Movie Review: The Wolverine (2013)

Hey guys,

Been a while since I did a movie review, so here's one for ya!

Thanks to Cathay Cineplex Damansara, I was given the opportunity to catch The Wolverine, the highly anticipated action thriller of the most decorated X-Men genre.

Synopsis: In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

Verdict: 6.5/10. I think this movie would be great for those who just wants action and can't be too bothered by the storyline. Truth be told, I enjoyed this quite a fair bit cos I liked the action and fight sequences. However, le bb thought there were a lot of plotholes here and there, and that it doesn't add up to the original comic.

A lot of people would come to watch the ninja assassin, Rila Fukushima in her role as Yukio. For me, I think she still needs a bit more acting jobs to make her acting more natural. While she has some good scenes,  there were some that she was quite stiff and needed more work.

Oh and btw, the storyline is predictable too. Just saying :)

Til  the next review, stay beautiful! (psst next one up is Smurfs 2!!)
