Reel Snippets – The Wolverine

The first time I saw The Wolverine, I was so exhausted that I kept dozing off. After seeing it again, I can definitively say that it is a conflicting movie. On the downside, it drags very heavily in the second act and some of the action scenes feel incredibly long. On the upside, the action scene on the bullet train is absolutely amazing and it cleanses the pallet of the previous, rather awful Wolverine movie. It also avoids one of the major problems of the first movie where they made an action movie around an indestructible protagonist and instead made it a drama with action scenes. After all, there are few characters who have as much easily mineable angst as Wolverine. The movie is far from perfect, as there are a few characters that feel underutilized or underdeveloped, but on the whole, it’s worth a watch. There’s also a post-credits scene that will make fans of the franchise wet their pants, so there’s that too.
