I recently watched The Wolverine, and while not perfect, I felt like it was a major improvement over X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The role of Yukio is well cast, and I would be happy to see her in future installments. Even in his fifth outing, Hugh Jackman still does not seem bored by the role, and that's a good thing - his devotion helps make up for the fact that he is at least a foot and a half too tall to be playing the character. I liked the smaller, more personal stakes in the film and all the nods to Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's character-defining mini-series.
