His fighting style is definitely more polished in this.

Damn, choreography is sexy! It's on the same level as the Transporter/Bourne movies. I'm really digging this, more than ever before. Ahhh, the fight scenes alone are gonna make it the best 'X' film to date!

All I hear from people is bitching about the train scene. These people act like action movies don't break the laws of physics like it's going out of style... like this is a new phenomenon or something. Ridonculous.
TheWolverine08 - 7/9/2013, 5:24 AM
Logan is looking like a real fighter in this movie! He really does look like "he's the best there is". I like it!
Embassada - 7/9/2013, 5:28 AM
I find it odd the MPAA have yet to give this movie an rating when it's two weeks left from being released. Could it be they're revealing it the last minute because it's R rated so they have more people to see it?
MrReese - 7/9/2013, 5:30 AM
I watched X-Men 2 the other day.Logan going ham at the mansion best part.Also liked Pyro vs the cops.
MrMartinMarvel - 7/9/2013, 5:32 AM
Looking good, though I would prefer if they had him go all out Wolverine. You know, killing hordes of people in seconds, cutting people to pieces, and not screaming at the top of his lungs when he gets stabbed by a puny knife.

Say what you want about the bullet train sequence (at worst, I think it was just okay), but the rest of the fights and action look pretty damn good.

You see Logan straight up stabbing people and slashing them in the face, which is pretty awesome. None of that slashing-and-just-hitting-the-wall crap. Bloody claws are a cool bonus-- really glad to see them.

The trailers have shown more killing than what was in the entirety of Origins.
DeadManDann - 7/9/2013, 5:35 AM
@Embassada

It's been given a PG13. There's an article about it here.
Mmasoldier - 7/9/2013, 5:42 AM
Movies looking good. Just don't fail me!
Embassada - 7/9/2013, 5:42 AM
@DeadManDann
I've googled it and all I see is that it's either rumored to be R or an hard PG-13. I even heard that the theatrical may be PG-13 and they'll come out with the R version for bluray so nothing technically haven't been officially confirmed.
EpitomeofAwesome - 7/9/2013, 5:52 AM
Looks cool. Hope there's an R version for BluRay
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 7/9/2013, 6:11 AM
There is rumors of a 'R' rating, rumors for a 'PG-13'.

Now, there is solid speculation of there being 2 cuts of the film, one being toned down...

Also, the article posted a few days back was not official. AMC Theaters is notorious for posted what is rumored. They're essentially Wikipedia.Nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

I do agree with @Embassada. I think it would be amazing if they kept it under wraps until the last minute. It is odd, it having 3-4 trailers and multiple TV Spots without a "This film is rated (Fill in the blank)". I'm not wanting a 'R' rating for the sake of Wolverine just spewing blood all over the damn place, but the way the sceipt plays out, it's very obvious it's meant to be 'R' rated. If Looper was rated 'R', I don't see why this can't be.

This looks good. I'm cautiously optimistic.
DeadManDann - 7/9/2013, 6:23 AM
@ Embassada

Mangold confirmed it on Twitter.
jimoakley666 - 7/9/2013, 6:29 AM
Lot's of stabby slicey action. Very nice.
breakUbatman - 7/9/2013, 6:31 AM
@MrMartinMarvel

I actually like the screaming when stabbed part, he's not invulnerable after all, he just heals fast.

I remember there was that one X-Men story way back, where some crazy dude with energy blasts breaks into the mansion and tortures Storm by making her choose a mutant for him to kill. She chose Wolverine - he got half fried to death which bought enough time for Colossus to restrain the psycho. After that Wolverine was quite pissed off even though it was the logical decision and saved everyone else.

Anyways long story short I think it's more realistic when he reacts to pain.
DropAload - 7/9/2013, 6:35 AM
SLICE THAT SHIT UP!!!!!
TelaVizion - 7/9/2013, 6:48 AM
Have yall seen the new commercial where he takes "silver samurai's" glowing sword away from him to slice him with?

The sword is still glowing in Wolvie's hand. Now I'm wondering if SS will even be a mutant still. Thats clearly how he'll defeat that robotic type suit.
DanteSparda - 7/9/2013, 7:20 AM
Ok, I think I have seen enough, just going to wait two and a half weeks to watch this, picture me sold.

@TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM

Probably there would be a PG13 version for teathers and a R rated director's cut version for DVD/Blue Ray.
Axeium - 7/9/2013, 7:39 AM
Looks pretty cool. I'm sold. I just really hope there's a bloodier directors cut when it comes out on blu-ray.
ekrolo2 - 7/9/2013, 7:42 AM
This whole rating this has been idiotic for years now, they should either change PG-13 to PG-15 or 16 or just make a rating between R and PG-13, that way they can get away with more things, appeal to the broad audience and make people shut the ever loving [frick] up about a non bloody, gore fest Wolverine movie.

We get it, if a Wolverine film doesn't have him rip a guys insides out and eat them or some such shit its not a real Wolverine movie, you've beaten us over the head with this, we get it, now respectfully shut the [frick] up about it already, its really goddamn annoying at this point.
TheWolverine08 - 7/9/2013, 8:03 AM
@ekrolo2 Quoted for the truth.
R888 - 7/9/2013, 9:38 AM
Can't wait :) wolverine fights scenes looks better than ever.
hescian - 7/9/2013, 9:55 AM
"The battle within himself"
What battle????
As seen in all these movies, he's pretty much ALWAYS done the right thing, his whole life. Even in the trailers for this movie, he saves some Japanese (which would be his enemy) soldier he doesn't even know.
Where's this supposed inner conflict?

I don't mind that there isn't a ton of gore (it's a comic book movie, box office receipts and merchandising is important), I don't even mind that they don't have the brown/yellow or blue/yellow costumes. Just give us a reason to believe in the character arc, and character growth.

For Pete's sake, Jennifer Garner's Elektra had more inner conflict...
Happy11 - 7/9/2013, 10:18 AM
@embassada it is a pg 13 and it has been confirmed.
NeoBaggins - 7/9/2013, 10:44 AM
This is a critical time for Jackman's Wolvy. There isn't much going on here that separates it from ORIGINS other than Jackman promising something new, which he's supposed to do.

For me, if he does anything different from wondering around grunting about his past, who he isn't anymore and what he did or used to do that wasn't nice, this can be good. He should know who he is by now. Damn.

Also, has anyone seen the "Official" 20th Century Fox intro for The Wolverine on CBM's YouTube channel?
PeterParker1991 - 7/9/2013, 1:40 PM
I wanna see some damn blood! Wolverine needs to go al out on these chumps!
AdamX - 7/9/2013, 1:49 PM
Showing all the good stuff in trailers and promo's lol. Movie's gonna bomb.
CoolantTech - 7/9/2013, 3:58 PM
I really do hope this is the Wolverine movie we've been waiting on, hell.. the Prisoner's movie trailer had him japing out and snaping more the than the other X-men movies... "WHERE'S. MY. DAUGHTER."

I have faith in this movie though, always loved Hugh as Wolvie, he just plays the character so badass!
