All You Need to Know

I.M.C.F Review
Firstly, this film doesn't give you any feel, that it is an X-Men part..! It seems devoid of all other parts. You will feel, you are watching some Hollywood made, Japanese film with Wolverine starring it!
I dont know why, but the makers have come up with a small story! Not fascinating ! But somehow, Director could manage to get the best of it, with a TWIST at the end!
Cast performances? Hugh Jackman was the only one seen on screen, for most of the time. Of course, he did very well. Tao Okamoto was cute.
Screenplay, Cinematography and Music were fine. They can get you run, along with the movie. 3D effects were not too much in this film! Only a few good scenes can be noted for effects! The whole film was shot in Japan, and the crew were successful in delivering, the Taste of the Land of Rising Sun!

Overall : Action sequences were good. Movie starts off well, gets a bit slow, and again catches pace. Wolverine loses his Blades, but gains control over Jean Grey and his Mutant power! Starts off to US, to meet Magneto and Charles Xavier, in the Post credit scene! ‪#‎TheyAreBack‬ for X-Men: Days of Future Past!

Not a classic, but The Wolverine proves solid.
It's basically a high-budget take on an old-school samurai flick, with Wolverine as the ronin. And it's as awesome as it sounds.
Ultimately, this is Jackman's film, and he plays the reluctant but fearsome hero perfectly.
