I think this makes me admire Tony Leung even more, he receives scripts from Hollywood all the time and he never agrees because they're all garbage roles. And Tony Leung is one of the best actors in the world, just imagine how bad it is for Asian American actors to have decent roles in Hollywood.
Maybe he wanted the exposure? Though I agree he needs to get a new agent who doesn't accept every single Hollywood role that comes across the desk. That said, I really liked his performance in The Last Samurai which is a prime example of oriental actors employed right (also the best Tom Cruise film IMO).

Those were made of adamantium also, if I'm not mistaken.

The Silver Samurai's armor and sword are also made of adamantium.

Yes, but it's not like only his claws were adamantium. He still had it coating every other bone in his body.

^ Yeah, I know... figured I'd help point out that he's stuck with Bone Claws now and help that discussion...


Though, with the few images we have of Days of Future Past, it looks like he get's them back somehow... atleast the "future" him.

Well, if he just transfers his mind rather than body, then he'd be in his past self, which still had adamantium.

Magneto could always graft more Adamantium onto Wolverine's claws.

Now that would be a cool thing to see. Which reminds me, since the abomination that was The Last Stand, we don't know by how much Magneto has regained his powers, if at all. Something tells me the new film will be focusing primarily on the "new" cast and chances are we'll only have a handful of scenes with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen in them...

We also know Storm's back, so there's sure to be some good amount of "current" scenes. And we know Magneto got his powers back to some extent, since he stopped Wolverine cold.

Just came back after watching this, it was an average movie. Still, felt half-baked from start to finish; more like a big side-story in Wolverine's life, nothing too great (although he did lose them metal claws). The theme was great, Wolverine's dilemma between a cursed life and the many chances presented for a promising death.

Got a question for you though, where was his bodyguard when he met Magneto? Oh, and Viper sucked...like, a lot.

That final scene at the end there came off to me as if it could've taken place after a time skip of an unspecified length. In any case, she could be watching him from a distance or they could've gone there separate ways--Not that her presence would've mattered with how someone either made time freeze or controlled everyone to stop moving.

I couldn't really tell who was responsible for that whether it be Charles or some other mutant present that wasn't necessarily shown.

I took that as Charles freezing Logan's perception of his environment, in order to have him focus on these two, but it could have been anything. As for the timeskip, it might as well be, since the Wolverine doesn't show his age...

That's an interesting interpretation...and far more plausible than what I suggested. I think I'll go with that.

Or, perhaps, 2 years later, as it said on the screen when the scene first began.

This movie was great! Although missing some kind of epic punch expected in most superhero films The Wolverine more than made up for it with the little things.
Having such a solo character specific movie required a great actor and Hugh Jackman as always does his character justice, and then some. From the chilling A Bomb opening scene to train fight (which had me loling) to Wolverines final "sayonara" this film had many fantastic components. Although not particularly pieced together in the most plausible fashion (with alot of the events in the story seeming there for 'plots sake') all in all the film built on the hope for the X-Men franchise that first class gave

This movie had good things and bad things. I like wolverine I think his stories are always so romantic/dramatic with action and blood!! and all those good things. There are some you know, wait what moments but who cares it was entertaining . Hugh Jackman is the man.

Hmm, I just finished watching this, and I hope Logan's self-appointed bodyguard will show up again in a future X-Men/Wolverine movie. I like her attitude.

Yes, one in particular is how Logan can still use his claws without injuring himself. There is also the scene with Magneto, but I guess he still has some adamantium in his body. Still, like you said, quite entertaining overall.

Just to answer some questions,
Professor X can control a group of people to make them stop.
Wolverine's claws do in fact injure him when he pops them but it is a minor injury due to his healing factor and heals almost instantly.

Sure, but his healing power was neutralized temporarily.
