And in so many different ways too, no wonder the biggest star of the X-Men cinematic world has been Wolverine, and he is still here and he can still put on a great show. Ironically, with the exception of Origins, every X-Men has had a focus on someone else more than him. The first one was more about Rogue, the second Xavier, and the third Jean Grey. Granted he is a very close second in each. Well heck, even Origins is focused heavily on Victor. This one is truly and almost completely about him. If you are a fan of X-Men, you know you are going to see it. If you are a newcomer to the series, or you haven’t seen at least X1 through X3 you might be a little confused. But first, let me mention that the biggest question I had going in was where does this film fit in regards to the other films. I purposely didn’t want to find out until I saw it so as to be surprised and I pleasantly was. This story takes place as a sequel to X3 which I thought was fantastic. I was looking forward to the saga continuing after having seen the timeline jump around in Origins and First Class. So being a sequel, I do recommend that having seen X1 through 3 will make this one more enjoyable. In this installment we get a pretty good story, very good action of course, and a little bit of good drama. It is fun and sexy, with touches of humor at just the right moments. As you well may have noticed in the previews and commercials, the story is wrapped around Japan and Japanese characters. I mention this because the accent that some members of the cast have were a tad difficult to understand at times so you gotta stay on your toes with open ears. The cinematography in Japan, though, was spectacular. It spanned from big city Tokyo to the breathtaking countryside. Even the scenes before getting to Japan were nice too. But great cinematography does not automatically generate great visual effects. There was some CGI that looked cheap which was a little shocking and a bit of a turn off. Luckily it was only for certain situations, so for the most part the effects were spot on. READ FULL REVIEW >>
