Regular heatwave today - temperatures above 30° Celcius (86+ Fahrenheit) and no wind to cool you down resulting in an extreme humidity according to our standards - hence me once again escaping to a cool cinema:
Like the X-Men movies, so not hard to persuade me to go in and see this movie.
The scene is quickly moved to Japan, where a dying Yashida-san has requested his presense to say goodbye - Wolverine saved his life when the Americans dropped the Nagasaki A-bomb. Wolverine meets Japanese culture and traditions at a very high paste: the neom lights of Tokyo, fast train, yakuza, ninjas - inspirations from a few Japanese movies has fingerprints on this movie making it a little more "real". A bite of good humor and some twists keep this story going and you entertained, plus Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is pure eye-candy ;o)
And a hint: Keep watching the movie despite the subtiltles starting at the end - you are in for an extra treat.
