*I got to see this for an early screening at my job.
*Of course I have been wanting to see this ever since it was announced.
*The trailers looked incredible and had a different atmosphere to them reminding me of movies like Mud or Joe.
*James Mangold has also directed/wrote Walk the Line.
*For only directing he also did Identity and the previous The Wolverine.
*For writing only he also brought one of my all time favorite cartoons Oliver & Company.
*Michael Green was responsible for writing the awful Green Lantern yet he is one of the writers for the upcoming Alien and Blade Runner movies.
*Scott Frank also returns from writing The Wolverine. He also did work on A Walk Among the Tombstones, The Lookout, Minority Report, and Flight of the Phoenix.
*This is the first film of note from David James Kelly.
*Anyways since embargo should be lifted I will share my thoughts on the whole thing.
*It's about time we get a Wolverine film with an R rating of which it most definitely earns.
*There really isn't much in terms of holding back intensity here.
*The fight scenes are raw and ruthless.
*The characters are utilized the way they finally should be.
*Hugh Jackman shows his best performance as the character he has played for close to two decades!
*Newcomer Dafne Keen showed real talent and her angry face was excellent.
*Really everyone did a fantastic job with their roles.
*By far this is the most serious of X-Men related films, but it still manages to throw in jokes and moments that will make you laugh.
*I would also have to say it's the best X-Men film so far.
*Atmospherically it was a beautiful movie too.
*The director and the writers really took care to make this project worthwhile.
*There is no stinger at the end so there is no need to stay after.
*In my opinion this is the best of the X-Men films so far. It's relentlessly brutal and gritty, but it's how it should have been from the first one. It's a whole lot of fun from beginning to end. I'm truly impressed with this one. I have to say once it is out for the public go see it asap. You will not be disappointed.
