk of whose characters are Japanese.

‘The Wolverine’ has lots to like and some to regret – Mark Hughes
I enjoyed the movie and there’s much to praise. Hugh Jackman clearly loves this character and loves playing him, and he never gives less than 100% to the performance. In The Wolverine, Jackman turns in his best superhero outing since X2: X-Men United. He’s helped by a story that puts most of the emphasis on the character and on his struggle with his violent nature as he searches for purpose in life — or in death. He finds himself thrown into a foreign environment that turns out to reflect much more of his own nature than he expected, and we get a lively examination of the concept of Wolverine as a lone samurai who finds himself both trapped by and redeemed by his sense of duty and honor.

Sadly, Loving Wolverine is not the same as loving The Wolverine – Angela Watercutter
Wolverine is an amazing character. Dark, conflicted, badass, noble, in possession of great hair – he’s a fantastic hero. And Hugh Jackman plays him with the kind of gusto that should make Robert Downey Jr. jealous. Yet, there’s something about Wolverine solo flicks that just don’t hit – and it might have something to do with the lack of other X-Men. Click here for full review.

Jackman, for all his growling, flexing and macho wisecracking, keeps our attention focused on Logan’s feelings. So does Mangold, even as he obeys the imperatives of the action-franchise machine. A modest superhero picture may sound like a contradiction in terms, but really it is a welcome respite. A short one, to be sure. An end-credits teaser – stay in your seat! – promises a planet-threatening spectacle to come, probably next summer. No wonder the Wolverine looks tired. Read full review on

Trust me, it’s all a lot less complicated than it sounds. – Michael O’Sullivan
A refreshing summer cocktail of action-movie staples, “The Wolverine” combines the bracingly adult flavor of everyone’s favorite mutant antihero — tortured, boozy X-Man Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine — with the fizzy effervescence of several mixers from the cabinet of Japanese genre cinema: noirish yakuza crime drama, samurai derring-do and ninja acrobatics. It goes down super smooth but packs a punch, erasing not only the memory of Marvel’s last foray into the Wolverine mythos, the 2009 stinker “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” but also washing away the more recent unpleasant aftertaste of this summer’s other Asian-set action thriller, “Pacific Rim.” Find full review on Washington Post
