The Wolverine (2013)

Rated: PG13 - Runtime: 129 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

The first half of this movie actually feels like a Bourne movie.  Which is kind of cool.  And it's mostly set in Japan.  Which is also kind of cool.  And Wolverine has a live-action Japanese anime-inspired sidechick who reminds me of Hitgirl.  Cool.

Yet The Wolverine series just isn't as cool as the other Marvel series.  It sort of has that "shot cheap in Canada" syndicated television series vibe.  More like "Highlander: The Series" than, say, "Twilight", but there you go.
