Spoilers Except that wasn't the only flaw. The entire movie as a whole was incoherent. It had no clear villain or plotline till the very end. One of the most annoying parts was Yashida's "character arc." I say that in quotations because in the beginning he seemed like a pretty good guy. They made a point of showing that he saved the prisoners, and let Wolverine go. He also took in that girl (her name is slipping my mind) Then in the end he is an evil sociopath who tries to kill his daughter and his friend. I guess he was corrupted by his life of luxury. My second point is no clear villain, and even more so no clear motivations. So in the beginning the Yakuza are kind of the villain. Because they want Moriko for some reason. Where they hired by the attorney guy? DId they just want her cause she's powerful now? What? And then I guess Yashida or Viper wanted her. And also Shingen because I guess he was jealous? Then in the end she was of no importance at all and did nothing. I guess she killed the bad guy. What were Vipers motivations in all this? I guess she worked for Yashida. But in the beginning he had little drones in his lungs. Where they healing him? Was Viper betraying him? How did he not see those? But then there were some in jars. And.......what......what's going on? It's Shingen! No wait, Viper is behind it all! Crap, it's Yashida! This movie was kind of okay I guess. I wouldn't call it a character drama though. These are more nitpicks, but why did the directors/writers not read a single Wolverine comic? They obviously didn't. Wolverine spent a bunch of time in Japan and is actually fluent in the language. But in the movie he was a stupid uncivilized foreign asshole. As I stated earlier, why was he a terrible fighter? Why is a martial artist with a hundred or so years of experience and military training getting handled by nameless fodder? My final point is about the names. This is how I imagine the producers. "Hey, I read on the wiki that there is this guy named Harada. Let's cram some guy in the movie named Harada! Comic fans will love it! I also heard that there was this evil guy names Shingen. Let's cram him in there too!" Except then their roles in the movie made no sense. I don't know. I would give the movie 2.5 out of 5 stars.
