Your summer movies now need to gross $90 million opening weekend lest Hollywood dub it a "disappointment". In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see Hollywood pull a Mattel and blame the fans who didn't show up opening weekend for the low numbers and threaten not to make a Wolverine 3
I haven't seen it either. Fiance was sick all weekend and she wants to go too.
Couple things I've heard: There's an "awkward" scene with Jean Grey (?) This was a headline on one of those yahoo "news" blurbs. And since they constantly use words like "awkward", "gaffe", and "bizarre" to get people to pay attention an click the link, this really could mean anything.
After credits scene leads into Days of Future Past. So stick around.

so nope, I'll wait for it until Netflix. I won't support these comic movies that take a dump on comics

I have to admit, I really enjoyed the twists and turns the story followed. It built itself up to a kind of surprise ending (although my wife predicted it), and overall it was a good movie. It just wasn't awesome like The Avengers was.

I thought it was great, especially the first two acts. On their own, they were amazing actually. If the third act had matched the first two, this would be one of the best superhero movies made. It just got too comic bookish at the end. The finale saved it, but from the time Wolverine gets captured to the time he defeats Silver Samurai, it was a little disappointing and not fitting of the rest of the movie because it just didn't match.
Viper was my biggest fear going in, and she gave me good reason, too. She was a total waste and not necessary. Pointless character that seemed only to be there for eye candy. Absolutely worthless inclusion. And her character wouldn't even be cool in the comics. Totally lame.
Overall, I'd give it an A-. And I enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed Man Of Steel, which was also great. Wolverine is a much more compelling character, and Hugh Jackman is a much better actor than Henry Cavill (whom I like, too).

Another thing I'd like to add...I really liked the notion of Logan being vulnerable for a change, mortal even. He's really on-par with Superman most times, considering his healing factor, so for him to be able to be hurt was a great angle. It was something that gave the character a great new dimension and added a lot of tension when usually you just don't worry about Logan. I'm sure I'd love this movie more if I see it a second time.

They can get away with a lot for a PG-13 these days... Its not the rating that brought this movie down...
