The film tells something about the history of Logan - alias Wolverine, revealing his mysterious past, his complex relationship to Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber) alias Sabretooth and the ominous Weapon-X program. The viewer will find out who Wolverine really is, and also a bit about the roots of the X-Men. Hugh Jackman impersonates again that character that made him a superstar: Wolverine - the man with claws of steel, remarkable self-healing abilities, gruffy charme and a good portion of dry humor. Thanks to a sneak-preview in Helsinki I can already tell you what you can expect of this latest X-Men spin-of, and IŽll try very hard not to reveal too much.

Therefore only those hints: What appears to be a too plain and simple Kain-and-Abel plot (carried beautifully by those excellent actors and therefore absolutely convincing), enfolds later as a more complex story. With so many surprises, that it became a bit too much for me sometimes. Despite all those many turning points I find the story lacking substance and depth, in comparison with the X-Men-Saga. Well, perhaps I had expected too much... But with those almost 2 hours youŽll get first class entertainment, racing action and many breathtaking man-on-man combat scenes, so perhaps this little flaw - being a bit superficial - doesnŽt matter too much. Moreover, ladies, you get to see a half to fully (!!) naked Hugh Jackman - so who really misses political/social criticism (the backbone of the X-Men)? Therefore this one is definitely recommendable...

PS: In Finland there is a K-13 rating, for Germany I donŽt know about any age restrictions.
