The Wolverine

It wasn't as bad as I thought it is. Initially thought it was gonna be really long and draggy. Well ok, it was kinda long since it's a 2 hour-long movie.

Check out the trailer in case you haven't watch it yet:

Directed by James Mangold (who also directed Knight and Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz) , The Wolverine is an action movie about wolverine from Xmen (duh! *rolls eyes*), where he got "invited" by someone he saved last time back in Japan to see him before he pass away, but things wasn't as simple as he thought. A trip to Japan which almost cost him his life.

Starring Hugh Jackman as Logan aka the wolverine, Rila Fukushima as Yukio (the red hair chick with bangs), Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Will Yun Lee as Harada. 

The whole film takes place at different places around Japan, except at the beginning of it, where Yukio found Logan and managed to convince him to follow her back to Japan.

Like most action movies, expect it to be full of actions, explosions, shootings. The parts I like are the fights on top of the bullet train and the final fight towards the end. I jumped a bit during the last part because it wasn’t something I’m expecting.

Another part which I've noticed, is when Logan and Yukio was on the plane, on the way to Japan, they are sitting at the opposite direction of each other, showing that they are not in the same "group". What I'm trying to say is, they have different objective at that time. At the end of the film, they are sitting facing the same direction together, showing that they are now on par with each other and they both have the same objective now.

There’s one part which I don’t really like though, which is the part where Yashida (the old man who wanted to see Logan before he dies) who was lying on this bed, and it will automatically go up and down tracing the body movement of Yashida to help him get up. It looked really really fake, and yes of course I know it’s CGI, but it’s kinda too obvious.

Overall, it was a not bad film for me. I’ll give it a 6.5/10.
