The Wolverine Movie Review Summary

Actors: Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Wolverine

Famous character of 'X-Men' mythology, the Wolverine is imprisoned in a Army camp in Nagasaki, where he finds himself haunted by the past. Directed by James Mangold, the film 'The wolverine (2014)' is actually the second part of the last film 'X-Men Origins:Wolverine'. This film is far more better than the previous one. I found the Wolverine character since the first X-men movie, and he is one of my best favorite actor. During World War 2, Wolverine finds himself in a prison in Nagasaki. He is already haunted by his past, where he lost his love. He saved a soldier from the atomic disaster. many years later, while the soldier is dying, he sends his lovely daughter to retrieve Wolverine. But the soldier has something in his mind. He has got a plan to use Wolverine's immortality. As a bodyguard of that soldier and his daughter, Logan (Wolverines nick name) starts to learn the Samurai fighting. At the last of the film, he is using his Samurai skills to fight bad guys for his freedom.

Best part of story, including ending: I always like this type of science fiction+action story. Wolverine is a new kind of superhero.

Best scene in story: At the beginning of the film, when Logan saved a soldier from the atomic blast. A real brave act it was.

Opinion about the main character: The Wolverine is always helpful and brave. Everybody likes his attitude.

During World War II, Logan, a mutant with advanced healing powers and bone claws, is held prisoner in Nagasaki. When the atomic bomb explodes, an officer named Yashida is protected from the blast when Logan uses his own body as a human shield. Flash forward to present day: Logan is in Alaska, having removed himself from all contact with humans, as to not form any attachment to people who may then get hurt by him. A mutant who can see how people die, Yukio, arrives in Alaska to summon Logan to Japan; Yashida is dying of cancer and he wants to repay Logan for saving his life all those years ago. Yashida knows that Logan views his immortality as a curse, and he has found a way to transfer those powers to another. Thus, Logan can finally be given the gift of mortality, and Yashida will be able to be cured of his cancer. When Logan says no, he is attacked in his sleep by a mutant named Viper. Suddenly, Logan's healing powers are rapidly disappearing. Yashida dies, and when ninjas attempt to kidnap his granddaughter Mariko at his funeral, Logan goes on the run to save Mariko and keep her alive. While on the run, they begin to fall for each other, and Logan begins seeking out exactly how his powers have been halted, and what he can do to restore them and exact vengeance upon his assailants.
