The Wolverine

With some basis on the mini-series comic of the same name, this movie hopes to add depth to the enigmatic mutant, immortal, warrior called the Wolverine, by sending him to Japan to confront both his past and decide his future. The problems are that for an action movie, with some nice twists, it is slow moving and filled with characters that we know little about and (for most of the time) have no idea what their motivations are--which does not make characters mysterious, it makes them vague! As I've said before, it is clear that a good superhero movie can be successful both critically and economically (lots of $$!), so make good superhero movies, and don't just rely on a shirtless Hugh and some smoking hot women to carry the day.
