The Wolverine: Les Miz II
Last time we saw Hugh Jackman he was the miserablest character in the movie Les Miserable. Poor Jean Valjean couldn't cut a break. Oh, how he suffered— this man of honesty and principle— in this story about the French Revolution. But the audiences who watched the flick were ecstatic.
Now the tables have turned.
It's the audience that's in misery.
This adaptation of the Marvel comic book character with sword like spikes jutting from his hands, doesn't cut it at all. The Movie Slut read that it was tailored for the Asian market, but that shouldn't preclude enjoyment on this continent.
Sadly, the movie isn't so bad that it's good. It's just—to use a scientific term— feh.
