The Wolverine Blu-ray + DVD Review

The Wolverine Blu-ray + DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 06, 2012
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

The year’s most epic action packed blockbuster, THE WOLVERINE is now available on Blu-ray + DVD. Read Kidzworld's review of the movie based on the most iconic character of the X-men Universe!

Hugh Jackman returns as The Wolverine and faces his ultimate nemesis in an action-packed, life or-death battle that takes him to modern-day Japan he hasn’t seen since World War II – and into a shadowy realm of ninjas, mutants, and a brand new class of villains. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his limits, Wolverine confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality; an epic fight that will leave him forever changed.

The Bottom Line

Fans of the comics and films alike can all agree that The Wolverine is a huge improvement on X-Men: Origins: Wolverine (2009) - the first attempt at bringing Wolverine to the forefront of the story. The Wolverine really focuses on one of the greatest characters in the X-Men series, and Hugh Jackman is at his best in this one, bringing to life all the claws, sneers and secret sorrow of the comic book character in the midst of some pretty exciting action. Based on one of the most popular storylines about the iconic clawed anti-hero, The Wolverine sees Logan returning to Japan to meet up with a Japanese soldier whose life he saved during the bombing of Nagasaki. The incredible Japanese sets are even more impressive on blu-ray, and the action sequences might just blow you out of the water - it's hard to go wrong when you've got samurais and The Yakuza (that's like the Japanese mob, for those not in-the-know) fighting on screen!

The Wolverine Blu-ray and DVD has some great extras that any Wolverine fans will be excited to rip into, including an "Alternate Ending" - and if you're pumped for the next X-Men movie, then the "X-Men: Days of Future Past Set Tour" is bound to be a highlight. All in all, you can't go wrong taking this blu-ray and DVD set home.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
