Review: 

Why was he in the fucking hole? The movie never fucking explained why he was in the fucking hole at Nagasaki. What the fucking fuck?

Sorry for all the fucks, but stuff like that really bothers me. Of course, I could think of nothing else during the whole film, waiting for it to come up again and it never did. They might be saving it for a future film, but the mid-credits sequence set the stage for Days of Future Passed. Maybe since there's time travel in that film, we'll see how he ended up in the fucking hole?

Yes, Hugh Jackman certainly was working out hard while making this film. He was almost TOO veiny. (Insert penis joke here.)

The Wolverine was kind of boring. The bullet train scene was pretty exciting, but the rest of it was same old, same old. Just like all action movies, at first the hero and the lady he is protecting fight, but by act 2, they're butt naked. Showdown in Little Tokyo did it better.

My son made me laugh so hard when his main question about Viper was how she gets that tight outfit on and off...not how she spits poison or why she shed her skin. He is SO my son. Also, Viper reminded me of the blond bitch in The Last Crusade.

Sorry Bub, but I didn't love The Wolverine. It makes a decent family movie night movie, IF it's free On Demand. At least the credits sequence made me excited about , which should be On Demand any day now.
