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 Kidzworlds 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.

First, you figure out which is the liar without asking any questions. Say something like, "I'm assuming that you are a guard, but correct me if I am wrong." If they say they aren't a guard, they are a liar. If they say they are or don't say anything, they are the truthful guard. Then, you can proceed to ask them which door is the princess and which one is the dragon.  "I'm assuming you are a guard" this could still be counted as a question. If you simply say "You sir are certinally a guard" then he will simply answer of course I am if he is the truthful guard. If he is the lying guard he with deny it. Your not wrong but, we don't want to take risks with our lives now do we.
