A Chess game of wits is played in the newest installation in the X-Men series, “The Wolverine.” Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine and finds our disgruntle hero back to his old roving ways. The movie picks up where we last saw him in “X-Men: The Last Stand”, still at wit’s end, still battling his demons, still missing Jean Grey.
But there isn’t much time for him to wallow in his misery as he is conned into a trip to Japan with the promise of becoming “mortal” again. But, as is life, everything comes with a price. His life and mutant powers may be at stake as he loses his ability to heal and must rely solely on his ingenuity and craftiness if he hopes to survive. This is the first time we are introduced to one of Wolverine’s fiercest nemesis, Silver Samurai.
“The Wolverine” will hit theatres this summer.
