james mangold directed this movie. he's a phenomenal director and brings a very r-rated action comic book feeling to this movie. you have a very vulnerable wolverine here and dealing with a relatable character where audiences can actually relate to the guy and my favorite action scene of the year is a bullet train scene where he's on the train leaping over the railing. i was totally geeking out watching the film but the problem is the movie peaks midway through and flattens a little bit and becomes a little mediocre so i did enjoy the movie, but i want to make sure people save money at home. don't see this 3-d. the 3-d is absolutely you a full. it looks terrible. see it in 2-d and stay for the credits after the film for a huge surprise. you can find an interview with
