The Wolverine {DVD Review}

The Wolverine’s most interesting DVD/Blu-ray set will be it’s “Unleashed Extended Edition,” which will include 4 discs. There will be a behind-the-scenes feature, as well as an alternate ending for the film. This set will also include a tour of X-Men: Days of Future Past’s set, which we’ve heard great things about.

My Thoughts: Logan, is a haunted man in The Wolverine. This is the fifth time Hugh Jackman plays Logan and I'm happy to say he is just as fantastic as the Wolverine. He is haunted by Jean Grey, who you may recall died in the last X-Men movie and wants out of his immortal existence. This movie is set in Japan and has some flash back periods, but essentially takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. There is not any storyline as to what occurs to Wolverine in between this period, one can only hope for Hugh Jackman to take on the Logan role for a sixth time. His sidekick in The Wolverine is Yukio, {Rila Fukushima} and she is somewhat a mutant, I think. She is a spunky girl and a nice addition to the movie. There is another new character who slithers on screen, Dr Green / Viper. She is deliciously evil. There is a fabulous sword fight mid-movie that is amazing. Who knew a little spunky Yukio could kick some butt. As with any movie and the Wolverine, there are humorous one liners. He never disappoints with his wit, even though he was a bit melancholy in the movie. The Wolverine does find his path again and is ready for some major action. There is a bit of brief nudity and strong language, so parents be aware. You will fall in love with the Wolverine all over again in The Wolverine!

The movie is available on Blu-ray Unleashed Extended Edition, 2 disc Blu-ray, and Digital HD download.
