  1. The Wolverine

    Refreshingly low-key and personal for a superhero comic book film.

  2. Review of James Mangold’s The Wolverine

    The tendency for film adaptations of superhero comics has been to provide spectacle and city-smashing action. The stakes are always high in these films; the whole of humanity or mutantkind itself is usually in danger of imminent destruction or oppression. The Wolverine, which sees the character mooching around Japan charged with protecting just a single woman, is pretty refreshing for its small-scale ambitions.
