In terms of chronological order, The Wolverine takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) rather than X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). I have always loved movies that talk about the pains of immortality, so I love this aspect of the movie. There is a good action sequence that takes place on train. Other than that, however, the actions are smaller scale than I hoped. The lack of other mutants on the side of Wolverine also makes it slightly less exciting for me. The story is good, until a plot twist that makes me wonder whether the whole thing makes complete sense.
Note: during the credits, there is an important teaser for the next X-Men movie. We get to see someone important.
