Overview

A haunted Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) journeys to Japan to bid an old friend farewell, and gets drawn into a conflict involving ninja and yakuza in stand-alone spin-off set following the events of X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, and preceding the events of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The story begins in Nagasaki. As a B-29 bomber appears in the sky and air-raid sirens howl, panicked Japanese troops begin committing ritual seppuku. Terrified, yet unwilling to sacrifice his own life, young soldier Yashida takes cover in a heavily fortified prison pit containing the immortal mutant Wolverine, who shields him from a deadly blast. Decades later, Wolverine has sworn off violence after he was forced to kill his beloved Jean Grey (Famke Janssen). He's confronting a hunter who has been using illegal, poison-tipped arrows when the sword-wielding Yukio (Rila Fukushima) comes to his aid, and summons him to Japan at the behest of the dying Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi), now the head of Japan's largest and most powerful tech giant. Just hours before passing away, Yashida implores Wolverine to protect his granddaughter Mariko (Tao Okamato), whom he has personally chosen to take over the family business -- much to the chagrin of her plotting father Shingen (Hiroyuki Sanada). When the yakuza attempt a high-profile kidnapping of Mariko during Yashida's funeral, Wolverine comes to her rescue, and receives some much needed help from enigmatic ninja Harada (Will Yun Lee). Narrowly escaping with their lives, Wolverine and Mariko go into hiding with the yakuza and ruthless mutant Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova) hot on their trail. But the battle is far from over, and with Wolverine's healing powers mysteriously diminished, he may not be able to protect Mariko for long.

Reviews:
"[A]nchored by a strong performance by Jackman, who embodies Wolverine like no one else could." - 08/02/2013 USA Today


"Like never before, Hugh Jackman sinks his claws into the emotion and the action scenes of the tormented mutant, now doing battle with diminished powers." - 07/25/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A refreshing summer cocktail of action-movie staples, THE WOLVERINE combines the bracingly adult flavor of everyone’s favorite mutant antihero... with the fizzy effervescence of several mixers from the cabinet of Japanese genre cinema..." - 07/25/2013 Washington Post


"Hugh Jackman, in his sixth time up as Wolverine, still has the juice. This pissed-off man of Adamantium claws is stalking new ground, and his fight with yakuza on top of Tokyo's speeding bullet train is a wowser." - 08/01/2013 Rolling Stone


"Hugh Jackman returns as the adamantium-reinforced superhero in this entertaining and surprisingly existential digression from his usual X-Men exploits." - 07/23/2013 Variety


"[I]t's definitely a more entertaining and far deeper film than the last Wolverine outing..." - 08/01/2013 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he storytelling is more sharply focused here, ignited by flashes of stylised superheroism." - 07/18/2013 Total Film


"[T]his noir-ish, unusually intimate take still has the requisite sockadelic set pieces to guarantee an adamantium-plated hit..." - 07/21/2013 Hollywood Reporter
