This was a great action packed movie with a good story line.

The only thing I can say that I liked about this movie was the ending after the credits.

The Unrated Cut runs about 12 minutes longer than the Theatrical Cut, and contains several new scenes including a much expanded ninja action scene. Wolverine drops a few more choice curse words and there is now CG-gore. I'd say it's more like a hard PG-13 rather than an R-rated cut.

The UNRATED Cut is much better than the theatrical cut.

**Note, SPOILERS follow, so read at your own risk**.

1) There is more gore, but primarily CGI blood sprays. Some shots of Wolverine's claws going through people's limbs, but nothing explicit. No graphic dismemberments.

2) Wolverine drops a few more f-bombs.

3) Some of the opening scenes depicting Wolverine at the POW camp are a little longer.

4) The scene involving Wolverine, an arrow, and the hunter is slightly longer and more brutal.

5) Slightly longer dialogue with Yukio on the way to the plane.

6) Relationship between Mariko and Yashida and Shingen and Yashida is better fleshed out in the unrated cut.

7) A new scene where Yashida asks Logan his age.

8) A new scene with Yashida talking to Shingen on his deathbed, telling him, "You are not the man to lead Yashida".

9) A new scene at the love hotel where the Yakuza show up and get into a fight with Wolverine. Mariko intervenes and demonstrates some fighting skill as well.

10) Wolverine's operation on himself is bloodier.

11) The fight scene between Shingen and Wolverine is slightly longer and now depicts Shingen rather graphically cutting into Wolverine's shoulder blade (no blood though).

12) A new scene where Viper gives Hadana poison for his arrows, which he later uses to bring down Wolverine at the ninja fight.

Comparing "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to "The Wolverine" is like comparing apples to oranges. They are both about Marvel's burly and animalistic Wolverine, but they could not be any more different. Origins seemed to explore a bit of Wolvie's past under the framework of the prior X-Men movies (i.e. familiar characters, settings, and themes), but unfortunately it didn't hit home like the prior X-Men films. The writing fell flat, because 20th Century Fox took odd twists and turns with fan favorites like Gambit and Deadpool and then never expanded on them in future films like they promised. Instead of bridging Wolverine's backstory to the acclaimed X-Men trilogy, Fox ended up widening the gap.

However, "The Wolverine," takes an entirely different approach to the eponymous character. Audiences get to see the Adamantium and claws stripped away in a more emotionally driven film. Wolverine is facing an existential crisis. Following the events of "X-Men: The Last Stand" filmgoers get to see the Wolverine battle is own mortality, or rather near-immortality, during a series of dream sequences centering-around Jean Grey, which is reprised by award-winning Dutch actor, Famke Janssen. This creates a great underlying plot, and immediately sets "The Wolverine" apart from the other X-Men films.

Surprisingly enough, "The Wolverine" closely follows the original comic book volume of Wolverine, Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's four-part miniseries, that set the tone and standard for Wolverine and his story arcs. Even though the film is set after the events of "X-Men: The Last Stand," instead of "X-Men Origins," "The Wolverine" accurately showcases the events of the 1982 comic book series.

The extended version itself is NOT in 3D but the only way to get it is if you buy the BLU RAY 3D set

If you want the actual movie, buy this version

Wow! This is just a review of the difference brought by the Extended cut. Let me just make one thing clear, there's no version of Wolverine that's acceptable for children. I don't know why Hollywood even tries. A PG-13 berserker killer is still a berserker killer. With that said, this extended version has more cussing. I'm talking F-bombs and S-bombs here. The violence is turned up to the point where Wolverine stabs one of the Yakuza and his blood (or guts) splatter onto the screen (Yes!). There are other scenes with blood in them that I didn't notice in the theatrical version, but nothing too gory except maybe for the ninja scene. Speaking of which, there's a a whole scene with the ninjas that was cut out of the theatrical cut that is so deliciously bloody and violent that it reminded me of Sceptic Avenger, only with blood (Saints Row 2 fans will know the reference). If you're a Wolverine fan, don't even bother with the PG-13 version. What's the point? This guy is a killer and you came to see what he does best, but what he does isn't very nice.

I still have to drop a star for the stupid robot, that worthless mutant called Viper (in name only), and the apparent continuity flaw in that Wolverine appears to have memories from World War II. As far as I remember, everything from at least the weapon X program and back is a blank. It could be argued that him visiting Nagasaki jogged his memory of his time there, but he has a memory of this on the way to Japan as he looks out the window of the plane. Very confusing and annoying. Also, there's no mention of the mutant cure from X3, which is ridiculous considering why Wolverine is brought to Japan in the first place (before the truth is revealed). Wolverine acts like removing mutant power is impossible.
