Shawn Vs The Wolverine

I watched The Wolverine last week. It has taken me this long to decide what I wanted to say about it. Even then, I had to seek my wife's thoughts to help me formulate mine.

I'll start by saying that this was an entirely different Wolverine that we are used to seeing in the X-Men movies and even  X-Men Origins: Wolverine . He was a lot more dark and closer related to the Wolverine of the comic books. (finally)

My wife adds that his character has had some comedic relief in all the X-Men movies, albeit a tad vulgar. But none here. That was something I definitely overlooked. Also, he was ugly, for half the movie. Haha.

The story wasn't really great and even seemed somewhat disjointed. Of course Hugh Jackman is fantastic in the part.  He was just given a shoddy story, in my opinion, that really didn't make a lot of sense.

The X-Men franchise was pretty solid and has had multiple watches in my household. I don't think that this one measures up at all. I'm not super interested in watching it again, even though there were some really really awesome moments that screamed the violent Wolverine from the comics. They just didn't show it all. Silly pussy bastards.

I'ma have to slap a Bad on this one.
