Wolverine Scratches to the No.1 Spot

By Stephfon Guidry

the-wolverine-movie-picture-30While Man of Steel leaped box office numbers in a single bound with $125million Marvel comics sequel Wolverine scratched $55million. The movie featured a PTSD ridden reclusive X-man Wolverine, Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) trampling through Canada pining over his murdered love Jean Grey (played by Famke Janssen). The whole movie Wolverine is slicing and dicing as a ronnin–a warrior with no master– but does this make up for the slow storyline and sparse character development? Not really 1 ½ out of 3 claws. The eyegasms for me in the movie came from seeing Jackman’s abs cut from the “adamantium” in his bones and the fits and fashions of Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova). Viper is a venomous scientist; with literally the kiss of death and nothing butt skin tight designer duds. Her outfit for the funeral was everything!  Now back to the movie Shkknt! GRUNTS. Wolverine makes love to a wronged Japanese heiress,  Mariko (Tao Okamoto) who was hunted most of the film by countless Yakuza thugs and a  band of ninja led by her ex-boo, Harada aka Will Yun Lee . The UNexpected shocker is the faked death and reappearance of Yashida himself, Hal Yamanouchi Silver Samurai. Uncanny as it may seem from an X-men fan like me the movie was ok but I’m titillated by the after the credits clip. Marvel Comics could not end the movie without giving the fans a spoiler to go home talking about X-Men Days of Future Past. After the credits roll Wolverine is in an airport only to be stopped by Magneto (Ian McKellan) and a resurrected Professor X (Patrick Stewart).
