Short Review: The Wolverine 2013
This movie may not impress many X-Men movie fans because there were just two notable mutants other than Wolverine-Yukio and Viper/Dr. Green. Here, Yukio’s mutant talent is rather covered by here extreme martial art performance. The Second reason for putting a low impression on viewers is the Japan connection of Wolverine. Those who only see the movies of X-Men series but not read the original comic series tend to believe that’s mutants must be billed from West
From My point of view, I have read and see some cartoon series of Wolverine story based in Japan, may be this is the only reason for me to expect to see how Wolverine’s Japan adventures would be pictured in Cinema. Those who never read X-Men comics rarely know that before Professor X recruited Logan as X-Man, Wolverine had a notable events and adventures in Japan, alone as a key character.

I am a fan of X-Men Characters; thus, I expect some new mutants who are not showed in past X-Men Series. More new mutants could exhilarate the story also bring some twisted moments for viewers. Hugh Jackman starred Logan’s Character brilliantly as he did in past movies.
Though this movie does not use “X-Men” in title, and said to be a separate movie out of X-Men Franchise, to me- this movie is filling the gap between “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
