‘The Wolverine’ Suffers From A Distinct Lack Of Ninja Killing [Review]

Wolverine01

You know, I really expected Wolverine to kill more ninjas.

That's not being unrealistic, is it? I mean, when you hear that there's going to be a Wolverine movie based, however loosely, on the 1982 Wolverine miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, you go into the theater expecting a few things to happen. I wasn't really looking for a specific number or anything, but if you'd asked me going in, I would've told you that my most important expectation for this movie was that Wolverine was going to kill a number of ninjas that was greater than zero. when the ninjas actually do show up about 20 minutes before the end, I figured it was finally time to pay off, but nope. Never happened. In that respect, I'm sorry to tell you that The Wolverine did not meet my expectations.

Chris Sims: Welcome back to our entirely unnecessary in-depth review of X-Men Origins: Wolverine! When we last left off, Wolverine was walking away from an explosion in slow motion, which is a pretty nice summary of the entire film.

Chris Sims: Welcome back to our in-depth review of X-Men 3: The Last Stand, everyone! When we last left off on the unquestionable turkey of the franchise, Jean Grey had gone evil, as evidenced by the fact that she was inexplicably dressed for clubbing in the mid-90s. Oh, and also, she killed Professor X.

Matt Wilson: You know, Chris, you say this is

Chris Sims: Hello everyone and welcome back to ComicsAlliance's in-depth review of the X-Men film franchise!
