More Info:
  • 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.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    The movie's a solid fish-out-of-water thriller that just happens to be populated by a few folks with adamantium skeletons or poison saliva on their résumés.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    If comic book movies are the last place you look for a soulful, serious performance, The Wolverine should be your first.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Taken on its own terms The Wolverine is the cleanest, least pretentious and most satisfying superhero movie of the summer. Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The Wolverine boasts one of the best pulp-inspired scripts yet. It’s still full of corny dialogue...but there’s a genuine elegance to the way it establishes Logan’s tortured condition and slowly brings the character around to recovering his heroic potential, methodically setting up and paying off ideas as it unfolds.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The post-conversion 3D is more distracting than anything else, but the rest of this surprisingly fun entertainment is as sharp as the hero’s claws.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    It has such a strong aesthetic about it, it's almost as if The Wolverine functions as its own stand-alone film, rather than as a piece of the "X-Men" mythology. Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Mangold front-loads the action, but near the end there’s a first-rate fight atop a bullet train between Wolverine/Logan and some especially pesky ninjas. It puts the train fights in the recent “The Lone Ranger” to shame.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    Whether or not this flies in the unforgiving fan world remains to be seen. But for those less intemperately invested, The Wolverine will come as a welcome and bracing surprise: An almost human-scaled superhero movie about a guy who goes to die in Japan and ends up beating his way back to life.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The Wolverine is one of the better comic-book movies of 2013, thanks in large part to an electric performance by Hugh Jackman.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The Wolverine shows that, while originality would be nice, a little novelty and enthusiasm in the presentation of the familiar can be quite enough.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Apart from Khodchenkova, who displays the acting acumen of a runway model and gives new meaning to the term Russian mole (she's the villainous vixen of the tale, suited up in high heels and slinky, scaly couture), the cast of The Wolverine is uniformly good.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Finally - a superhero movie that doesn't feel like every other superhero movie.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's simply a more focused scenario than usual, full of violence done up with a little more coherence and visceral impact than usual.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Jackman spends enough time compellingly playing stranger in a strange land that you’ll put up with a few unwanted doses of the old familiar.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Now here’s a comic-book movie. In a summer that’s delivered one overstuffed Phase Two sequel and a bloated reboot designed to establish a whole new universe of interconnected franchises, The Wolverine has a self-contained efficiency that’s hard to resist.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    A modest superhero picture may sound like a contradiction in terms, but really it is a welcome respite.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Let all Marvel franchises have as long a life as Logan. But could Singer let Jackman sing a few numbers as the knife-fingered mutant? They could call it Les Scissorables.

    Time Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    You have to hand it to Marvel for managing to leave audiences breathless in anticipation of a sequel after making them sit through two-plus hours of merely satisfactory storytelling.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    An intermittently exciting action film anchored by a strong performance by Jackman, who embodies Wolverine like no one else could.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    I liked that The Wolverine (which saves a nifty twist for a surprise scene in the middle of the end credits) turns down the volume on the usual din of colliding mutant superpowers.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    This pissed-off man of Adamantium claws is stalking new ground (Japan), and his fight with yakuza on top of Tokyo's speeding bullet train is a wowser.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    This may be the year's best superhero movie because, for a sufficient amount of time, it doesn't feel like a superhero movie at all.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    This Wolverine gets our hopes up, and falls short.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    It exists in fits and starts: a Blade Runner–esque moment of rainy contemplation on a hotel balcony; some weird sexual tension with a lizard girl (statuesque Svetlana Khodchenkova) who steals away Wolverine’s healing powers.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    The Wolverine is an erratic affair, more lumbering than compelling, an ambitious film with its share of effective moments that stubbornly refuses to catch fire.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The lack of plot coherence is a lingering irritant in a film that otherwise seems to be trying to improve on its cinematic-series forebears.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The filmmakers work at creating a new take on an old protagonist and then don’t really have much new to do with him once they’ve achieved that. It’s a good effort. Just not an entirely successful one.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    Until a third act that collapses in a harebrained heap, the director largely succeeds in keeping the more cartoonish aspects at bay, roughing up the surface with organically staged fight scenes and, crucially, raising the stakes by stripping his hitherto indestructible hero of his self-healing powers.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    An improvement on the last outing for Jackman’s not-so-merry mutant. If only it trusted enough in its unique setting to forgo a descent into aggressively awful formula.

    Empire Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    It’s a step up from the garbled silliness of Wolverine’s first solo outing. Unlike Origins, the storytelling is more sharply focused here, ignited by flashes of stylised superheroism.

    Total Film Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Slapped with the generic title The Wolverine, the fifth feature-length appearance of Hugh Jackman’s X-Man John Logan is basically "The Bad News Wolverine Goes to Japan" and is not especially world-shaking.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ian Buckwalter

    I'd like to credit Mangold, along with writers Christopher McQuarrie, Mark Bomback and Scott Frank for their good intentions; the smaller scope and lighter tone of their film is a tonic after bloated doom and gloom of "Man of Steel."

    NPR Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    The mediocre mushy stuff isn’t alleviated by enough action.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Wolverine—despite being an improvement on Gavin Hood’s muddled 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine—isn’t worthy of Jackman’s gifts. It’s a reasonably engaging summer diversion, a semi-rousing adventure that doesn’t make you feel robbed of two hours of your life.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    This is Jackman’s show entirely, and he’s as forceful and charismatic as ever as the walking, talking hurt that is Wolverine. If only he had something more interesting to do here.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    It’s rare that a movie stops making sense before anyone speaks a line of intelligible dialogue, but The Wolverine is a rare movie.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    The Wolverine wants to have it both ways: a dark character story and an action-packed superhero film. But it never reconciles the two notes, and thus becomes more and more atonal as it wobbles towards its symphonically jarring ending.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Good thing the Aussie star has the role down to a science, since the rest of The Wolverine is a howler.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    This turgid return papers over the previous film’s narrative, but creates little in the way of a fresh character arc.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    The flat hammerblows of The Wolverine bear little relation to the zing and pop of Matthew Vaughn's colourful treatment. Inconsistency is inevitable in a world that's constantly being dug up and done over, but it leaves us no time to fall in love with anything being flung at us.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    The previous X-Men film, First Class, was secure enough in its own skin to embrace its comic side. Mangold’s picture affects a pubescent snarl instead: that’s the difference between comic and daft.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Laremy Legel

    The Wolverine reveals itself to be a film in desperate need of a point, in dire need of consequences and in a wandering search of any semblance of emotional weight. Full Review
