I liked it... but I might be biased from seeing James Mangold and Hugh Jackman on stage at Comic Con. The CGI at the final act wasn't as fake as all the reviews made it seem. The mid-credits scene was awesome! I bet the actress who plays Mariko was hired only because she was tall. I bet Famke Janssen was hired just so she can wear lingerie throughout the film. The movie was really pushing the PG-13 rating and probably not a good idea to bring your kids to.

I thought it was a really great, essentially stand-alone Wolvie adventure.

I hadn't read anything negative about the CGI but it was pretty flawless. Nothing will compare to the depths of Logan's Roger Rabbit, ink-and-paint style claws in that one scene in Origins.

Some really amazing action sequences too...the bullet train battle was awesome, and (are we going to spoil what happens in the climax?) the final fight scene was really jarring.

My friend who saw it with me realized about an hour after it that there was a pretty big plothole/inconsistancy: didn't Wolvie forget everything that happened to him, pre-Weapon X? That was a big plot point in the other movies...yet he remembered quite clearly what happened in WWII in Japan.

This review will shock you. As much as the amount of time I spend talking about all the Comic Con news.

Box Office Report: 'Wolverine' Opens to Strong $141.1 Mil Globally; Soft in North America (thr.com)

Ironically, X-Men Origins: Wolverine opened higher at $85.1 million even though the workprint leaked before release and the movie was pretty crappy.

I think that

A) People may be getting Wolverine fatigue, and
B) The name is horrible. It needed a sub-title, I wager a lot of people don't even know this is a different movie.

So, you think that people are confused and think this is a four or five year old movie being re-released?!? Don't get me wrong, I wish they'd come up with a better title, but, if that's actually happening, those people are morons.

This was way better than Origins (although I didn't hate that as much as many seemed to, other than the blasphemous crap version of Deadpool). As mentioned, the train scene was great fun, and, in general, it did a good job of mingling fun, over-the-top action with a bit of a character. Yukio was really fun to have around. Didn't necessarily love the final battle (or the results), but the set-up in the credits has me stoked for Days of Future Past.
