The Wolverine

FXM | 7:44 pm

Thanks in no small part to the input of director James Mangold ("Walk the Line"), Hugh Jackman gives his "X-Men" character an engrossing reboot in this well-staged 2013 adventure. An appeal from an old friend (Hal Yamanouchi) to protect his daughter (Tao Okamoto) sets Wolverine on a mission in contemporary Japan. There, he faces not only other enemies — including one atop a bullet train, in a great sequence — but the one within himself.
