    Finally - a superhero movie that doesn't feel like every other superhero movie.

    The Wolverine is one of the better comic-book movies of 2013, thanks in large part to an electric performance by Hugh Jackman.

    It's simply a more focused scenario than usual, full of violence done up with a little more coherence and visceral impact than usual.
