Watch The Wolverine Online. Watch The Wolverine Movie Online. Comic book adaptations for the big screen have been a gamble in recent years. But at least these cinematic experiments gave directors a chance to figure out what works. This is probably why The Wolverine manages to come into its own and separate itself from the comic book.
Watch The Wolverine Movie Online. This time round director James Mangold brings us an adaptation of the 1982 comic that is a sequel to X-Men: The Last Stand. An adamantium-clawed mutant, Logan (Hugh Jackman), receives a request to travel to Japan to say goodbye to an old friend, an ailing Yashida (Hal Yamnouchi). Years earlier, Logan had saved the Japanese boy-soldier when the atomic bomb fell on Nagasaki. With a new lease on life, Yashida went on to become an industrial giant after the war. He is now an old man on his death bed who proposes that Logan ‘pass on’ his healing abilities. In return, Yashida will relieve him of his immortality.

But even before Yashida’s funeral is over, the Yakuza try to abduct Muriko.
Download The Wolverine Movie. This is where the movie transitions. In much of the second act Logan comes up against his trauma caused by what happened to Jean Grey in the third installment of X-Men (We can’t give it away). If the action sequences were not that distracting, this would have been a rich vein to mine. The one thing that gives Wolverine his strength and his identity is the bane of his life as well. Life is full of irony. The blessings of power, or say immortality, are double-edged; duality has always been the bread and butter of heroes and villains. But more importantly, we have to question, what do we make of the morality of characters such as Wolverine — who can cause so much pain and be so violent.
The Wolverine HD Watch Movie Online. As the movie sticks to a classic three-act structure it tends to drag in places. Periodic forced transition scenes are a weak point as is the script for some of the characters, especially the token love-interest Muriko. Her sole purpose seems to be acting as a catalyst to precipitate emotional flashes in Logan. Joining Muriko is Viper, a poison-secreting mutant, whose character goes as deep as her latex green suit. Unless we know more about her motives, she too emerges little more than a pretty prop.

But sadly, they don’t take advantage of the 3-D factor, especially the scene shot on top of a bullet train. They really could have worked the scene in which Wolverine lifts off and flies back the length of the train to sink his claws into a bad guy.
The Wolverine Free Movie Watch Online. Overall, this film is an improvement over the last Wolverine movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and director Mangold has done a fairly good job. While it could have benefited from better writing and more fulfilling characters, the action sequences are definitely worth a watch although they would have been just as good in 2-D.
While it never seems to be as high-profile as the “Iron Man” or “Spider-Man” franchises, the “X-Men” series is actually the longest-running Marvel Comics series on the big screen, and it’s the one that opened the gates to Marvel’s current dominance. For my money, “X-Men” remains the most interesting, with a fistful of well-etched characters, rather sympathetic villains and mutant powers that allow for a wild variety of special effects. (Personal fave: Toad.)
Watch The Wolverine Full Length Movie Online. While there’s already been one spin-off film for the most popular “X-Men” character — 2008′s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” — the new installment, titled simply “The Wolverine,” picks up where 2006′s “X-Men: The Last Stand” left off; it draws heavily on the 1982 comics by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, which saw Wolverine land in Japan to battle yakuza, fall for an ebony-tressed beauty and teach English. Oh wait, sorry — that was “Charisma Man.”
“The Wolverine” finds the ornery Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) simmering even more than usual. He’s haunted by the death of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) at his own hands, worn down by years of immortality and has retreated into a hermit’s life. He is tracked down, however, by Yukio (Rila Fukushima) — a ninja who apparently shops in Harajuku — who convinces him to visit Tokyo to say goodbye to his old friend Yashida, whose life Logan saved in the war.
Once in Japan, Logan learns that Yashida actually wants to “relieve” Logan of the burden of his immortality by technologically transferring it to himself. Logan declines, but soon finds himself in a web of intrigue involving the yakuza, Yashida’s power-hungry son (Hiroyuki Sanada) and his granddaughter Mariko (Tao Okamoto). Needless to say, our hero sides with the pretty girl, and after rescuing her from a suicidal attack by bare-chested yakuza with enough ink to give Toru Hashimoto a brain aneurysm, the two hit the road.
Watch The Wolverine Movie in HD Video.For a superhero movie to stand out these days, it’s got to have something beyond a stale three-act narrative and gobs of CGI. Director James Mangold, better known for character-driven dramas such as “Walk the Line” or “Girl, Interrupted,” manages to rise above the crowd. While it’s got about every Japan cliché you can think of — from ninja to love hotels to Tokyo Tower — the setting and swordplay do provide a fresh feel, especially an acrobatic duel set atop a speeding bullet train, which makes the similar rooftop chase in “Skyfall” seem tame by comparison. Fukushima, in particular, combines a slightly alien demeanor with bad-ass cool that looks set to inflame the hearts of a million fanboys.
Mangold has Wolverine go through a bit of an existential crisis in this one, and he and Jackman work hard to make this a character we care about. Fortunately, the duo don’t take themselves as seriously as Mssrs. Nolan and Bale, throwing plenty of self-deprecating humor into the mix too, before finally giving way to CGI overload in the final reel’s boss battle. The superhero genre may be on the brink of overkill, but “Wolverine” proves that in the right hands, it can still entertain.
